Bradley shows that soul still has blood pumping in its veins. BILLBOARD
Nicknamed the Screaming Eagle of Soul, Charles Bradley’s late-in-life career surge has been remarkable. For years he hitchhiked around the USA, working odd jobs, until he was discovered impersonating James Brown in a smoky Brooklyn bar.
Mixing heartbreak and desperation with lashes of hope, the songs from his new release, Victim of Love, are psychedelic soul stories that need to be heard.
An inspired blend of Hip-Hop and Soul; the kind that is rare in the Australian scene. THE AU REVIEW
Evan Jones and Morgan Jones are not related, but they share a name and a commitment to head-nodding tunes under the moniker JONES Jnr. The Sydney duo are set to take the Festival by storm off the back of their successful endeavours in some of the country’s most exciting bands like Thundamentals and Rumpunch. With Evan’s daunting range perfectly complimenting Morgan’s breadth of beats, JONES Jnr. runs a gamut of Soul, from infectious Memphis style to contemporary pioneers like Gnarls Barkley.
