Jack Carty

Presented by The Harbour Agency

Award-winning, indie-chart topping, independent Australian songwriter, Jack Carty, is bringing his ever-growing swag of well-travelled songs to Brisbane Powerhouse.

Many things are born of new marriages. Matching linen, tiny humans and for Australian troubadour Jack Carty, an album, Home State, which debuted at #1 on the AIR 100% Independent Album Chart.

In a huge 2016 for Carty – including touring nationally through Australia, New Zealand and the UK – Home State was performed, recorded and produced by Jack in a tiny one-bedroom apartment in Brisbane’s Red Hill.

It is clear that – although Jack’s trademark honesty and hopefulness will never desert him – the lovelorn boy of One Thousand Origami Birds, Break Your Own Heart and Esk has evolved into a man of quiet confidence with a renewed excitement for stories and songwriting.

Don’t miss this chance to see Jack perform live at Brisbane Powerhouse.


The recently married Carty might well have found his happy place ★★★★


A warm, thought-provoking album full of phrases that return to play repeatedly in one’s head
