2015 saw the release of Tully’s heartfelt debut album The Keeping, a poetic reflection of a troubled past with a humble realisation of a brighter future. The album, partly recorded in Tully’s farmhouse lounge room, was warmly received, with the debut single, Prairie Lawn premiering on Triple J Roots N All and its cinematic film clip premiering on Rhythms Magazine online. Echoes of Tully’s varied musical past are evident on this record.

“You can trace the roots of the music, Texan troubadours like Townes Van Zandt, and Neil Young (see the Crazy Horse-esquse guitarwork of ‘Rest Easy’) but there is something distinctive about Tully’s style too. Maybe it’s those dark nights in the country out on the farm.” – Noel Mengel, The Courier Mail Brisbane

This is not the first musical incarnation for Jack Tully. However, this round of offerings is a far more personal, honest approach that whittles things down to their core. “This is intensely personal, sparse songwriting.” – Matt Webber, ABC Radio

“The songwriting comes out of some strange and dark times but in a way where things can be taken somewhere and set free, so to speak. Maybe even transformed a little.”

After a successful East Coast tour earlier this year, Tully is now writing new material and playing live with a five-piece band and a more stripped back three piece, both including his partner and collaborator, Deborah Marie and guitarist and neighbour, Grant McLean.

“Music is being free, nothing else really comes into it. Most other places in life you don’t get that freedom, but with music you have a chance to speak your truth and to make your own meaning of it all.”
