Brackets and Jam will return to Kincumba Mountain Kiosk on February 10.
February’s Brackets and Jam will feature the musical stylings of Chelsea Berman, Johnny Devilseed and Old Man Rubes, and The Love Handles.
Starting out in the live music scene 5 years ago with her duo, Just Between Us, Berman decided to take her love of country music and song writing to the next level by starting her solo career.
An experienced performer and vocalist, Berman has been singing since she was 8-years- old.
Her song writing is catchy and oozes early Taylor Swift.
Berman has been a finalist at the Australian Songwriters’ Association Competition in 2015 and 2016, and won the Homegrown Songwriting Competition in 2015.
With her duo, she was nominated for a MO Entertainment Award in 2014 and 2015.
Formed in late 2010 by guitarist Hayden Maskey and blues harpist Paul (Old Man Rubes) Rubie, the Johnny Devilseed duo have been doing the rounds about town.
With a huge repertoire of original songs, ranging from the old timey era to the modern blues of today, their shows have been described by many as a, “full on, hard-core, foot to the floor, theatrical blues extravaganza.”
In March 2014, the blues duo released their debut EP “John the Revelator” to much critical acclaim and have performed at many prestigious festivals up and down the East Coast of Australia.
Having opened for local and international acts such as Dead Kennedys, Ash Grunwald, Johnny Diesel, Phil Jamieson and Claude Hay, the Johnny Devilseed Duo has certainly carved a unique sound and reputation with their gravelly voiced, fast paced, blues tunes.
