Hat Fitz & Cara have recently finished recording their new album "Wiley Ways" which has had the pleasure of being engineered and produced by the highly regarded Jeff Lang. The process of this has been up to date one of the most enjoyable experiences either of them have had in making an album, what with banging bed pans, packing Cigarette box Pedals into old leather glad bags for that sought after sound.
It has been a shared passion for their music that has moulded this album lovingly track by track. Now they want to share this personal experience of their scrawls and ramblings they have created late into the many early hours from their shed in the bush and long dark nights on the road with the rest of the world. This dynamic duo is a unique combination that have skilfully combined their music of hill style country blues with old time folk, which has seen them become firm favourites on the international festival circuit. Their material is original yet crosses the boundaries as if written from a time once forgotten.
"With Wiley Ways, Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have crafted as genuine a blues record as you can hope to find in this day and age - simple, powerful, full of the inherent realism we've come to expect from these two, a stellar effort" - Samuel J. Fell (Rhythms/Rolling Stone)
"Hat Fitz and Cara make beautiful, raw, exciting music that never fails to grab me" - Jeff Lang, Australia
"They pack more energy, emotion and sheer musical exuberance into one song than most manage in a whole career" - Spiral Earth, UK
Wiley Ways will be released October 1st 2012 and Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson will be touring nationally to support the release.
Special guest for their Katoomba show will be Chris Gillespie.
Chris Gillespie is a highly innovative and original independent artist. His songs are beautiful, bursting with observational yearning.
"A fingerpicking', harmonica-playing troubadour... 'Sydney's answer to Bob Dylan" (Dave Regos - FBi Radio)
Gillespie is renowned by his audience and peers for his song writing craft, especially his lyrics.
"Chris Gillespie is definitely one of those timeless song smiths" - Joe Gould, (The Crooked Fiddle Band).
Chris has been a regular feature on the Australian music scene since 2006, previously releasing two EPs: 'The Road to Tamworth' in 2006 and 'Free to Roam' in 2008. Since then, after three years of touring and performing (with band 'The Wandering Hands') comes his first full-length album, "Unnatural Light".
