Guitar Fight! Frank Sultana & Julian James Kiama!
Penny Whistlers, 5/31 Shoalhaven St,, Kiama NSW 2533
A late-night set in an inner-city bar, or a festival stage, solo or fronting his band, chances are that this ‘new’ bluesman has played somewhere in your neck of the woods in the last 5 years.
Frank Sultana tells stories of loss, betrayal and revenge, set in imaginary backwater towns inhabited by strangely likeable yet shady characters. He delivers his songs with dark hypnotic guitar parts that are carefully layered with his raw whiskey drenched voice.
If you like your music raw and real, dark and uplifting, then check out Frank Sultana. You may have found your new favourite artist.
Julian James Hot on the old timey heels of his recent ‘Silver Spade’ album, Julian takes his sound up a notch with new song ‘Looking For a Light’, a ramshackle ditty in the great honky tonk tradition that features a backing band made up of a who’s who of fine young Melbourne talent. Iseula Hingano of Blues Eyes Cry, Nadia Rose of Rambal, Rockabilly pianist extraordinaire Ezra Lee all lend a hand, and the full-blown horn section doesn’t hurt either.
