Fol­low­ing his band Jet’s suc­cess­ful re­turn to per­form­ing as guests of Bruce Spring­steen on his re­cent Aus­tralian jaunt, singer Nic Cester is tak­ing a low-key ap­proach to his im­pend­ing solo ca­reer. Cester, who spends much of his time these days in Como, Italy, is do­ing a cou­ple of Aus­tralian shows next month ahead of the re­lease of his de­but solo al­bum later this year. The co-au­thor of Are You Gonna Be My Girl? and other Jet favourites will be joined by his new all-Ital­ian band the Mi­lano Elet­trica, which con­sists of two drum­mers, bass, gui­tar, key­boards and a horn sec­tion, the last of which is a re­flec­tion of the rocker’s lean to­wards soul mu­sic on the new al­bum. He’s play­ing his na­tive Melbourne’s in­ti­mate The Toff in Town on April 19 and 20, while he’ll hold court at the slightly more spa­cious The Base­ment in Syd­ney on April 21.
