SOMETHING ELSE PRESENTS; JO MEARES

Venue
Blue Smoke
Time
08:30 pm
Our Wednesday evening ‘Something Else’ session specializes in all that is experimental, extra ordinary and unpredictable. From free jazz to bebop to psychedelic jangle pop, from post punk garage folk to traveling singer songwriters; we open the stage to musicians with a beatniks flare for the unorthodox.
Something Else evenings have made Blue Smoke a regular haunt for music enthusiasts far and wide. Each week we present to you music that is fresh, free style and infinitely interesting.

On Thursday 15th December our feature artist is Jo Meares.

Jo Meares has etched a beautifully rich and unique mark in the Australian music landscape. A wonderful writer whose music gives wings to an intimate and sometimes dark poetry, rendered in the talk/sung style of Leonard Cohen. He carefully draws you into his world and then carries you along, to within its beguiling fringe.

Currently touring his single ‘Lone Gun’ from his 4th studio album this will be Jo’s first visit to New Zealand.

 

… ‘King Of The Crystal Mountain’ is an album I now consider one of the finest Australian singer songwriter albums of the past decade and in fact it would be better to say that it’s a world class album created by an Australian.
 I’ve subsequently heard all Jo’s previous albums and admire them too.
 Not only are the albums magnificent, he is a truly exceptional live performer who deserves to be much better known than he currently is”

Stuart Coupe, writer, manager Laughing Outlaw records, DJ 2FBI and 2SER
