From humble beginnings in 2007 at Sydney’s Northern Beaches to international notoriety as both solo artists and together Angus & Julia have conquered the Australian charts, radio waves, and awards ceremonies, particularly with the multi-platinum selling, No. 1 album “Down The Way”, which topped the Triple J Hottest 100 and gave us anthems like ‘Big Jet Plane’, and ‘And the Boys,’ the former winning ARIA Song of the Year.
At the end of 2014, they delivered a captivating self-titled third album– produced by the legendary Rick Rubin & speculated as possibly their best yet. Debuting at No. 1 and already achieving gold status, it leads with the Top 40 single ‘Heart Beats Slow’, and has received worldwide critical acclaim.
Rubin comments ‘‘this album is extraordinary. Angus and Julia are truly unique musicians… they are authentic and pure people who do things from the heart. I’ve never worked with anyone like them before.”
Bluesfest 2015 welcomed them back to a well-acclaimed reception.
