Eskimo Joe and Camerata

Another great gig for Brisbane Festival – My first time working with Eskimo Joe and ably accompanied by Brisbane’s own Camerata.  What a great rocking concert!

Iconic indie rock band Eskimo Joe rocks to the full backing of Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra. Over the past 21 years, Eskimo Joe has had its music released to great acclaim in the US, Canada, Europe and Korea.

With six studio albums and sales exceeding 750,000 in Australia alone, the band has seen three of its albums debut at Number 1 on the ARIA charts and has racked up an impressive 35 ARIA nominations.

Conducted by Vanessa Scammell, Eskimo Joe and Camerata will perform the band’s greatest hits, including “From the Sea”, “Black Fingernails, Red Wine” and “Foreign Land”.

Megan Washington has a voice that dances with, wraps around, skates across and creates instant melodies. The West Australian

★★★★½ – Don’t be on the wrong side of the history being made at these shows. The Sydney Morning Herald

With her feet once firmly rooted in jazz, Megan Washington burst onto the Australian music scene in 2008 with a unique and evolving approach to indie-pop and alternative rock.

The two-time ARIA Award-winner and multi-platinum selling artist and her band will join Queensland Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Foreman, performing her forthcoming album in full and a selection of favorites from her previous three.

Don’t miss one of the defining Australian female singers of our age in this magnificent orchestral collaboration.

It was great to work with Megan again after so many years providing the Orchestra Submix.  I remember recording a song for Australia Post that Megan sang on while she was still at school.  She was also a guest vocalist on the Blackwood CD that I recorded, with a beautifully engaging performance of Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.
