Frontier Touring are excited to announce Mahalia Barnes and Jade MacRae as special guests on Jimmy Barnes upcoming Flesh And Blood tour. Mahalia Barnes will perform on all Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sydney shows and Jade MacRae on all Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne dates.
With Flesh And Blood – the tour and the new album – including contributions from the extended Barnes family, it’s fitting that acclaimed singer-songwriter Mahalia Barnes opens the show in stripped back mode at the Gold Coast, Brisbane and two Sydney shows.
The powerhouse soul and blues vocalist has been in and around music her entire life, having been exposed to everything from Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Ike + Tina Turner and Ray Charles. Mahalia + The Soul Mates have released three albums, Volume One, Ooh Yea!: The Betty Davis Songbook and 2018’s Hard Expectations.
Most recently, Mahalia along with Kate Ceberano and Nikki Costa performed the Russell Morris classic ‘The Real Thing’ on Music From The Home Front. Mahalia also paid tribute to Helen Reddy with a rousing performance of the iconic ‘I Am Woman’ live on Q+A (ABC).
Multi ARIA award nominee, APRA award winner and close Barnes family friend, R&B and Soul singer, Jade MacRae joins the tour as special guest in Perth, and the two Adelaide and two Melbourne shows. With a career spanning 25 years, including much of the past four years on the road with US blues guitarist, Joe Bonamassa, MacRae released new single ‘Weather The Storm’ last month and the acclaimed ‘Handle Me with Care’ album featuring the singles ‘I Choose Love’ and ‘Midnight Air’ in 2020.
Jade’s flair for live performance, versatility and dynamic delivery have taken her to join the stage and studio with countless local greats; Jimmy Barnes, Neil Finn, Cold Chisel, Renee Geyer whilst internationally, Ray Charles, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), George Bensen and John Legend.
