Eastside Music Cafe and Almost Acoustic present

Karl Broadie

Karl Broadie, a Sydney-based Scotsman, found his way to Australia back in 1997. A debut album, Nowhere Now Here (2003) and a follow-up EP Everybody’s Gold (2004) earned this displacedpoet/lyricist/troubadour, global recognition and a reputation as a very fine craftsman of songs. Reviews in MOJO, UNCUT, RECORDCOLLECTOR, HARP(USA), AMPLIFIER(USA) Rhythms(AUS) all praised Broadie’s unique “sweetly cracked” voice and drew songwriting comparisons to the finest of the Americana/Alt-Country genre; Dylan, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young and Wilco. He recently won first prize in the Roots/Americana section of the International Songwriting Competition, of which one of the judges was Tom Waits.
