The Porch Sessions & Love Police Present
The Porch Sessions || Julien Baker
Adelaide's favourite travelling backyard festival The Porch Sessions is back for Season 4, exploring the most glorious of porches in all the land. With this show featuring Julien Baker - all the way from the US of A, and the wonderful Jed Appleton and Kat Edwards from down below in Tasmania. What a vibe.
We transform suburban gardens for afternoons right across the summertime, filling them with live music, local food and wine, Persian rugs and bunting. This little series exists in the warmer months, where good friends sprawl out on the lawn for an afternoon, basking in the sublime counterpoint of all things Adelaide; its music, its produce, its people and its beautiful surroundings.
Our second show of the season, is to take place in the most idyllic of backyards, located in Hawthorn, with three damn tasty acts, among the most tasty in all of porch history.
Headlining this delicious show is USA's Julien Baker:
"Today is a special day. Love Police Touring and Spunk Records are thrilled to announce the first ever Australian shows for U.S singer-songwriter Julien Baker.
Baker hails from Memphis, Tennessee and last December quietly released one of the most beautiful and stunning albums of 2015. Her debut record 'Sprained Ankle' - a collection of very personal and heartfelt songs immediately became a classic and had music fans and critics-alike the world over gushing.
Julien Baker's music and lyrics speak to all our nagging insecurities, making her songs instantly relatable. Stylistically the music recalls the high points of 90's indie rock with a deeper strain of classic-country song writing. These intensely intimate recordings will break your heart with their ethereal beauty and showcase an extraordinary poise, well beyond her 20 years of age.
Come November, Australian audiences will be able to hear these genuinely deep and surprisingly dark stories come to life. When Julien takes to the stage with just her ragged-edged voice and ringing telecaster, the results are usually mesmerizing. She's been wowing audiences across North America this year with this magical combination and even visited the U.K and Europe for the first time. She's supported bands like The National, Band Of Horses, Frightened Rabbit and her festival resume now includes Austin City Limits, Primavera Sound and the prestigious Newport Folk Festival, where she stole the show.
Rolling Stone said...
"Baker played, as she typically does, by herself, proving that the most powerful performances at Newport can still come from a solitary artist."
If that wasn't enough, we've snagged the two biggest dreamboats in the entirety of Tasmania; lord of the songwriting and of the banter - Jed Appleton, and the most swoonworthy vocal pipes you've ever laid your cochlea's on: Kat Edwards, ready to send you into a little Sunday Porch Trance
