Single of the Day: Jordan Millar "True Or Nothing" (2015)

Jordan Millar has long been a favourite with AU staff, the charismatic songwriter and performer always making an impact whenever we happen to catch him performing live. Regardless of the stage, Millar's music presents itself as a great fusion of rhythm, lyricism and depth - his narratives are heartfelt and after releasing two albums and a series of EPs through his career, the sonic development Millar has demonstrated through 2015 has been a natural progression as opposed to any unprecedented jut out into another direction. His latest single, "True Or Nothing", is another example.

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.

Jack Carty + Jordan Millar + Leroy Lee - Kings Cross Hotel (14. 07.11)


Three boys with guitars would seem like the typical ‘folk show’, however, Jack Carty’s most recent tour, "Hope, Smoke and Everything", managed to defy all odds with a line-up of Leroy Lee, Jordan Millar, and Jack Carty himself. In the dimly lit bar atop the Kings Cross Hotel - currently more affectionately known as the FBi Social Lounge - all three boys took turns performing their humble tunes.
