The Vanguard presents
Jack R. Reilly (SOLD OUT)
Sydney singer-songwriter Jack R. Reilly has released his long-awaited debut album, Middle Everything, out today on Lost Boy Records. The album was produced by Jonno Tooke from Cry Club.
To celebrate the release of Middle Everything, Jack R. Reilly will be playing two shows at the Vanguard in Sydney on the 10th of November. Proving his versatility and dynamics as an artist, The first show in the early evening will be an intimate solo performance, and the second show later on will be a full band experience.
Jack R. Reilly explains the theme behind Middle Everything, "Middle Everything is me acknowledging the feelings and thoughts that come up while practicing meditation. During the writing process I was living alone in Kings Cross and spending a huge amount of time either meditating, or going for really long walks into and around the city. I’d spend almost every Saturday and Sunday walking around with a notebook, finding little places to write. At night I’d come home and try to work shop those into songs. I received a lot of help from my long time producer and studio collaborator, Jonno Tooke (from cry club) to bring these songs out of my notebook, and the extreme talent of my live band to bring these songs to life."
In April, Jack R. Reilly won the triple j Unearthed NIDA music video competition. They produced the video for lead single, Blood, which premiered on Rage over the weekend.
Jack explains what Blood is about,"Blood is also a meditation of frustration. Of feeling as though I’m just working all the time. Where it differs from Who Can Say is that I’m more leaning in to it, throwing myself into the flood. Being honest with myself is a really liberating thing, and I’m feeling the frustration eases and I can remind myself that the work is the actual reward."
He adds, "We wanted to explore the concept that, although it’s long and arduous, putting in work is a reward in itself. It also does a lot to capture my non-musical influences such as Dr Who, Batman and The Mighty Boosh."about the video.
