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.

He also won a MusicOZ award for Singer/Songwriter of the Year. Jack has had music featured in TV shows from Covert Affairs (USA) to Packed To The Rafters and has clocked up in excess of 300 live shows nationally and internationally.

jack-carty-general-4-hires-(3)-(1600x2000)Break Your Own Heart peaked at #8 on the iTunes Australia Singer/Songwriter Chart and #15 on the Australian Independent Records chart and became the most named album in the Album Of The Year lists from contributors to Australia’s premier folk music blog Timber & Steel. 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.
