Nick Lowe

with Jim Lauderdale

Last year's electric closing show from Nick Lowe, Paul Carrack and Andy Fairweather Low was one of the most memorable nights in Southern Fried history. The only vaguely negative feedback we received was that there maybe wasn't quite enough Nick Lowe songs in it as some people would have liked. We've remedied that at the earliest opportunity and are very excited that Nick will return to Perth for this solo concert.

Somewhere in London a musician carries the keys to the musical kingdom. In his Technicolor sonic scope are all kinds of sounds, from rock to country to soul to pop. Nothing is off limits, as long as it has a groove and goodness based in reality. The musician has been performing for 40 years, but is as fresh today as the first time he stepped on stage. There are no tricks or short cuts here. Far from it. His songs are as solid as the earth, yet carry no lingering hype or heaviness. The musician is Nick Lowe, the headmaster of British rock.


Jim Lauderdale is both a 'songwriter's songwriter,' who's written/co-written many modern classics for iconic artists, as well as an intuitive sideman, who's enhanced the music of a bevy of esteemed musicians. As a solo artist he's created a body of work spanning 28 albums of imaginative roots music, encompassing country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock, as well as helping pave the way for the current Americana movement. Jim has written songs and worked with some of the finest artists in traditional and modern music, including Robert Hunter, Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Buddy Miller, Lucinda Williams, John Oates, Solomon Burke, Lee Ann Womack, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mary Chapin Carpenter and The Dixie Chicks among many, many others.
