In June of last year, Emma Russack released the critically acclaimed album ‘In A New State’ through good ol’ Spunk! Records. It topped many ‘Best of 2016′ lists and got a lot of people talking. Emma also played some great shows to promote said record – making folk laugh and cry all around the countryside. Since playing all these shows, Emma’s guitar playing skills have really improved and her vocal melodies have become more intricate and complex. In fact, this summer she has spent her time in sunny NSW writing new songs that are a lot better than anything else she has written thus far. They’re just jolly-er and more contemplative and relatable. ANYWAY, Emma will be playing at the Yarra on the 31st of March with a band comprising of Liam Halliwell on bass and Dylan Young on drums – an unstoppable team or so to speak. Support from the wonderful Way Dynamic and Spit. What a lovely crew! You’d be mad to miss this show. $10 on door.
