FUSION BOUTIQUE presents THE WEEPING WILLOWS + SMITH & JONES in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
THE WEEPING WILLOWS ‘You Reap What You Sow’ Album Launch Tour
+ SMITH & JONES
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 30th July 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.
– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –

2022 & 2021 CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’, Australian Folk Music and Music Victoria Award winners, The Weeping Willows (Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth) are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act but there’s something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it…

2017-2021 saw The Weeping Willows nominated for 10 x CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’ awards, 4 x Country Music Channel (CMC) awards, 2 x Australian Folk Music Awards (AFMAs), Live Act of the Year (Country) in the National Live Music Awards (NLMAs), performing at AmericanaFest (USA), Folk Alliance International (USA), Maverick Festival (UK), Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Out On The Weekend and the Australian Americana Music Honours.
In recent years they have supported Lukas Nelson & POTR (USA), Hayes Carll (USA), Iris DeMent (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA) and Willie Watson (USA) and completed national and international tours in support of their sophomore album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’, which received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone, The Australian and The Music.
A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape will always delight.

Smith & Jones, a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones, have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Since their very first meeting in 2014, Smith & Jones have toured extensively with their two albums Dark Gives Way (2017) and Something Worth Learning (2019) in tow, but always with their live shows at the heart of their partnership.
2022 will see Smith & Jones release new recorded work which looks set to further their reputation as a duo worthy of their high regard as both a live act, and their sensitivity and skill as songwriters and recording artists.
‘Waiting on my Turn’ their newest single is set to be released in March.

Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will.

In late 2016 Smith & Jones finished recording their debut album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz in Sydney. This album’s first three singles, ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and also charted in Tasmania over four weeks.

2018 saw Smith & Jones finish work on their highly anticipated second album, ‘Something Worth Learning’, which they recorded at Love Hz Studios and Linear Recording and will be released in March and toured for the remainder of 2019. Though ‘Something Worth Learning’ is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from Smith & Jones, their new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Nowhere does this desire for individuality shine brighter then on their newly released second album ‘Something Worth Learning’ which is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from them This new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

Smith & Jones’ first album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, released in 2017, was extremely well received with it’s first three singles; ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to
number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and received airplay around the country.

Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.

“They’ve taken the path of making music that they want to hear themselves, whether it’s the catchy pop sounds as heard on the first single SecondHand Heart or Running from Something. A slice of fun with a bit of walking bass and finger snapping, singing a love letter to the “Boss” which was written after seeing him in concert: Last Night I saw Jesus. Then there’s beautiful piano ballads ”One Last Time” and “In The Middle of the Night” which could have easily echoed out around Laurel Canyon in the early ’70s.” – Pat Coomey

Gretta Ziller is an Americana Folk Singer/Songwriter with an ever-growing list of musical accolades. Her name may have more meaning at this stage in her career to the Australian Country Music scene, having recently been a finalist in the Alt-Country Album of the year category of the 2018 Golden Guitars, but just like Lucinda Williams she is as much folk/blues/country singer-songwriter as Lucinda and her placing in the finals of the “Americana” category of the 2016 Unsigned Only & a semi-finalist in the 2017 International song writing competition cemented that.
Gretta was a 2015 Toyota Star Maker grand finalist and has also been involved in the Telstra Road to Discovery competition gaining a spot in the 2013 grand final, that same year she was the TSA/APRA New Songwriter of the year. With vocals that range from sweet folk to gritty blues you’d never know Gretta started off her career as a Classical singer, and song writing idols like Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale and Paul Kelly, Gretta is finding a multitude of welcoming arms for her blend of Country Folk & Americana music.
In 2017 Gretta has played alongside the likes of Shane Nicholson, Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart, Brad Butcher, Paddy McHugh & Lachlan Bryan just to name a few. Gretta released her debut album September 1 through Social Family Records.

Dave-Wells-Press-300

There are certain writers who command moving melodies and lyrics in equal measure. Dave Wells is one of those artists. The gifted musician has quickly garnered a word-of-mouth reputation as one of the Hunter’s finest songwriters and performers; a master craftsman whose songs creep up on you and cut deep.

Spaciously intense and progressive, his emotionally and sonically diverse debut record exemplifies Wells’ indie folk and alt-rock influences. Across the album, the Hunter Valley songwriter examines social realism through an abstract lens. He sets his sights on the biggest of themes: our inclinations for lust and freedom, moral boundaries, human desire, self-preservation, the cause and effects of love, jealousy and loss.
“This album taps into perspectives on life and society,” Wells says. “Alongside love and hurt, I reflected on a lot of things happening in the world and its effect on each of us.”

Dave embraces his audience through passionate performances, moving them with a voice that recalls the likes of Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke and Neil Finn. His spirit on stage engages and captivates, and after several sell out shows since the album’s release, Dave continues to deliver uniquely intimate and memorable performances across the nation and abroad.

“Dave Wells has mastered the honest and beautiful. His songs soar, and his performances soothe.” – KIM CHURCHILL

“Dave Wells is a rare talent. A composer of thoughtful and stirring melodic folk-rock tunes, with a voice to match.” – BEN SALTER
