BALD & THE BEAUTIFUL

Bald & The Beautiful hosts Canberra Blues Society July Pro Blues Jam.

Enter the enigmatic trio, Bald & The Beautiful, whose music outruns mere notes and chords. With a masterful blend of even tempered composure and tensioned restraint, their originality invites listeners on an odyssey through the depths of human experience.

Crafting secretive lyrical content from deep seated experiences, the band dishes out their messages over the grail of guitar, bass and drums with a sly finesse. Their music is a roller-coaster of emotions, ranging from pressurised intensity to charming allure, from shocking revelations to soul searching introspection, keeping you hooked at every twist and turn.

Bald & The Beautiful emerged from the fertile grounds of the vibrant 80s music scene, comprised of lifelong friends, Saul Burgess on vocals and lead guitar, Greg Whitford anchors the bass and David Sell fuels the drums. Absorbing influences ranging from Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Ian Dury and The Cure, they’ve sculptured a sound that’s impossible to pin down, one that defies categorisation.

Reunited in 2016, their synergy has only deepened, resulting in a silent understanding that infuses their original music. With 100% Home-Grown authenticity, Bald & The Beautiful invite you to explore their sonic landscape, where every note reveals and every lyric evokes imagery.

The host band will be followed by some of the finest musicians in the Canberra region jamming together for a fabulous afternoon of live Blues music.
