Since singing his way onto the scene in 2009, Jack Carty has been a busy boy – releasing a debut EP Wine & Consequence, and two critically acclaimed full-length albums One Thousand Origami Birds and Break Your Own Heart.

Carty also secured a place as a top 10 finalist in the highly coveted APRA Professional Development Awards.

The release of his stunning collaboration with with Sydney-based producer sees Jack take a turn away from the folk troubadour roots of his first two albums; he has stepped into a different musical realm exploring a new set of sounds, beats and vocal phrasing.

To celebrate the EP release and following the sold-out Sydney launch show, Jack Carty is travelling The Predictable Crisis Tour, playing songs from the new EP and his two full-length critically acclaimed albums.

You can catch Jack tonight at The Rails in Byron Bay.
