Adrian Whitehead & Jethro Pickett Double Album Launch
Minerva's Books, 121 Sturt St , Ballarat, Vic
Melbourne singer/songwriters Adrian Whitehead & Jethro Pickett are thrilled to announce a joint tour that will see them traverse states and continents. Having both just finished albums with multiple ARIA award winning producer Shane O’Mara, these two exceptional talents are taking their new records on the road. Jethro and Adrian will be joining each other on stage, sharing songs and stories, backed by a full band of long time collaborators
Adrian Whitehead’s stunning songwriting lays bare the human condition, and shines a light into the dark corners of our inner worlds. Channelling the likes of George Harrison, Elliott Smith, and Harry Nilsson, his new album Nerd From The Suburbs manages a unique sound that reflects his extensive musical experiences. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Adrian has performed with some of Australia’s best know artists, including The Badloves, Pollyanna, Even, Abby Dobson, and Liz Stringer.
Jethro Pickett is releasing his sophomore record France, out now through Behind The Beat Records, a boutique Melbourne label operated by former Phill Calvert. Having played European dates late last year, including Electric Picnic in Ireland, Jethro is taking his music around Australia for the first time in several years. His music is colourful and catchy, with a psychedelic pop twist, and a live show that never fails to enthral.
