Interview #12 – Blue King Brown

Good morning world!
 
Today we’re in for a bit of a treat. A few short weeks back I was blessed to catch-up with Carlo Santone and Nattali Rize of Blue King Brown before they jetted back off to Jamaica for another 6 months. Living the dream!
 
I’ve shot Blue King Brown live and seen them at a bunch of festivals/shows around Australia and we’ve got a few mutual friends, so it was kind of cool finally having them on my couch to chat about the inspiration of living and recording in Kingston, Jamaica (yes, this is their second time now), shitty jobs like delivering pamphlets back in the day to keep the cash coming in, to inspiration and impact of the likes of Miles Davis, Mama Kin and Sydney Peace Prize winner Noam Chomsky on their lives, doing their bit to raise awareness for what’s going down in West Papua, their beginnings and how the stunning, mind-blowing beach town of Byron Bay has changed over the years.
 
We get the down low on Blue King Brown’s kick-ass new album “Born Free” (stream in full on below) and Nattali Rize’s new solo career a brand new project that these 2 lovely people are now pursuing side-by-side along with the Blue King Brown project – recording with Julian Marley and a swag of other talented Jamaican musicians. 
 
Let’s get down to it.

Wow… lovin’ this wicked new reggae jam by the crew at Blue King Brown… Can’t wait to catch-up with Carlo and Nat tomorrow night for the ‘Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet’ podcast!

Fresh from a couple of concerts with UB40 last weekend, this week sees Nattali Rize performing several rare acoustic shows in both Melbourne (Thursday 11th December – The Espy) and Sydney (Friday 12th December – The Factory), hitting the stage with Jamaican reggae revival star, Chronixx

Then in mid-January the band hit the road to launch their third studio album Born Free and I for one, like many of the Blue King Brown fans around the globe no doubt, can’t wait to see them live again!

“It’s been an upful year of creative exploration in the studio, and with the new album now out there in the world, we are pumped to return to the stage with the full force live show.” lead singer, Nattali Rize states, with BKB co founder Carlo adding The world system is pushing us harder, and harder, driving it’s oppressive boot deeper and deeper onto the people, we must holdfast, be the light in what has become a dark reality for many. Do not forget the downtrodden! Reclaim your mind, mental slavery, debt slavery is alive and kicking, we sing and speak against these things, bringing a positive vibration, being the balance, that is what our shows and music is about.”

My heart & mind hold many special memories of seeing Blue King Brown live including rockin’ shows at Big Day Out, shooting them live for triple j at Pyramid Rock and many many more. Pretty damn excited!

From the streets of Fitzroy to fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Jungal

From the streets of Fitzroy to the fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Hailing from country Victoria, Jungalwalla sister (Leisha and Jessie) & adopted sibling Vic typify the hard-working Australian indie rock band. With punters spoilt for music choice in this country, emerging artists have to diversify, make their own way and create new opportunities off their own back. Jungal have toured Australia 8 times and have built quite a following touring the Canadian summer festival circuit 3 times in the past few years.

Not shy of the camera, a cheeky beer and wicked banter, the all-girl trio created this cute little vid to drive crowd-sourced funding to record their 2nd studio album before they jet off to North America for tour #4.

Jungal are 100% independent, self-funded & self-managed band.

Watch the vids, download free tunes off triple j Unearthed, share the ♥ & get involved!
