GRANT-LEE PHILLIPS
MASTERFUL SINGER AND SONGWRITER RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA
With Special Guest Matt Joe Gow
AUSTRALIAN TOUR – MAY 2018

Over an extensive career Grant-Lee Phillips has earned a reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter – an artist who can deliver lyrical observations with a dry and evocative sense of time and place.
His gift for reconciling classic touchstones with an adventurous sensibility has distinguished his work since he first emerged as the front-man of the acclaimed trio Grant Lee Buffalo in the early ‘90s.
At once cinematic in scope and disarmingly intimate, his captivating solo career has explored a variety of modes. Whether it be the electronic inventiveness of Mobilize, acoustic interplay of Virginia Creeper, chamber-pop of Little Moon, meditative solemnity of Walking in the Green Corn, Nashville inspired The Narrows or his latest and most urgent work, Widdershins – Phillips is not one to rest on the accolades of the past.
He’s a riveting live performer who thrives onstage. Nevertheless, a new generation have discovered Phillips through his role as the town troubadour on the cult television hit The Gilmore Girls (both in its original run and the 2016 reunion.)

Speaking of his new album, Widdershins, Phillips sees a kind of parallel with his earliest work with Grant Lee Buffalo. “That was also a time of intense social anxiety. The Gulf War, the LA riots – everything became cranked up. Then a few years later there was the earthquake we lived through, which also made for a time of uneasiness. I was in a heightened state when I wrote that stuff – as I am now.”

New Orleans’ THE ROAMIN’ JASMINE are headed down-under. The band, led by upright bass player and raconteur Taylor Smith, are currently on a 25 date tour of Europe, culminating in a performance at Maverick Fest (the UK’s #1 Americana festival and rated by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 5 UK festivals of the season). Special guest LACHLAN BRYAN & THE WILDES PLUS ZOE K
After Europe they’ll return to their long standing (3 years and counting) Sunday night residency at NOLA’s hipster Bacchanal
The RJ embody everything that we love about New Orleans. They’re a melting pot of old school big band influences (think Cab Calloway) and country blues (think Leadbelly or Son House) and they play with the inimitable swagger that can only come from starting on the streets of one of the greatest music towns on earth.
