w/ Max Quinn, Jo Neugebauer & Obscura Hail

Sydney-based solo artist JACK R. REILLY is stoked to announce his new single ‘Newland Street’, together with a string of East Coast shows this June. ‘Newland Street’ is the follow up to 2016’s Video Tapes EP, and is available to listen to on Unearthed now.

Drawing from a wide landscape of influences, from Elliot Smith to Fugazi, Jack R. Reilly cultivates a vast landscape of emotion through his music. On ‘Newland Street’, an introduction of finger picked guitar grows to a full sonic soundscape with pianos and drawn out, ringing guitars. He sings of the little moments that give way to greater contemplations; considering survival, desire and belonging through the routine lens of travelling to work every day.

Originally hailing from Kiama, NSW, Jack R. Reilly has established himself as a welcomed staple of the NSW music scene. Testament to his versatile sound, over the last couple of years he has supported the likes of Into It. Over It. (USA), Kevin Devine (USA), Andy Bull, Tiny Ruins (NZ), Owl Eyes, Georgia Maq and Bec Sandridge, to name but a few. His last handful of singles have all had strong support on triple j Unearthed and even scored the co-sign of Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob) who called his music “ingenious.”

To celebrate the release of ‘Newland Street’, Jack R. Reilly is playing four shows in NSW and Vic with Max Quinn this June with a stellar cast of friends to support
