Almost a year since he released his most recent album ('P.M.'), and with interstate travel slowly returning to the 'old normal', in a couple of weeks Jarryd James will head to Brisbane.
Originally slated to perform as part of Brisbane Festival back in September, his show at Princess Theatre (2 December) will be the first time the 'Do You Remember' and 'Give Me Something' crooner will get to play to a live audience in Queensland since 'P.M.' dropped.
"I really wasn't sure that this one was really going to end up happening, but it's looking good a month out. I'm gonna play the album I never got to tour," Jarryd says.
'P.M.' features the singles 'Slow Motion', 'Let It Go', 'Problems', 'Miracles' and 'Overdue'.
"'Overdue' is my favourite track on the album," Jarryd says. "The city of Los Angeles can be a strange place for an introvert from Brisbane. Keeping pretty unusual hours and not really looking after myself took its toll.
"We slowly started to make a piece of music while I drank some gin, and we made what I think is my favourite thing I've ever made.
"FrancisGotHeat sent back the flipped version of the beat that you hear at the end, which made it perfect for a feature.
"We put the feelers out and came across Trapo, an insanely talented young rapper from Wisconsin. After one listen to his album 'Oil Change' I knew he was the dude for it.
"Honestly, I thought he would do 16 bars which I would have been stoked with, but he went ahead and murdered the entire section that we sent him. Blew my mind when I heard it for the first time."To win one of three double passes (x2 tickets) to Jarryd James' show at Princess Theatre (Brisbane) 2 December, simply follow these twp steps:1.
