Lovett covers a lot of styles, is a wonderful singer-songwriter who draws on the well of folk, blues, country and western swing.
For a time I was transported to a place that's hard to explain. It was sublime, an experience one might call spiritual. Confirming even an atheist can be touched by the unknown.
At our second-ever show - Newport Folk Festival in Melbourne, 2014 – a folk and blues musician from Wangaratta caught the tail-end of our 45 minute set in the scout hall.
The Mighty Reapers did a wonderful version with Continental Robert Susz on vocals and harp. It was very cool.
Luke Davies pays tribute to his father, via Frank Sinatra's version of My Way.
