Award-winning, indie-chart topping, independent Australian songwriter Jack Carty will take his ever-growing swag of well-travelled songs to some of Australia’s more beautiful towns and venues between February and April 2017.
Many things are born of new marriages. Matching linen, tiny humans and for Australian troubadour Jack Carty, an album – Home State – independently released in Australia on August 5 2016 and debuting at #36 on the ARIA Albums Chart and #1 on the AIR %100 Independent Album Chart.
Such was its impact on home shores that it was picked up for release in The U.K via Gilded Lily Records/Absolute on November 18 2016.
It’s been a huge year for Carty, whose talent for melody, wit and a gorgeous turn of phrase: won him a much-coveted, biannual APRA Professional Development Award; saw him play Spain’s Famous Primavera Sound Festival and tour nationally with Josh Pyke; and (in the space of twelve months) has taken him not once, but twice around Australia, New Zealand and the U.K – with every show, cementing his reputation as a writer and performer of incredible depth and imagination.
Home State was performed, recorded and produced by Carty in a tiny one-bedroom apartment in Brisbane’s Red Hill, during pockets of time between, his upstairs neighbours tap-dancing and his new wife Natasha’s Netflix addiction.
It is clear that – although Carty’s trademark honesty and hopefulness will never desert him – the lovelorn boy of One Thousand Origami Birds, Break Your Own Heart and Esk has evolved into a man of quiet confidence with a renewed excitement for stories and songwriting. Home State is undoubtedly his most accomplished record to date, in a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed releases.
Don’t miss this chance to see Jack perform live in intimately beautiful venues across Australia.
“The recently married Carty might well have found his happy place” ★★★★ — Mike Alexander, THE SUNDAY STAR TIMES
