Jack Carty says
Award-winning, indie singer-songwriter Jack Carty will take his ever-growing swag of well-travelled songs to some of Australia’s more beautiful towns and venues between February and April 2017 on his 'Home State, High Ceilings' national tour; focusing on theatres, halls, churches and special spaces.

Stopping in at The Ellington Jazz Club - Perth on Thursday 6 April. Supported by independent, Brisbane-based songwriter O' Little Sister.

Many things are born of new marriages. Matching linen, tiny humans and for Jack, an album - Home State – which was independently released in Australia in August where it debuted at #36 on the ARIA Albums Chart and #1 on the AIR %100 Independent Album Chart.

Such was its impact on home shores that it was picked up in the UK by Gilded Lily Records/Absolute and released on 18 November 2016.

It’s been a huge year for Carty, whose talent for melody, wit and a gorgeous turn of phrase won him a much-coveted, biannual APRA Professional Development Award; saw him play Spain’s famous Primavera Sound Festival and tour nationally with Josh Pyke; and (in the space of twelve months) has taken him not once, but twice around Australia, New Zealand and the UK – with every show cementing his reputation as a writer and performer of incredible depth and imagination.

Home State was performed, recorded and produced by Carty in a tiny one-bedroom apartment in Brisbane’s Red Hill, during pockets of time between his upstairs neighbour's tap-dancing and his new wife Natasha’s Netflix addiction.

It is clear that - although Carty’s trademark honesty and hopefulness will never desert him - the lovelorn boy of One Thousand Origami Birds, Break Your Own Heart and Esk has evolved into a man of quiet confidence with a renewed excitement for stories and songwriting. Home State is undoubtedly his most accomplished record to date, in a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed releases.

Don’t miss this chance to see Jack perform live in carefully chosen, intimately beautiful venues across Australia.
