Col­lec­tive con­nect with coun­try

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Time Out -

Blue Child Col­lec­tive are gear­ing up for a 13-date na­tional tour pro­mot­ing their lat­est al­bum, Wake Up To The Sound.

Cen­tred on Mar­garet River’s Dan White, the col­lec­tive in­cludes Em­jay An­geni and Lindsay Baker, as well as a grow­ing and evolv­ing line-up of mu­si­cians from across the coun­try.

The al­bum’s cur­rent sin­gle, Eye Of The Nee­dle, fea­tures Sol Car­roll, from Band of Fre­quen­cies, and rep­re­sents the col­lec­tive’s sig­na­ture feel-good roots vibes.

While this time around, they will tour as a five-piece, the lat­est al­bum fea­tures the likes of Bobby Alu on drums and per­cus­sion, Ken Al­lars (Car­a­vana Sun) on trum­pet and keys, OJ New­comb (Band Of Fre­quen­cies/THUMP) on bass and An­gela Iimura on back­ing vo­cals.

The al­bum also fea­tures spe­cial ap­pear­ances from Car­roll (Band of Fre­quen­cies/Afro Dizzi Act) on vo­cals and Taro Ter­a­hara on bansuri.

Cap­tured at Yama-Nui Stu­dio on Queens­land’s Sun­shine Coast by PaulieB (The Beau­ti­ful Girls/Bobby Alu/Ge­orge), the col­lec­tive says the al­bum is “truly a col­lec­tive ef­fort, ex­em­pli­fy­ing what can be achieved through hu­man con­nec­tion”.

The col­lec­tive will play at Sa­ha­ran Daze in Cowaramup on Jan­uary 9, The River in Mar­garet River on Fe­bru­ary 11 and Clancy’s Fish Pub Duns­bor­ough on Fe­bru­ary 12.
