About the event

Fans of folk-rock, and especially of Bob Dylan's classic '60s-'70s "wild mercury sound", will want to make a date for the release party of this exciting new album. Composer, producer and singer Nicole Skeltys has assembled an impressive international band to perform her "21st century woman’s response to Dylan", in full for the first time.

This is original and accomplished songwriting weaving contemporary themes, wicked referential wordplay and bitter judgments through musical arrangements ranging from jangly upbeat protest to sparse introspective, through country twang to swaggering, knockabout frolics. Expect guitar, harmonica, organ, fiddle and trumpet!

Australian Skeltys has recorded eleven albums in styles spanning atmospheric country [Dust], boutique analogue dancefloor electronica [B(if)tek, Artificial], and ethereal femme-folk [The Jilted Brides]. Her twelfth release showcases her questing journeywoman lyrics, powerful arrangements and absurd humour. Recorded over four years in LA, London and Melbourne, the album was mastered by world-famous producer Jon Astley, and is available to buy on the night.

Nicole and her band The Disenchanted are joined by special guests Bobkat (stripped back LA rock with beguiling violin), and Austrian multi-instrumentalist loop-station virtuoso Magdalena Grabher, fresh from her European tour.
