Two of Australia’s most exciting young composers, award-winning singer-songwriter Jack Carty and former Papa vs. Pretty bassist Gus Gardiner will embark on a much-anticipated Australian tour with string quartet this June-July, in support of their brand new collaborative album HOSPITAL HILL.
Sweeping, intricate, moving and beautiful – recorded live, in complete takes, over two days in a Sydney studio – the ten-song collection, co-written and produced by the duo, is a reflection of their individual and combined skills, magnified throughout by a stellar string quartet that included members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
It’s a coming together of poetry and playfulness, of vulnerability and cinematicity, of intricacy and intimacy. Don’t miss this chance to see Jack Carty & Gus Gardiner perform HOSPITAL HILL live with their string quartet at Camelot Lounge.
Opening the night is Sydney’s own Leroy Lee. Enchanting songsmith and acoustic guitarist, Leroy Lee creates hypnotic lamp-lit tunes, drawing the listener into his unique world. From driving guitar riffs to intricate finger-picking melodies, Leroy is reminiscent of English folk legends like Nick Drake and Bert Jansch.
