Hat Fitz & Cara’s musical style is a unique combination of folk, roots and gospel blues with old time flavourings reminiscent of a time once forgotten.

Hat Fitz is a “veteran” wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.

Cara draws on her soul background (she’s toured Europe and the United States with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corinne Bailey-Rae), and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’. She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.

Launching their fourth album ‘After The Rain’ this pair will take you on a musical journey with ample, boisterous highs, and longing, bluesy lows - Hat Fitz & Cara put on a show that is guaranteed to energize and invigorate.

“Hat Fitz and Cara have the songs, the musical ability, the drive and the self belief to offer something refreshingly vibrant and new.” - Get Ready To Rock, Pete Feenstra

"After The Rain shows this couple at the peak of their creative powers—soaring soul vocals, visceral blues guitar, unexpected quiet, and sudden changes in feel and tempo. A masterful blend of roar and nuance." - Rhythms Magazine (Aus)
