Bank Nights – Corn Nut Creek & Sarah Humphreys

Saturday, 16 September, 2023 at 8:00 pm

Free

Corn Nut Creek are a powerhouse female Alt-Country/Americana duo, hailing from America and Australia. Their original music has been awarded as a category finalist and juror’s top five selection in the 2020 Blues & Roots Radio International Song Contest. The band features the artful banjo work of Tanya Bradley, paired with the deft fiddle and soulful vocals of Danielle Vita, 1st place winner of 2020 Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention (USA) vocalist award.

The duo’s original songs tell raw stories of womanhood which are transporting, honest and effortless. Their story is unique; they met in Hong Kong and performed as the Dulcet Tone Collective, then moved back to their respective countries and began writing music together remotely. After four years collaborating in different countries, they reunited—this time in Australia. They have been featured on ABC Country’s ‘Saturday Night Country’, Bluegrass Country Radio’s ‘Foggy Hollow’, WDVX Tennessee’s ‘Sweetgrass’ and Blues & Roots Radio, among many others. They are planning to release their first full album in December 2022.

Depth of heart and sweetness of soul are two things that flow freely through the music of the beloved Australian folk singer, Sarah Humphreys. From delicate folk music to personal reveries, vibrant collaborations and rousing alt-country songs, Sarah has the ability to infuse it all with her innate sensitivity and an artisanal touch in the craft of song-writing.

Her fourth solo record, STRANGE BEAUTY is another tour de force of emotional and honest song-writing built on melody, melancholy and that sweet and untethered voice.

Sarah Humphreys has toured with and worked alongside artists including Katie Noonan, Kasey Chambers, Sara Storer, Fanny Lumsden, Liz Frencham, Loren Kate, Melody Pool, Kim Richey (USA), Charlie Parr (USA), Blind Boys Of Alabama (USA), Harry Hookey, James Reyne, Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), Kevin Bennett, Glenn Hannah, Felicity Urquart, William Crighton and many more. Sarah is an award winning session harmony singer, singing on ARIA award winning records, working as a singer for ABC Kids on Giggle & Hoot, ABC Kids education music and the annual Sing Australia Songbook and accompanying CD. Her songs have been featured in Australian tv and film, including Charlie & Boots, Home & Away, Neighbours, Packed To The Rafters and more. She is a beloved artist in Australia and features regularly on Australian radio including Triple J, high rotation on ABC Country, ABC National, Double J, RRR and is supported by countless community radio stations across the country.

“Sarah makes singing seem so effortless, graceful and easy that she leaves us feeling only the pure emotion of the words, of the song. She inspires other singers to higher heights. She sounds to me like the warm embrace of a wise, benevolent, beloved sister. She is the Karen Carpenter of our age, but with added spunk and grit.” – Matt Tonks

“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys’ beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.” – Kasey Chambers
