In-Store Performances

FULTON STREET – Friday 28th of September at 12.45pm

FULTON STREET are an exhilarating 7-piece band making tsunami-like waves in Melbourne’s rich soul music scene. Led by commanding vocalist, Shannen Wick and featuring a rock solid rhythm section and dynamic horns, Fulton Street combines the classic elements of soul and R&B with magnetic energy to create an irresistible sound.  They’ve already played some very cool residencies & secured lot’s of airplay on public radio & ABC etc…all cementing Fulton Street as one smoking hot band on the rise. Their debut album ‘Problems & Pain’ was produced by Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ Ivan Khatchoyan, and is an explosive, exciting piece of soul.

Fulton Street’s debut has been on high rotation here at The Basement Discs, and we are very happy to announce that they will be performing in-store on Friday the 28th of September!  Don’t miss this high energy 7-piece soul band performing LIVE — come on down and pick up a signed copy of their album while you’re here, available on CD & vinyl!  Also be sure to catch them that same weekend performing at the Caloundra Music Festival in Kings Beach on the Sunshine Coast (if you happen to live in that ‘neck of the woods’!)) among many other fantastic artists, buy tix here!

JACKIE MARSHALL – Friday 21st of September at 12.45pm

Launching her first new album in 8 years, Jackie Marshall’s ‘Lilith Shrugs’ LP (co-produced by The Re-Mains’ Leigh Ivin) is set for release on September 10th.  The album features 11 diverse tracks.  At times dense and rollicking, at others pensive and exposed, this album rolls along…. assuredly, brimming with feminine resilience.  Jackie has planned a series of initial tour dates to support the release of the record as she dips her very willing and able toes back into touring waters after a long hiatus!
And we are of course very pleased that Jackie nominated/requested that The Basement Discs be a Melbourne ‘launching pad’ on the 21st of September!  Don’t miss the opportunity to hear her live and pick up a signed copy of her new album!

JACK LADDER – Thursday 20th of September at 12.45pm

Jack Ladder is a singular character in Australian music. Sentimental and sardonic, tender and surreal, he brings his immense & incredibly warm baritone to bear on tales of beauty, love and hope. A master of musical narrative, he conjures lyrics that celebrate the absurdity and sincerity of the human condition in songs that never fail to make you move. Blue Poles’, his latest & fifth album, expands on some of the rich canvases that followers have come to expect.
It gives us great pleasure to welcome Jack Ladder back to The Basement Discs stage for an in-store performance on Thursday the 20th of September! Do keep in mind that this is a THURSDAY performance — not the usual Friday time slot. Come down and see this great Australian talent LIVE, and be sure to pick up a signed copy of his album while you’re here!  We will of course have both CD & VINYL on hand.
