The PERTH BLUES CLUB presents
Turning Left + Scarlet's Way
Turning Left | 7.30pm
Turning Left is a 3-piece blues/rock outfit from Perth WA, moulded from a diversity of backgrounds. Gordon German (guitar/vocals) has played in blues-based original and cover bands since the 1970’s, including Coldfront, Mirror Imij and the Woodstock Revival (Jimi Hendrix Experience). He is, naturally, left handed, and doesn’t like cauliflower. Steve Prescott (bass/vocals) has been a founding member in several of Perth’s big cover bands, such as Slim Jim and the Fatts, Fireball, and Croz and the Allstars. He is, naturally, also left handed and doesn’t like corriander. Dave Knox (drums) considers himself a galactic traveller and follower of Blue moons. He has made various loud noises with heavy rock outfits such as Subtruck, Mystic Twist and Volcanics. He is, rather unnaturally, right-handed.
Scarlet's Way | 8.45pm
Scarlet's Way have already travelled a long way to carve out their name. From Western Australia to East Nashville, and many stops along the way, they have done some miles recently. But given their hunger to perform, this journey has a long way to go!
The super-smooth duo is made up of the talented Katey Gabel (Lead Vocals) and highly regarded Shayne Savic (Guitar). Their trademark southern, roots-inspired brand of music brings lashings of Americana, accompanied by polished overtones synonymous with modern day Nashville.
Since releasing their first single No Fire, No Flames which reached #7 on the iTunes Country Charts in 2017, they have taken their music to the world. They released their second single Simple Life in 2018, accompanied by their debut music video. This video attracted over 30,000 views in just the first week and was quickly added to Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (CMC) demonstrating the duo’s growing popularity. This was followed by their third single “Let the Devil In”, this seductive track went onto receive impressive radio support, staying in the AMRAP top 10 for two straight weeks.
While the online and television attention is great, like all seasoned musicians, these guys do their best work live on stage. The act has been invited to play on multiple stages at Tamworth Country Music Festival and obviously made an impression. These performances opened doors to Nashville's Americana Fest and the Gympie Music Muster. Highlights of the duo’s performances over the last 18 months include performing at the world-renowned Bluebird Café and completing a national tour performing at theatres and venues throughout New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. They also took out the Emerging Artist Showcase and performed on Main Stage in their first year at the Gympie Music Muster in 2018. They were then promptly invited back with their band to be a part of a massive line-up in August 2019. The band’s first single since their debut EP release, “Move Your Body (Woah Oh Oh)” is a catchy, honky tonk style tune that is a tip of the hat to the Duo’s time in Nashville. The track is making waves, debuting at #9 on the iTunes Country Charts, with the corresponding music video being selected as part of WAM Festival’s ‘Mini Music Video Festival’ at the Rooftop Cinemas. If this is what Scarlet's Way can accomplish in such a short amount of time, what will the future bring! Aren't you curious to see what all the fuss is about? Shaun Street- Bass, Kim Siragusa- Keyboard and Mike Hagerty- Drums make up the rest of the band.
