The Basement, NSW
This event has passed and sales are now closed
Recorded in Chigago with Jay Bennett, members of Wilco and Al Perkins, Sherry Rich is launching her new album Dakota Avenue.
The Basement is thrilled to be hosting the official Sydney launch for Sherry Rich's 'lost album' DAKOTA AVENUE recorded in a Chicago loft with the late Jay Bennett, members of Wilco and legendary steel player Al Perkins.
Critics are already calling it "An instant roots-pop classic" "One of the best Australian albums this year" and "A magnificent return".
Joining Sherry onstage on this night are members of 'the New Folk Heroes' including Grammy and Oscar nominated guitarist Rick Plant.
Sherry Rich has been a formidable part of the Australian Music Scene since her days as lead singer/songwriter of the infamous all girl garage rock band 'Girl Monstar.'
Her singing style and attitude has been compared to Christine McVie, Joan Jett, Bonnie Raitt and Peggy Lee and her songs from an eclectic range of projects - The Rich Family, The Grapes, The Grievous Angels and The Mudcakes - have been internationally released on vinyl and CD, used in TV and movie soundtracks and recorded by major artists in Australia and the US.
Sherry lived and worked as a songwriter in Nashville from 1998 to 2008 and is now based in Melbourne.
"Good songs keep. If they're made right they'll see your kids grow and mourn the passing of old friends. The ten songs on DAKOTA AVENUE have done both without leaving a shoebox under Sherry Rich's bed. After ten years, it's time they met the big old world they were meant for." - Michael Dwyer (Rolling Stone)
