27 Listicle Series: CAMARANO

The first solo release from Perth engineer, writer and producer Mat Cammarano, the almost-eponymous project comes after years of Mat working behind the scenes with other artists. We caught up with Camarano to find out his top five local Perth acts. 
Top 5 artists coming out of Perth with CAMARANO

Michael Savage – Quite possibly the most prolific songwriter in the West. Loves a chord change and is particularly skilful with lyrics. His third album is due this year and I can confirm it’s his best yet. Recommended listening – ‘Mike Love’

Bri Clark – Enormous voice and born performer. The type that gives you goosebumps all over. She’s on the cusp of releasing her debut EP, recorded over East. It’s bloody good stuff and bound to blow up. Recommended listening – ‘Shiver’

The Money War – Dyl and Carmen are a dream combo and the band kicks ass. The songs and production are timeless and full of nostalgia. Itching for some new music from these guys. Recommended listening – ‘Right Kind of Love’

The Peppermint Club – Teleport back to the 60s with Chris Chen’s solo project. It’s dreamy, wistful and references all of my favourite classics. Debut album out later this year. Recommended listening – ‘Everything is Changing’

CHIP HAZARD – Incredible guitarist, composer and hard-working sideman. Blows my mind how he can evoke so much emotion without a vocal, without lyrics. Recommended listening – ‘The River’
