Reviews

Gigs

“If Woodford is too far away for you, or a little too folk heavy for your liking, then Falls Festival Marion Bay is a perfect alternative which still gives you a lot of similar experiences yet has a personality and style all of it’s own” – Part 1 of KTBell’s Falls Festival review. Review here

“Traveller & Fortune choose the right instrumentation for the song. Even if only six notes are played on a xylophone or the harmonica only makes a single appearance across the entire set, their inclusion on the songs is perfectly placed makes dragging them all the way to Sydney worthwhile. The way Traveller & Fortune layer their songs is just masterful”Gareth Hugh Evans reviews Traveller & Fortune at FBi Social in Sydney. Review here

“Raglan Road” – Glen Hansard and Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Glen Hansard is in the country at the moment, supporting Eddie Vedder and performing his own shows so I thought it might be nice to share this video of he and The Frames bandmate Colm Mac Con Iomaire performing the Irish classic “Raglan Road”.

Review: Traveller & Fortune, FBi Social, Sydney

Traveller & Fortune with Emma Davis, Huckleberry Hastings
FBi Social, Sydney, NSW
Thursday 30th January, 2014

Once again I found myself at the end of a Traveller & Fortune at FBi Social in Kings Cross, as the band packed up and faithful congratulated them on their show, almost apologising for the tiny crowd that had shown up that night. The Sydney live scene is a fickle thing and it boggles my mind that a band as good as Traveller & Fortune, with strong supports from Huckleberry Hastings and Emma Davis, will play to about 30 people on a Thursday night especially when they can easily fill rooms in Melbourne and their native Adelaide. But all I can think is that those that weren’t there missed out on a another amazing show.

Huckleberry Hastings has become a fixture on the live scene in recent months, popping up at so many gigs around the city he’s hard to miss. And there’s a reason Hastings is everywhere – his powerful voice and heart wrenching songs are captivating. I feel like we’re just scraping the surface of Huckleberry Hastings talent and it will be really interesting to watch him grow as an artist. If I had one word of advice for Huck, it’s that he explores the major keys a little more. The final song he played in his set, a newer track that tread the familiar theme of heartbreak, was a welcome respite due to its major chords and “happier” tone. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Huckleberry Hastings.

It’s so good to catch Emma Davis again. I didn’t manage to catch her recent tour with Brian Campeau but her recently released track “Stand Tall” was one of my favourite tracks of last year and gets a regular, almost daily spin on my iPod months after it was released. Her on stage presence is delightful, self-deprecating between songs and raw and honest during. In the hands of most solo singer-songwriters the electric guitar can be an unwieldy tool but in Emma Davis’ hands it becomes beautiful, understated and the perfect accompaniment to her tumbling folk songs. Most of Davis’ set was drawn from her 2010 self titled album, with the inclusion of “Stand Tall” and her cover of Sugar Ray’s “Every Morning”, and I’m really excited to see what she’s got in store for the rest of 2014.

I think there are two things that make Traveller & Fortune a pretty special band. Firstly the fact that it’s made up of a collection of singer-songwriters – Tom West, Todd Sibbin and Kaurna Cronin are just three of the band’s members whose solo projects Timber and Steel has covered – yet it seems to be a group without egos. Their sound just gels with each member adding to the whole, not show boating or over reaching.

Which brings me to the second reason I like Traveller & Fortune – the fact that they’re just such talented musicians. Among the band’s five members I think I counted at least nine different instruments, and that’s before you call out the different vocalists. But rather than being showy – rather than going through instrumental acrobatics in an effort to show off how good they are – Traveller & Fortune choose the right instrumentation for the song. Even if only six notes are played on a xylophone or the harmonica only makes a single appearance across the entire set, their inclusion on the songs is perfectly placed makes dragging them all the way to Sydney worthwhile. The way Traveller & Fortune layer their songs is just masterful.

Traveller & Fortune were launching their new EP I Am Only Snow and I have to say I really enjoyed hearing the tracks from it live. Probably my favourite track from the night is the single “Little Plastic People”, although the entire set was a joy and I just hope they keep coming back to Sydney.

And while this is the second time I’ve seen Traveller & Fortune play to a small Sydney crowd I hope this doesn’t discourage them for giving the city another chance. This band has an amazing sound and I really look forward to seeing how much they’ve grown next time they venture east.

“The Chemical Worker’s Song” – Great Big Sea

The struggle-of-the-worker genre of folk song is no where near as prevalent as it once was in our world of OH&S, high paid mining gigs and award wages. But there’s some great tracks out their still being recorded by contemporary artists like this version of “The Chemical Worker’s Song” by Ron Angel (also known at “Process Man”) performed here by Canadian folk-rockers Great Big Sea

Traveller & Fortune Release Video for “Letter To Japan”

After departing to Canada for a whirlwind string of shows earlier in the year, Adelaide’s Traveller & Fortune have been back in the thick of the action of late playing some great support slots and releasing this video for “Letter To Japan”. The track was on Traveller & Fortune‘s self-titled EP which was released late in 2010.

The video was shot in the foothills above Adelaide and was produced by Kieran Ellis-Jones– of Your Take Sessions/6 on the St fame.

Traveller & Fortune Launching New Release This Sunday 7/8/11 at The Jade Monkey, Adelaide

Image courtesy of Traveller & Fortune

Who?: Traveller & Fortune supported by Ryan Meeking
What?: Launching a new 5 track release
Where?: The Jade Monkey, Twin St, Adelaide
When?: 7:00-10:30pm this Sunday 7/8/11
How Much?: $15 on the door, including CD and goodies

Regular Timber & Steel readers have probably seen the name Traveller & Fortune kicking around our regular online stomping grounds at some point. There’s no denying it- we’ve got high hopes for Tom & Jayne West (no relation, as far as I know…), both in their solo endeavours and with their talented band of Adelaide gals. We’ve seen their performances and songwriting grow over the years to the point to where they are now consistently putting on the greatest folk-pop shows in South Australia.

We heard a whisper a while ago that Tom West would be releasing his debut solo album later in the year, so we were very pleasantly surprised to learn that the full team will be putting out a new collection of songs that were recorded in a live session format at Adelaide’s Chapel Studios (and if you’ve ever seen T&F live, you’d know that this won’t get in the way of quality at all). Tom West himself has said to “expect lots of moody instrumentals and lush harmonies”, which has got us eagerly anticipating the back-up to their debut self titled release (follow this link for our review).  The release will only be available at the launch, but if you can’t be there on the night (interstate, committed elsewhere, working, etc), shoot a quick email to travellerandfortune@gmail.com to get a copy sent to you.

The launch begins at 7:00pm on Sunday night and should be wrapped up by 10:30pm, in consideration of the working folks. All attendees will receive a copy of the record and some other goodies upon entry which will cost you $15 on the door; very thrifty considering that Melbourne’s Ryan Meeking is making the trip all the way over to play support on the night. The show will be the last full-band event for a while due to some overseas departures of members, but Tom West (whom recently opened for the Panics) and Jayne West will remain out there gigging and playing your favourite Traveller & Fortune songs. As per usual, we’ll keep you up to date.
