Open Home Album Launch
TICKETS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR (CARD PREFERED)
Shaun Rammers’ Open Home will be launching their album on August 13th at the beautiful Yarra-me Djila Theatrette at the Ivanhoe Library. The ensemble will be performing all original music by Shaun from the new album “Worry Not.” Featuring Harriett Allcroft on voice, Flora Carbo on alto sax and bass clarinet, Isaac Gunnoo on bass and Lewis Pierre-Humbert on drums.
Recorded April 2021 at Pughouse Studio by the wonderful Niko Schauble, the album features six new pieces written by Shaun. The music presented on the album is about energy, for the band and the listener. Opening with “Relax, Mind You”, which might take you away from any stresses you might be feeling, or it might do just the opposite! Each piece is a statement on it’s own, whilst coming together as a whole album, telling stories of love and joy, as well as anxiety and doubt. Find out how we all like our breakfast during “How I Like My Eggs”, explore the make belief with “Slumpty Dumpty” and the be lead astray during “Follow Me”. “Watch Them Fade Away” is Shaun’s first foray into lyrics – a statement on the disgusting treatment of fellow humans that Australia continues to allow to happen through punishing asylum seekers, who are only trying to find a safe, open place to call home. The album finishes with “Worry Not”, looking inwards and reflecting.
The album will be available to purchase from August 13th, which 150 copies printed onto Vinyl, with artwork featuring a stunning photo by the amazing Michelle Grace Hunder. You will be able to purchase a ticket to the performance and a copy of the record for a special, one off price of $45 and will be able to take the record home that very afternoon!
The evening will also feature a very special solo performance from the one and only Ronny Ferella.
