Harry Jakamarra | 'It Won't Take Long' Single Launch
Elwood Gray, Albert Gray and Frank's Fish Tank
Mojo's Bar (North Fremantle, WA)

Harry Jakamarra’s latest single was produced amidst the chirping geckoes, howling frogs and tropical rainstorms of the Kimberley wet-season. It was recorded just before Harry lost a fretting finger in a freak accident, permanently altering his playing.
This song marks the birth of a truly distinct style of ‘Gothic Australiana’. Harry’s sparse and gritty lyrics create a neo western world of intrigue and mistrust. The influences of 1970’s Americana are there, but they’ve taken a turn and become lost in the harsh mystery of the Kimberley.
This is the first single from an exciting new EP.
Harry and his brother Elwood embark on a comprehensive WA tour this October. They are joined at Mojo’s by their third brother Albert Gray. Also on the lineup is sisters duo Frank’s Fish Tank.
