Broken heart

Jack Carty.
Jack Carty.

FRESH from standout sets at Woodford Folk Festival, a solid year of national and international touring and his debut album, One Thousand Origami Birds - named in a slew of Best of 2011 lists - Jack Carty is on the road again following the release of his second album, Break Your Own Heart.

And in something of a coup for South Grafton, Carty has included The Naked Bean on his tour schedule.

Break Your Own Heart sees a darker, more dynamic turn in Carty's song writing, coinciding with a year that was, in the words of the man himself: "Simultaneously one of the best and worst of my life".

From the rolling guitar line of opening track The Length Of Canada (co-written with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Dan Wilson), through the gritty directness of Everything, Unhappily, the immense longing of songs like Travelling Shoes and She Loves Me to the ironically upbeat swagger of Waiting, Waiting, Break Your Own Heart is a stunningly unified, moving and thoughtful collection of songs that effortlessly captures a time and place in a young man's life. A time and place most of us can relate to.

Break Your Own Heart, released in April, is being dubbed his most ambitious, eloquent, moving and accomplished release. It reached a peak of #8 on the iTunes Australia Singer-Songwriter Chart and #15 on the Australian Independent Records chart when released.

 Jack Carty plays at The Naked Bean, South Grafton tomorrow night; donation at door.
