ENTER TO WIN: Emma Donovan & The Putbacks
Acclaimed Indigenous vocalist Emma Donovan and Melbourne-based rhythm combo The Putbacks come to the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on March 24! The group burst on to the Australian music scene with their debut album Dawn in 2015, bringing a new voice to soul. Emma’s songwriting is optimistic, impassioned, and bruisingly honest, The Putbacks’ music is fluid, live and raw, and the collaboration has won friends and admirers all over the world.
The project was born of Emma and the band’s shared love for classic US soul and the protest music of Indigenous Australia. Donovan grew up singing church songs with her grandparents on the North coast of New South Wales and her first secular gigs were singing in the family band, The Donovans, with her mother and five uncles. Throughout her career, she has toured and recorded with many of the mainstays of Indigenous music from Archie Roach to Dan Sultan and was a part of the Black Arm Band project. It was in The Black Arm Band that Emma met members of The Putbacks and their journey together began.
The Putbacks collaboration with Emma elevates each others music to a whole other level of greatness. Together Emma Donovan & The Putbacks have together released three studio albums: Dawn (2014), Crossover (2020) and Under These Streets (2021), their most recent release.
