The Kid Can Sing

What do you say about a kid who has been able to rope in some of the finest musicians in Melbourne to play on his album? Lucky, or do they see what I see? Jules Sheldon is a lad with a great sense of melody, writing songs that are more polished than performers double his age. Of course, being at the beginning of his musical career (heck, he’s only 18), Jules will certainly grow and develop, hopefully into something real special.

His debut self-titled album is a smart effort; moving from sunny Aussie pop through to country and dirty folk. The lead guitar work of the enigmatic Spencer P Jones adorns Jules’ songs like a well-tailored suit. Despite all the changes in mood, tempo and arrangements, the consistency in Jules’ voice and his guitar playing provides the constancy that albums need.

Apart from world domination, Jules Sheldon’s goal is to be experimental and unpredictable as possible with his take on pop music. He is already on his way to recording another album in the next few months.

Jules Sheldon plays The Retreat Hotel tonight with  Brian Henry Hooper (Beasts of Bourbon).
280 Sydney Rd Brunswick. Doors open 8.30pm.
