For over a decade Jack Carty has been one of the country’s best-kept secrets, releasing albums to critical acclaim and touring both at home and abroad. His latest single ‘Boab (Time Is A River)’ was written in the Kimberly region in WA and reflects on shared experiences over the passage of time.
“There is a Boab Tree there that gets called ‘The Prison Tree’ & people have carved their names all over it, over time,” says Jack, speaking on the origin of the song.
“I found my wife’s name carved into one of the branches & even though I knew she didn’t do it, it got me thinking about her, and distance, and how time is like a distance all its own, separating us from things that happened right where we are standing, long ago.” Check it out above.
‘Boab’ captures Carty at his swaying, crooning best, with his vocals floating smoothly over a slice of folky yet quirky soft-rock. Channeling the storytelling tropes of some of the best in the singer/songwriter business, whilst sounding distinctly ‘Australian’, this is the perfect addition to any easy-listening playlist you might have.
