In this episode we are hanging out with Magic Dirt’s Adalita.
Adalita has been quite busy of late, between shows with Magic Dirt, she has also toured in support of her third solo album Inland, released in 2022.
Shimmering with introspection, the record benefits from a solid gestation period, and bristles with raw emotion, cerebral lyrics, and her trademark kick-in-the-guts guitar.
This dynamic new work is a layered exploration of self, a tribute to a certain time and place, an analysis of infatuation and obsession, and a celebration of the empowerment
of letting go. An array of powerhouse musician friends feature, including multi-instrumentalist (and producer and co-producer on three tracks) Marty Brown, Matt Bailey, Dan McKay,
Laura Jean Englert, rising stars Ivy and Mabel Windred-Wornes, and the legendary Mick Harvey.
Adalita is also part of the Rolling Stones Review which also features Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers.
They will be a part of the fabulous Night At The Barracks event at Manly’s North Head in Sydney which kicks off on September 15.
They are set to perform on Friday September 29 and will be playing the legendary Sticky Fingers album in its entirety and a blistering set of Stones classics.
The show will be a full blown rock n roll spectacle- featuring the hits – Brown Sugar, Satisfaction, Jumping Jack Flash, Gimme Shelter and of course Sympathy for the Devil.
The chemistry Adalita, Tex and Tim is undeniable and this will be such a treat for ticketholders!
