Tracey Barnett & Jere Sosa
Monday 11 March 7.00pm
Western Australian singer-songwriter Tracey Barnett has earned a reputation for heartfelt songwriting and exhilarating shows thanks to her distinctive, high-energy brand of blues and roots. That reputation saw her awarded ‘Best Regional Act’ at the 2018 West Australian Music Industry Awards.
The multi-instrumentalist mixes experimental flair with traditional rock and country, creating a fusion that’s impossible to resist. Packed with emotion, her dynamic sound inspires hopefulness, connectedness and pure, unadulterated fun.
Barnett’s debut album Heart, Soul, Feeling was released in 2017, earning multiple WAM Award nominations and radio airplay on Triple J and ABC.
Her intimate and thrilling live shows are not to be missed.
Hailing from Buenos Aires, Jere Sosa arrived in WA back in 2014 with a guitar and a head full of rich musical influences. His approach is founded upon the melodic songwriting of The Beatles and the guitar playing finesse of Carlos Santana, with punk, jazz and Latin feels within the living-breathing mix. Sosa performs with his band but retains a solid and continuing existence busking as a soloist, utilising a loop station that he adopted upon a trip to New Zealand some six years ago and taking songs to new heights even on his own.
Sosa’s debut album, Coming back home in two footsteps, was recorded by Daniel Brown at Decibel Audio Productions and mastered at Poons Head with Rob Grant. The album features A Taste Of Honey, which won the ‘World’ category at the WAM Song Of The Year Awards in mid-2017. The album itself offers a diversity of Sosa’s musical spirit – many styles, many places, many sounds to revel in.
And many good times indeed. Jere will be joined on the night by drummer Mark Beasy.
