Emma Donovan & The Putbacks 'Crossover' VINYL
Renowned Australian indigenous soul singer Emma Donovan and critically-acclaimed rhythm combo The Putbacks have released their much-anticipated album Crossover, defining a new flavour in the feast of Australian music, which features music powerfully performed and preserved in traditional language.
With nostalgic songwriting delving into Emma’s childhood, family and her late mother, Crossover is a beautifully honest soulful ride through the past, with relevance to the now.
The personal and honest lyrics throughout Crossover are emphasised by The Putbacks sharp, dynamic and funky rhythms, delivering a swag of soul-defining songs with sentimental hints of Stax and classic Atlantic recordings the whole way through.
Five-piece combo The Putbacks are veterans of the recording studio, having performed across a variety of festivals and major events for over a decade, establishing themselves as Melbourne’s go-to instrumental funk ensemble. Crossover is produced by renowned keyboardist (Hiatus Kaiyote, The Putbacks) Simon Mavin and released through Melbourne’s very own Hopestreet Recordings
