Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker’s new album, Seedlings All, is released physically today and digitally on Friday 23 March in Australia. Watch their stunning video to ‘Chicago’, by award winning filmmaker Bob Gallagher below!
Catch the duo perform their debut Australian shows this March at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival and The Thornbury Theatre in Melbourne. Full tour details below.
Seedlings All is Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker’s first album to be made up of all original songs and is songwriter Clarke’s most autobiographical work to date. She explains: “For the first time I’m out there alone with a bunch of songs that expose my insecurities, fears of failure and inflated pride. They deal with my own specific thoughts and feelings about the reality of pursuing this kind of career, the cost to personal relationships, circumstance and lifestyle, and asking the question – “Is this still worth it?” They’re about trying to find an inner balance in an environment that doesn’t provide any balance or certainty. Where one day everything is brilliant and the next day it could all be over. Where one night ends in a standing ovation and the next starts by playing to an empty room.”
