Scottish born singer-songwriter, Millar Jukes, has brought his unique take on Americana music to Australia and, together with his new band, The Bandits, has been sharing his bittersweet blend of upbeat love songs and darker, more intense musical stories with audiences across Melbourne throughout this year.
Inspired by Ray Lamontagne, Millar started writing heartfelt songs that he performed around his hometown of Wishaw, just outside of Glasgow, developing his distinctly gritty vocal style, before migrating to Melbourne in 2011. He brings his unique style to the Yarra stage for a rare solo show.
Joshua Deeble is the the frontman and songwriter for local legends The Wild Comforts. Since 2011 they have been making toes tap and tears well, filling ears around Australia with a unique brand of country music that is soulful, raw, and melodic. We here at the Yarra can’t wait to see Joshua in stripped back solo mode, where his striking lyricism and melodies can truly shine.
