Jack Carty and Maz O'Connor
Jack Carty and Maz O’Connor are two of the most engaging songwriters on the UK acoustic scene and have ploughed independent furrows on their paths to success.
Award-winning Australian songwriter Jack Carty has released four critically acclaimed albums plus two EPs, toured extensively across Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK and Europe, and has received the National Music Oz award for 'Acoustic Singer-Songwriter of the Year' and a biannual 'APRA Professional Development Award'. In the midst of all this, he decided to start his own label and release Home State - an album he produced, performed and recorded completely independently, which became one of Rhythms Magazine's Top 10 albums of 2016.
Maz O'Connor's considered and perceptive lyricism explores complex relationships between people and their surroundings, often presenting the modern city as a microcosm. Her most recent album The Longing Kind was hailed by press and pundits alike. Already firmly established in the roots scene, Maz has recently begun to explore a more contemporary soundscape. Collaborations with producers from the world of electronic pop music have lead to an exploration of new sonic spaces, and inspired a collection of shadowy, Scandinavian-esque, folk-noir songs.
2018 sees their paths converge for one very special UK tour, celebrating independent voices and the power of great songwriting.
An album of confession and honesty, but also humour and the sublime ★★★★
There is an inquiring intelligence as well as an emotional sensibility at work here…she plays and sings beautifully ★★★★★
