There’s always a party happening somewhere, and Jakubi provide the perfect soundtrack. That’s why the Melbourne, Australia quintet—brothers Jerome [vocals, keys, talkbox] & Jacob Farah [bass, moog], cousins Jesse Rehaut [drums, guitar] & Adam Kane [guitar, keys], and longtime friend Rob Amoruso [guitar, keys, drums]—immediately attracted a growing audience with their swinging, slick, and sizzling sonic buffet of pop, R&B, hip-hop, rock, and soul since first emerging in 2012. It all started as a good time…
“None of us have been to University at all,” Jesse goes on. “Working in L.A. and touring the states felt like our education. The biggest inspiration from traveling was the level of musicianship we got to see. There are amazing musicians in Australia, but the level is much higher in the U.S. It made us work harder and opened our eyes. There’s no better education for something creative than actually being there and doing it in front of a crowd and in the studio. It was a huge lesson.”
Produced by Hudson, the funky fresh swag of “Bank Account” kicks off 61 Barkly with a bang as Jerome’s voice volleys between buoyant guitars and resounding keys.
Their unparalleled chemistry stems directly from a family bond. “It’s such a big part of who we are,” comments Adam. “That connection helped smooth the process of touring and making a record halfway around the world from our homes. Being a family keeps us real.”
Now, 61 Barkly is the place where the fun commences. “This is only the beginning,” Jacob leaves off. “It’s our proper step in the door on an international level. This is it, and we can’t wait to share this music with the world.”
Coming off their second appearance At Outsidelands this past August, Sweet Plot is cooking with fire as they put the finishing touches on their upcoming third full length release “Wall of Eyes”. This San Francisco funk, rock and soul outfit has had a busy summer and fall, touring and releasing two fresh hard rocking singles; “Casino Games” and “Home Again”. Both can be found on Spotify and Itunes. Keep your eyes out for Sweet Plot as they charge full speed into 2019 with many show dates and releases to come.
