JEFF MARTIN (THE TEA PARTY) – Australian Tour 2011

Acoustic and Solo

JEFF MARTIN (The Tea Party) returns to the intimate solo format this October, after a year of high praise with the formation of a new band 777 that stormed across Australia in May and The Ground Cries Out Album, to a sell out run of shows with the resurgence of The Tea Party in Canada, and to the magic of the collaboration with Terepai Richmond last month; one would think Jeff Martin should need a nice cup of chai tea and a good lie down…but rock & roll never rests ladies & gents, and nor does Jeff Martin.

“they produced a wall of sound Spector would be proud of” DRUM SYDNEY

“The Ground Cries Out is actually a sensational album, chock-full of very big, very strong world-music influenced rock songs.” – BEAT MAGAZINE

“Wow! This is the best thing Jeff Martin has done in the last four years or so…” – dB MAGAZINE

“Martin has stepped up with his most exciting album since his time in The Tea Party – no mean feat.” – 4 Stars – TIME OFF

Jeff will be performing the best of The Tea Party plus an array of his solo offerings and a few newly found treasures from the 777 which brings back a lot of what The Tea Party made so special… the blues, the mystique, the Indian and Middle Eastern influences – in a nutshell: the magic!

“…His voice is monstrous, his guitar and razor-sharp instrument of aural death, cutting you down in swathes” Inpress
