Reflections XIII

Meet us in the bar to see cult surrealist crooner Jack Ladder for Reflections — our special series of live music performances presented monthly on Friday evenings.

Long regarded as one of Australia’s most distinctive performers, Ladder is the rare artist that marries a finely honed songwriting craft with an ever widening sonic palette. Since 2005, Jack Ladder has released four albums: Not Worth Waiting For, Love is Gone, HURTSVILLE and Playmates.

Each album has seen a stylistic shift musically, but always there is his one of a kind baritone voice, a sardonic eye, finely honed songwriting craft and an ability to draw the listener into his detailed narratives, holding them there until the very end.

Backed by his band, The Dreamlanders (Laurence Pike, Donny Benet and Kirin J. Callinan), Playmates was his most acclaimed and adventurous album to date, somehow combining bristling rock, ominous synth pop and even warped country. That album was released by esteemed label Fat Possum in 2015, and the band toured the US twice that year to support it.

His acclaim has spread to artists such as Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and Florence Welch of Florence And The Machine, all of whom invited him to open for them on their Australian tours in 2015 and 2016.

“Jack Ladder's slow-spoken baritone”, said The Australian, “adds drama to everything he says". While The Music opined that “it all comes back to that voice: It can be a conspiratorial whisper, an ache in the dark, a desperate need” and US music site Stereogum dubbed him “a surrealist crooner”.

Jack Ladder will be supported on our Golden Stage by Aislinn Young.
