Sunday saw the return of the West Coast Blues and Roots Festival to Fremantle Park. Now in its ninth year, the festival produced a diverse line up, full of local, national and international talent. Despite the ominous rain clouds at the beginning of the day, the event went ahead with only a slight shower of rain, which did little to dampen the spirits of those in attendance.
The looney Tomas Ford launched his new album and erotic calendar at the Amplifier Bar. Supporting him were array of artists including Boys Boys Boys!, Simo Soo, Felicity Groom & Diger Rokwell, Injuried Ninja, Byron Bard, John Conway and Laith Tierney.
Perth artist Felicity Groom launched her debut album Gossamer at The Bakery. Supporting her were Nick Allbrook, Rabbit Island and Joe McKee. Stuart Sevastos brings us photos from the night.
Gossamer is the debut album from Perth siren Felicity Groom, and I have to admit even after four or five listens I am still struggling to believe that it is her debut. Such is the quality of the record, and the confidence and poise with which Groom delivers it. Gossamer is a hauntingly beautiful record replete with a fantastic ethereal and mesmerising vocal performance from Groom, as well as engaging and vibrant instrumentation.
Perth-born folk/pop songbird, Felicity Groom has announced she will release her highly-anticipated debut album, ‘Gossamer’, this 11th November on Spinning Top through Inertia.
Featuring a wide array of guests including members of Jebediah, Tame Impala and The Kill Devil Hills, ‘Gossamer’ is a bold pop record which not only shows her multi-instrumental talents (including guitar, autoharp and keys), but her exciting musical arrangements.
