Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have been taking their gloriously rough ‘n’ tumble music out into the world and sharing their magic around.
Not surprising when you consider that their 2012 album, “Wiley Ways” was voted Best Blues Album at the Australia Blues Awards ; the Jeff Lang produced “Do Tell” spent THREE MONTHS at No.1 in the Australian Blues & Roots charts; they were 2015 semi-finalists representing Australia in the International Blues Challenge and Cara was awarded Female Blues Vocalist of the Year in 2015 at the Australian Blues Awards.
Yes, they’re as bluesy and ballsy as can be; but it’s much bigger and more widely appealing than that – and we have faith that this extraordinary thing is going to make a big breakthrough and trample down those boundaries.
Remember how Seasick Steve won mainstream appeal, as much from the media attention and endorsement as the music?
Hold on to your hats…!
This pair create similar reverberations…
When leading UK roots music website Spiral Earth said that they “pack more energy, emotion and sheer musical exuberance into one song than most manage in a whole career,” the truth came out.
In recent times this barnstorming duo have circled the globe as they continue to branch out and hit new territories , blowing through and leaving entire communities awestruck, as if a tornado just turned their whole world upside down.
The latest album, 2016’s After The Rain, is destined to keep their faithful fanbase happy while winning more international attention from a wider circle.
