After returning from NYC, Melbourne bassist-composer Sam Anning released two award winning albums attracting critical acclaim and an ARIA nomination. Earthen is his third septet album and is dedicated to the indomitable spirit of Indigenous Australian music icon, Uncle Archie Roach. Anning had the profound honour of being Uncle Archie’s bassist for three years before his passing in 2022. Featuring an ensemble of long-time Naarm/Melbourne-based collaborators, Andrea Keller, Kyrie Anderson, Mat Jodrell, Carl Mackey, Julien Wilson, and Theo Carbo, the album draws on the deep well of Roach’s wisdom, connection to the moment, resilience of spirit, and the medicinal power of music.
