Live Review: Jack Carty + Jordan Millar - Grace Emily Hotel, Adelaide (20.08.15)

On a rainy Thursday evening in Adelaide, the Grace Emily Hotel down the city's west end hosts two of my favourite Australian songwriters for a generous night of live music and good time times. Jack Carty and Jordan Millar have been touring together around the country over the past few weeks in their 'By Request' format and it's been one that has been incredibly well-received. With the idea of the show being that the fans dictate each set via suggestions made prior to the show, both Carty's and Millar's sets present themselves as unique in each city. There are obvious favourites that have been popping up, a few surprises and, as we saw on this night, a foray into the golden era of the 90's boy band.

Jack Carty and Jordan Millar announce 'Intimate and By Request' tour dates for August!

Off the back of two sold out shows at The Newsagency in Sydney this past March, Jack Carty and Jordan Millar - talented musicians, songwriters, mates - have decided to take this show format to more venues around the country this August! Both musicians have been working solidly on material that has been released to much acclaim recently; Carty with his third album Esk and Millar with The Wheel EP in 2014. Seeing the two perform together has meant that songs have been given a special opportunity to develop further in some intimate spaces, and it's a fun vibe of show that the two are keen to share with more fans around the place.

Single Stream: Jack Carty "Be Like The Water" (2014)

Jack Carty's new single, "Be Like the Water", is the first to be taken from his upcoming third LP Esk is makes us very excited for the new music to come! As usual, Carty's vocal talent shines here, though the arrangement on "Be Like the Water" also has to be noted. It's a stunning atmosphere conjured on this one but considering the music Carty's become synonymous with producing, it's hardly surprising this one's a winner.

Jack Carty set for tour dates in Australia and NZ for new single "Be Like The Water"!

One of our favourite performers, Jack Carty, is going to be hitting a venue near you quite soon! This isn't so surprising, given he's been touring quite hard around the country with the likes of Josh Pyke and Katie Noonan in recent months, plus off his own back through 2014 as well. BUT, we're stoked to see he's got a new single in "Be Like the Water" and because of this, Carty's going to be doing the rounds again (including a stop in NZ!) from October through until the end of the year.

Following the single's release, Carty and his housemates have created and released a video clip for the track, which you can watch here on the AU! Enjoy:
