The Caribbean Sessions EP LAUNCH
The Vanguard
 

Four weeks on the remote Caribbean island of Anguilla is where Bridie O'Brien caught her breath. Bridie rendezvoused with lauded Australian producer Syd Green (iOTA/TonksGreen/Mantissa) to record her 3rd studio release. 'The Caribbean Sessions' is a six track collection of songs infused with steel pan drum, Bridie's signature vocal, and Spanish-reggae rhythms. The music is arresting, delivered complete with storytelling and visual insights into this journey to the land of rum, sun and unruly fun. Bridie and her five piece band will stagger eagerly on stage and unravel the sounds and stories of the Caribbean, also featuring songs from her previous two albums. Comprised of some of Sydney's finest players, the band includes Ned Wu, Syd Green, Richard 'Bongo' Davidson, Stu West and Niveen Abdelatty.

Bridie will be supported by Kinsky, a 9 piece roots reggae band, known for beautiful vocal harmonies and a powerhouse rhythm section, complete with horns.
