Album Review : KIRK FLETCHER – HOLD ON

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

KIRK FLETCHER – HOLD ON

Another new name to me from the big wide world of the blues, and another cracking example of the quality of blues guitarists out there today – with a handful of solo albums behind him, as well as three years in The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Kirk Fletcher has one of the more soulful voices, twinned with a guitar style that brings to mind the likes of Carlos Santana, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, Gary Clarke Jr and Eric Gales to name just a few!

Augie March announce ‘On The Quiet’ 10 year anniversary tour

In 2009, when it couldn’t get any bigger or louder, Augie March pared back and skirted the east coast with their ‘On The Quiet’ tour. A loose and informal approach to their acclaimed repertoire, this largely acoustic show was a huge hit with Augie fans, purist and tourist alike.

Photographer : Ben Hosking – www.hoskingindustries.com.au

I'm ashamed to admit it, but this was actually the first time I'd seen The Tea Party live. I'd been into their music since the 1990s and had seen one of Jeff Martin's incredible solo shows way back in 2010 at Sydney's The Basement. But I'd never been able to see The Tea Party.

Tonight, I was in for a real treat.

Photographer : Ben Hosking

It might have been a chilly, wet Sunday night outside, but within the cosy confines of the recently-rebranded Newcastle Hotel, piping hot modern metal was cooking up a storm. While we missed local opening act The Wandering, Taree progressive metal four-piece Diamond Construct continued their evolution from awkward teens to stage-pounding purveyors of dissonant chords and brutal breakdowns. Their latest release is garnering them some deserved attention and tonight’s almost-cruelly short 25-minute support slot shows they can impress even on a tight timeline.
