Romero Records is excited to announce ‘Crossing’, the new collaboration between classical soprano Jane Sheldon (Pinchgut Opera, The Song Company, Elena Kats-Chernin, John Zorn) and guitarist Julian Curwin (The Tango Saloon, The Mango Balloon, Cannibal Spiders, Monsieur Camembert).
The pair first joined forces in experimental electronic pop band Gauche in the early 2000s (whose back-catalogue has just been re-released by Art As Catharsis). Now, more than a decade later, they bring together all of their intervening musical experiences for ‘Crossing’.
Though difficult to neatly categorise, a shared love for western film scores, folk song and early music may give some clues. ‘Crossing’ is music that evokes other lands, sometimes real, often imaginary.
“The music, gently bathing in the prevailing medieval ethos without descending to pastiche, is performed with an artistic rigour worthy of Jordi Savall. I know no higher praise.” 5 Stars John Shand SMH
Love, lust, revenge and murder never sounded so sweet and low down.
The Loud Hailers, AKA Christa Hughes and Ben Fink, first got together sharing a deep passion for early blues music and the extraordinary artists that produced it.
After jamming on the veranda a couple of times they started to write their own songs and now can’t keep quiet in their loud hailing glow.
Ben’s stunning guitar playing and Christa’s powerful voice make a dynamic duo indeed.
