Lo Carmen & Peter Head
The Apple Don't Fall Far From The Tree
"This album is the sound of the best hotel bar at 3am you could dare to imagine; the kind that no longer exists and probably never did."
"...the spirit of Hank Williams and Gram Parsons ... a charming smoky blues romp" The Australian
"...Head’s elegant and melodious playing and Carmen’s playful purr of a voice ... draws you deep into the songs...making this an album high on smoky atmosphere and the ghosts of many a raised glass." The Music
Indie songstress Lo Carmen 'sits in an intangible, magical, rarefied space, somewhere between Tom Waits & Dolly Parton...' and her piano playing daddy Peter Head has earned his reputation for ‘always laying down a magical rolling chord, a riff, a poignant lyric, a primal honed voice - frayed at the edges as it is, rasping, growling, crackling and about as soulful as it gets....' Together they have recorded their long-time-comin' father/daughter album 'The Apple Don't Fall Far From The Tree'...
"... an endearing mix of country soul and late night jazz... built on Head’s elegant and melodious playing and Carmen’s playful purr of a voice that draws you deep into the songs... high on smoky atmosphere and the ghosts of many a raised glass." Chris Familton, The Music
