It’s been a phenomenal 12 months for the artist commonly referred to as the “fresh new prince from Arnhem Land” Baker Boy. The rapidly rising star catapulted into 2018 with two of his songs – Marryuna and Cloud 9 – winning their place in triple j’s Hottest 100. He has supported International legends 50 Cent and Dizzee Rascal, played at prime festivals Laneway, Splendour, Golden Plains and WOMADelaide to name a few. Last May, Baker Boy sold out his first national tour before heading overseas and wowing audiences at Norway’s Riddu Riddu festival; the largest cultural festival in the northern hemisphere.
With a live show described as “madcap exuberance” by Beat Magazine, The Northern Folk are a collective of ten musical ambitionists spreading their unique brand of folk/pop/stomp/rock into the roots of small towns and big cities alike. Combining two powerful vocalists, roaring horns, bashful bass and addictive percussion, they’re making a return to the Northcote Social Club in November to celebrate the release of their new single ‘Cold’, the first from an upcoming third album.
