Jess Parker & The Troubled Waters:
With a voice like honey poured over a thunder, a howling, beat up old Gretsch guitar and thumping animalistic drums, Jess Parker &
The Troubled Waters mix their unique brew of dark Australiana and roaring swamp blues perfectly. After recording their debut EP - 'Goin' Swimmin' at The Aviary in late 2017 and embarking on a a string of local and regional shows, the momentum and force this Melbourne duos' train is growing stronger and proving to be unstoppable.”
