    Jack Carty

    Folk Rock

    It's been a busy few years for Jack Carty. Following the release of 3 critically acclaimed full-length albums and 2 EP's; extensive national/international touring; appearances at SXSW, Primavera and Canadian Music Week; co-writes with the likes of Dan Wilson (Adele, Taylor Swift, Semisonic), Josh Pyke, Katie Noonan and Thomas Rawle (Papa Vs Pretty, Dreller); and an APRA Professional Development award in the Popular Contemporary Category; Carty decided to start his own label and independently release his fourth studio album Home State in August 2016. 

    Self-recorded and produced by Carty in a tiny Brisbane apartment, it debuted at #1 on the AIR Independent album chart, #36 on the ARIA Album Chart and was named one of Rhythms Magazine's Top 10 albums of 2016. After such a successful launch on home soil, Home State was picked up for release in the UK by Gilded Lily/Absolute. Carty quickly followed suit in 2017: relocating to write, record and tour from his new home near London.

    Things haven't stopped since the move. Carty has filled his days with headline shows, tours across The UK/Europe with the likes of Bernard Fanning and Josh Pyke, a sold out three-week residency at London's famous Green Note, and putting the final touches on 'Hospital Hill' -  an album for vocal, guitar and string quartet, co-written and produced with long-time collaborator Gus Gardiner (Papa vs Pretty, Montaigne) and featuring members of The Australian Chamber Orchestra. Due for worldwide release 1 June.

  • Casual Rites

    Casual Rites

    Rock

    Led by Phil Matte on guitar and vocals and completed by Mike Morris on bass, Pascal Denis (Whisky Legs) on drums, Nathan Vanheuverzwijn (Les Louanges, Émile Bilodeau, Nicolet) playing the keys and David St-Germain (Abrdeen, KPLR) on guitar, the band offers its introspective, dreamy yet liberating musical proposal which combines raw and soulful melodies and patterns. Inspired by southern American traditions and by the roots of rock, blues and folk music, the five-piece group transmits its undeniable taste for life without constraint as well as its appetite for wide open spaces and endless roads to be discovered while driving a bit too fast with all windows down.

    After playing a significant amount of shows across the province of Quebec over the past few years (including Festival d’été de Québec) and after releasing a self-produced EP back in 2015 as well as two music videos — “Unfettered” and “Shift” — which have been broadcasted on Much Loud, Musique Plus and Musimax, the band is now ready to write a new chapter of its existence.

    Following it’s release on November 3rd, their first self-titled album received rave reviews.
