The Jack Daniel’s LIVE AT LAST Tour will give back to artists, venues and music lovers all around Australia after a tough two years, with 100% of ticket sales raising funds for Support Act.

Kicking off at SolBar in the Sunshine Coast tonight, Perth psych rockers Pond will be joined by CLYPSO with her upbeat sound and stand out vocals. The vocalist, producer, songwriter and instrumentalist is a mainstay in the alternative electronic music scene. A sought-after collaborator, CLYPSO has worked with the likes of The Avalanches, Jamie XX, Neneh Cherry, The Magician and Kwame to name a few. Don’t miss her high-energy live show when she joins Pond for Jack Daniel’s LIVE AT LAST.

A fizzled-out Tinder date collided with a Gumtree ad, and from the flaming ashes rose The Buoys. The sweet and savoury all-female Sydney band will be joining Psychedelic Porn Crumpets in their hometown on Thursday 21 April. Provoked by workplace feuds, slow walkers on the footpath and a tonne of bad dates, The Buoys carve out a fresh space in the indie guitar scene, traversing the bounds from uncertainty to curiosity, disappointment to determination. The Buoys kicked off 2022 strong, placing at #85 in triple j’s hottest 100 countdown – an achievement that is just a small taste of all that is to come. Be sure to catch them when they play Jack Daniel’s LIVE AT LAST.

Wafia and merci, mercy are set to charm Brisbane when they join San Cisco at the Fortitude Music Hall on Sunday 24 April. Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Wafia magnifies identifiable and idiosyncratic experiences in the form of alternative pop anthems. The gold-selling Netherlands-born Australia-based Iraqi-Syrian songstress relies on a keen sense of observation and sharp pen as she catalogs the world in real-time on her 2020 EP Good Things. Having kicked off her career with her 2014 debut single ‘Let Me Love You’ and 2015 debut EP, XXIX, Wafia broke onto the mainstream with Louis The Child’s RIAA gold-certified smash, ‘Better Not’. Clocking nearly 300 million cumulative streams, Wafia makes music you’ll treasure like an unforgettable memory.

With over 12 million streams to her name, a debut EP no thank you, no thanks, and press support from the likes of Paper Magazine, Flaunt, Clash and NME, merci, mercy’s star is well and truly on the rise. The young artist recently revealed her vibrant new single ‘Sick To My Stomach’, the effervescent pop gem providing another taste of her forthcoming sophomore EP due out later in 2022. merci, mercy’s catchy previous single ‘Winnie Crush’ reached triple j’s #1 Most Played Chart, received spins from BBC Radio 1 and ZM in New Zealand and received a shout-out from Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily. Be a part of one magical night of live music when Wafia and merci, mercy accompany San Cisco in Brisbane for Jack Daniel’s LIVE AT LAST.

Then joining Ruby Fields in Melbourne on Thursday 28 April is close friend and country-tinged indie rock artist Adam Newling. Since making his solo debut in early 2020, the last 12 months have been truly phenomenal for Newling. Releasing his debut EP, Occupational Anxiety, in May 2021, it was in September that the world truly realised his majesty, with ‘Sweetness’ arriving as his biggest single to date. The track was added into full triple j rotation, received over half-a-million streams, hasn’t left the Shazam Australia top 100 charts since its release, and placed #98 in triple j’s Hottest 100. This is followed by Newling’s latest EP, Half Cut and Dangerous. A snapshot of his creativity, the EP features  previously released singles ‘Sweetness’ and ‘Singing Blackbird’ as well as his latest track ‘Leather Face’. Witness Newling’s artistry when he performs for Jack Daniel’s LIVE AT LAST.
