Touring their latest album Do Tell Hat Fitz & Cara will be journeying around Australia throughout November, and stopping off on the Gold Coast this weekend to play at the Basement.
The Irish songstress and her Queensland blues-bound husband were last playing in Australia for the Byron Bay Bluesfest earlier this year, and shared the story of how their romantic and musical partnership started.
However regardless of how they started, one thing is for sure, they definitely aren’t finished. Having recorded the latest album with Jeff Lang, who also played bass on the Do Tell, the duo is excited to lave the bush behind and fully reveal their latest collaboration to Australia. Having performed a few of the tracks at Bluesfest in April, the duo said they received a positive response to the new material and were excited to complete the album.
You can see them performing Shakedown in this wonderful clip:
This is the third album Hat Fitz & Cara have released together and it contains the same magical equation as its predecessors.
Hat Fitz’s gravelly voice and passionate guitar playing, melded with Cara’s powerful vocals and multi-instrumental mastery are the formula for a raunchy blues album; and that is exactly what Do Tell is.
You can, and should, purchase tickets here for a musical kick in the pants, and isn’t that what we’re all searching for?
