JADE MACRAE | $20
September 30 from 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
With a career spanning 25 years, and a rich musical history steeped in R&B and Jazz, multiple ARIA award nominee and APRA award winner Jade MacRae moves into 2022 with a string of tours across Australia, the US and Europe, following her acclaimed 2020 LP, “Handle Me With Care”.
Whilst ”Handle Me With Care” paid homage to the original rhythm and blues of the 50s and 60s, Jade is underway recording the next installment which will see the sound evolve into something tougher and more electric, pivoting to sounds reminiscent of STAX iconic records of the 70s, and reflecting the mood and challenges of the past two years. Creating this new record has, as always been a cathartic experience, and lyrically sees MacRae exploring themes of personal dislocation, identity, and social injustice. Tightly stacked horns, hypnotic drum grooves and an ever present wall of soulful background vocals form the sonic backbone of this new body of work.
