Hat Fitz and Cara
Classed as Convict Rhythm and Roots Fitz and Cara are among Australia’s most talented roots music artists. The husband and wife team have clocked up over 14 years of worldwide touring, festival performances and 5 album releases from their base of operations in the hinterland of South East Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Also just released a 6th album which was recorded live from their home in the Hinterland featuring Andrew Szumowski aka (The Mouse).
Their festival touring circuit takes in Australia, the UK, North America and Europe where their modern blend of old-timey-influenced sounds is equally at home in a variety of settings from folk or Americana main stages to blues and acoustic venues. While the singer/songwriters are both multi-instrumentalists, it’s Fitzy’s weathered vocals and soaring blues-soaked guitar combined with Cara’s pounding drums and soulful honey coated voice that show them at the peak of their creative power.
Winners of Blues Album Of The Year at the 2013 Australian Chain Awards and UK Spiral Earth, Hat Fitz & Cara also won Best Vocal Of The Year at the 2015 Chain Awards and were finalists in the 2015 Memphis International Blues Challenge in the USA.
