From one of my favourite albums of recent times, The Ember and the Afterglow by The Jed Rowe Band, comes a film clip directed by Lachlan Bryan, the creator of one my other favourite albums of recent times, thereby proving my theory that there’s some big creative country music cauldron happening in Victoria …
It’s a testament to both Lachlan and Jed that this clip is absolutely fitting for the song, ‘Castlemaine’, which opens the album. Rather than telling you the story of the song, why not watch for yourself …
Jed Rowe and his band will be touring the Australian east coast in July – having seen them play in Sydney, I highly recommend that you do not miss this tour if you’re within cooee of one of these venues:
