Massive news to come out of the No.7 boardroom is the announcement that Melbourne based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JESS LOCKE will be gracing the Friday Night Live stage for a short run of two shows (July 26th and August 2nd).
“Jess Locke has been known to make people waltz, cry and fall asleep. While the obvious comparisons have frequently been made with Cat Power, Laura Marling and Elliott Smith, these artists are a point of departure for her, rather than an end to be matched. Stylistically, Locke's work could be called folk, anti-folk, pop, indie, acoustic or lo-fi. However, it's her skill as a songwriter and her understated yet intense live performance that makes her a notable artist. Both lyrically and sonically, Locke oscillates between feelings of fundamental loneliness and humble connectivity, between sublime and mundane pleasures, between big words and profanity”. - Triple J
