Following the release of 4 on Monday, we’ve just got word of the smooth acts warming up the stages in Sydney and Melbourne for the mighty Bamboos album launch shows.
From the press release:
Sydney-siders will be treated to the almighty Ray Mann Three. Their debut self-titled album, released in 2008, was recorded in just three days and blurs the lines between soul, jazz and hip-hop, with a warmth and intimate sound.
More recently, the Ray Mann Three opened for the likes of Al Green and Tori Amos. They’re well and truly Australia’s troubadours of original soul music.
Melbournians will have the pleasure of listening to Electric Empire, the soulful three piece that are one of the cities best kept secrets. Having recently released their debut album through their own label, Electric Empire have been earning rave reviews all across Melbourne and have their sights set on the world.
From the opening track of their album the influences of Curtis Mayfield, Al Green and Stevie Wonder are apparent, with their distinctive modern twist and flavour.
