Event Details

Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) will step out on his 27 date Australian tour to celebrate the release of “Set in Stone” – kicking off in March 2021

Jeff will be taking in some of his favourite live music rooms across the land, and creating some new stomping grounds along the way.

Promising to be a whole new live experience, the tour will feature songs from Jeff’s solo release ‘Cinnamon Rose’, including single “Set in Stone”, as well as crowd favourites for good measure.

“Set in Stone” is a “deep, dark and dirty” blues jam that borders on a “religious experience” featuring some extraordinary musicians, including drummer/percussionist Terepai Richmond (D.I.G, John Butler Trio), vocalist Lisa Hunt, and Jamie Ashforth on harmonica, and of course, Martin’s powerful vocals and multi-instrument prowess.

When I first picked up the guitar at 7yrs old, even at that young age, I was drawn to the blues. My father always had blues music playing in the house, artists such as Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, Howling Wolf, just to name a few. When I started writing Set In Stone last year I found myself revisiting some of my earliest blues influences. The song just opened up Pandora’s box, as if I’d written this song years ago, and suddenly I could hear every detail of every instrument and every melody. There’s no denying, of course, my great love and resounding influence of Led Zeppelin will always find its way in to songs like this.

The story behind the lyrics of Set In Stone is about the eternal battle between the light and dark side of our psyche. It’s that battle that continues to fuel my poetic fire. To understand and respect both sides, for me, makes me feel complete as an artist.

To be able to tour and play my new music is going to be a powerful experience that I look forward to sharing with the audience. We will all go on this journey together”. Jeff Martin
