GDS FEST: John Butler

John Butler is an Aussie roots rock guitarist and frontman for , who emerged in the late '90s and found success with the platinum-selling albums Sunrise Over Sea (2004) and Grand National (2007). Australia's biggest contribution to the jam band movement, the trio's heady amalgam of reggae, political folk, blues, pop, and acoustic soul dominated the regional charts in the 2000s and 2010s. While facets of alt-rock began seeping into the mix on 2010's acclaimed April Uprising, and 2018's Home and 2023's Live in Paris saw the group incorporating some electronic elements, never lost their knack for pairing deft musicality with addictive yet off-center grooves, and have managed to maintain a large and loyal fan base both at home and abroad. Though he spent the first 11 years of his life in California, it was in Australia -- his father's native land -- that guitarist John Butler picked up the instrument that would later launch his music career. After showing interest in the guitar, the 16-year-old Butler was given his late grandfather's Dobro. He quickly began learning to play different styles of music, including Indian, Celtic, bluegrass, and folk. Butler showcased his budding skills by busking on the streets of Perth and Fremantle, and he began building an audience after releasing a homemade cassette featuring his own instrumental songs. The busking performances eventually gave way to a weekly residency at Mojos, a bar in North Fremantle, and Butler balanced his Tuesday evening gigs with preparations for a proper studio album. He released the self-titled John Butler in 1998, having recorded the album with drummer Jason McGann and bassist Gavin Shoesmith. The JBT EP followed in 2000, and Three -- the first of Butler's albums to receive an American release -- appeared in 2001. Shoesmith decided to leave by this point, and he was replaced by Rory Quirk and then later by Andrew Fry, who joined for a 2002 American tour. By now a bona fide star in Australia, Butler released a flurry of material during the three subsequent years: a double-disc live album, Living 2001-2002; an EP, Zebra; and a proper studio album entitled Sunrise Over Sea. Living 2001-2002 sold well and went platinum in Australia, but Sunrise Over Sea trumped its success exponentially, eventually going five-times platinum in Butler's homeland and faring well on several international charts as well. It also led to an opening spot on ' tour that year, which spread 's music to thousands of new fans.

GDS FEST: The Bamboos

Australian soul group the Bamboos progressed from bare-bones deep funk revivalists to a more ambitious, mature act, stepping up the production values and scoring radio hits in their native country. On their early singles and 2006 debut album Step It Up, the band played old-fashioned, primarily instrumental funk with a strong emphasis on repeated grooves, simplicity, and low-tech recording techniques. They gradually began working with more vocalists, particularly , who has sung on all of their subsequent albums. Releases such as 2010's 4 incorporated hip-hop, psychedelic pop, and cinematic music into the group's sound, and later efforts like 2018's Night Time People contained their most radio-friendly material. The band returned to their earlier deep funk sound with 2021's Hard Up.

GDS FEST: Caravana Sun

Described as “the most explosive performance ever witnessed” by LOST Magazine, Caravãna Sun has always been known for the raw energy of their live shows. From the huge crowd singalongs to the quiet, soulful heart moments, they always keep their focus on the connection to their audience. From touring with iconic artists Madness and UB40 to swimming with whale sharks in Exmouth for the Whale Shark Festival, Caravãna Sun has built up quite the reputation beyond the sunny shores of Australia. Hailing from Southern Sydney, Caravãna Sun formed in 2010 and consists of Luke Carra (guitar/vocals), Ant Beard (bass/vocals), Chris Smithson (keys/vocals) & James Smithers (drums). By 2016 the band had performed at over 500 shows from all corners of the globe, released three full-length albums, including the critically acclaimed album Guerrilla Club (2016), with the Sydney Morning Herald calling it “a sonic treat” with 4/5 stars and ”An album so full of otherworldly imagery and highly evolved instrumentation” by Rhythms Magazine. “We began playing in small venues, tucked away in the corner. Our songs were aimed to make people dance and move in any way. The band started in a place of ska and reggae with a big focus on the trumpet and driving rhythms to keep the energy up. We take our audience on a journey. With such an honest love for music and each other, Caravãna Sun has had an infectious feeling that’s been at the heart of every performance. Our atmosphere is truly honest and present in every moment. From Luke’s driving atmospheric guitar riffs to the swirling analogue synthesis, we paint pictures with sound and build the moments up to huge crescendos, usually ending up in a huge crazy/sweaty party.” Fast forward to 2020, Caravana Sun has not only cemented their place as a standout band across the world, but also shown no signs of slowing down. Signing with Berlin’s Embassy of Music and joining a heavyweight roster including Björk, Moby, and fellow Aussie acts Ball Park Music, the band is fully equipped and excited for what is to come. As a result of their extensive touring schedule pre-covid, the release of the album “Live in Germany” was only natural, extending their live show from audiences of over 5000 people to listeners around the globe. To top this off, Caravana Sun also released the exuberant single “Charlie”, an eloquent ode to companionship. Given the catastrophic events of 2020, this message struck a chord with fans in a way that couldn’t have been foreseen. The band’s next release, “Afterlife” is a dreamy rock odyssey which provides another glimpse into their highly anticipated forthcoming album and sets the record straight that Caravana Sun is making serious waves. Itching to get back on the road again and share their new music, 2021 is shaping up to be the band’s biggest year yet.
