Presented by Sarah Howells (Roots N’ All)

Kick back with a cold beer every Sunday, as Triffid Roots presented by Sarah Howells (Roots N’ All) takes over the venue and beer garden to bring you the best of Brisbane, and Australia’s blues, roots, folk, contemporary jazz, soul, reggae and world music.

Kiara Jack

Catch Kiara Jack in solo mode as part of Triffid Roots. She normally plays with her band, Kiara Jack & The Jills, an original world folk roots band hailing from the Gold Coast. Their live performances echo the sounds of ‘world’ meets ‘contemporary’ with a dash of rhythmic improvisation, making each show a unique journey in itself. At the centre of their sound is the eclectic-edged voice of Kiara Jack, which delivers vivid storytelling into the passionate sound of experimental instrumental techniques.

Jack Carty

Time flies, and increasingly, so does Jack Carty. It may have been four years since his debut EP, Wine & Consequence, and his unassuming arrival on the Australian music scene, but that’s certainly not time misspent. Two full-length albums—2011’s One Thousand Origami Birds and 2012’s Break Your Own Heart—quickly followed. As did a collaborative EP with Sydney-based man-of-mystery, Casual Psychotic, titled The Predictable Crisis Of Modern Life, showcasing a darker and more experimental side to Carty’s writing (away from his indie-folk roots). Beyond the record releases and national and international touring (sometimes with the likes of Josh Pyke, Katie Noonan, Justin Townes Earle, Ingrid Michaelson and Joshua Radin), festivals ensued, songs were added to soundtracks, the critical acclaim piled up (including top five accolades in the APRA Professional Development Awards), showcases were performed (at SXSW and Canadian Music Week) and a MusicOz award was added to Jack’s resume.

Now, following three solid years of travel, touring and no fixed address, Carty has finished a new album: Esk. A record grounded in ideas of process and time, whilst sounding like an artist who knows exactly what he wants.
