KEEPING NORTH 12-7-23
I am very excited to let you know about a new project for me -- a band called KEEPING NORTH. Here is a short spiel from the band's web site, letting you know what it's all about...
'Think Robert Plant & Alison Krauss meets The Delines with Joe Tex standing in the corner, and you will have some idea about the new music of Keeping North. A hypnotic blend of contemporary folk, country soul and Americana -- but decidedly Australian.
The band’s new songs are from the pen of highly regarded writer Steve Tyson, about whom respected music critic Noel Mengel (Courier Mail / Loudmouth) previously had this to say…these are songs that are built to last. And Ian Dearden (Trad & Now) added …a master songwriter.
Featuring the stunning vocals and sweet bass of Jodi Murtha, the fine guitar lines of Ian ‘Sal’ Shawsmith, the clever rhythms of Dave ‘Mash’ Parnell, the colours of Jeff Spencer’s pedal steel and dobro, and Steve’s contributions on guitar, mandolin and banjo, Keeping North brings together some experienced heads and fresh thinking in a set of classic new songs.
The band will be soon begin recording a series of singles, culminating in an album release down the track a bit. And of course, hitting the stage live to deliver the new tunes, plus an interesting twist on a selection of covers, is what it’s all about…'
