Johnny Bakerlite “Thinking Out Loud”
Sweet, sad, quirky funny and dark, The songs of Johnny Bakerlite ( aka Sculptor John Turier) take you into other worlds. Part dream, part memory.
Falling into the Ballard of Jack Hill you will discover a man who “no longer owns his bone” after performing the ghost dance or in the Lament for a Sad Flag you will hear how “a fickle smart bird can forget any word and replace it with what it needs now” or be aghast for “Dear Henry” when you learn that his “sleeping bed gets sold for the price of two tomatoes and a thin wedding ring of gold”.
Bakerlite underpins these poetic narratives with a dexterous guitar accompaniment sometimes as a driven percussive pulse or a bitter sweet lamenting eco.
Steel City Sue “Boom Town”
Fiddle player and songwriter Sue Morley from Newcastle who recorded her debut album of original songs ‘Boom Town’ in the studio of duo Truckstop Honeymoon in Lawrence Kansas, USA.
The album has been well received by critics and the title track ‘Boom Town’ was awarded the 2018 Australian Roots Music Award for best song – a work that goes to the heart of exploitation and change in Newcastle.
Her alt-country sound incorporates old time and bluegrass feels and her original lyric style covers political stories and comment, dry-humoured country heartache, and dreamy visions of stepping off the beaten path.
