Alt-country brothers to bring a taste of the desert to Mandurah

When Harry Jakamarra picks his guitar, he raises the roofs of Pilbara pubs and has crowds up on their feet.

And now Jakamarra and younger brother, Elwood Gray are excited to bring their signature alt-country, rugged Kimberley cowboy sound to the Peel region.

Hailing from Broome, the brothers are hitting the road on an extensive national tour in support of Jakamarra’s latest EP, ‘In Your Town Tonight’.

And Mandurah country music fans will be entranced by their unique sound when they play at the Ravenswood Hotel on Friday, October 12.

Following their Mandurah gig, the boys head to Perth and then on to South Australia and Queensland to continue taking Australian audiences by storm with their impressive vocal harmonies and intoxicating stage presence.

Fast creating a name for themselves, these brothers are rising out of the West Australian desert and into the hearts of Aussie music lovers.

Jakamarra has played at major festivals including upcoming ‘Festival of Small Halls’ and support slots with Missy Higgins, Paul Kelly and The Waifs.and teamed up with music legend Jeff Lang to release his latest EP in September.

But when he’s not picking guitars and jotting song lyrics, Jakamarra has been taking on council policies in his spare time.

Fined for playing a house concert alongside his brothers his June, the artist is in the midst of campaigning against local governments to change their house concert rules.
