A fast, finger-picking folk blues troubadour, independent artist Jez Mead has toured the country playing the festival circuit and supporting the likes of Midnight Oil, Angus and Julia Stone and the Waifs.
He offers an energetic essence to his live performances as he takes his audience on a musical journey through a landscape of sound with a distinct Australian style and sense of place.
Described as the emerging heir to the title of 'poet to the people', musician Jimmy Dowling's enigmatic story telling through song is both charismatic and simple. Dowling lays gentle acoustic guitar harmonies behind his raw poetic tone to set an authentic scene that engages his listeners' attention with emotive words to paint the image of his stories.
Jeff Lang described Dowling has having "a lot of stories to tell and he tells them his own way - with strong words and a steady hand."
Mead is joined on stage by Paul Brewer on bass guitar and Chris Jones on percussion, the pair are the remnants of popular Byron Bay band Boneyard, which folded a few years back.
You know the drill, BYO everything for a cozy Saturday arvo session in the acoustic wonder of the Oddfellows Hall. Book a ticket now, and grab your picnic basket!
