Best known as the frontman for one of Australia’s best loved bands The Black Sorrows, and recently awarded “living legend” status by Rolling Stone Australia, Joe Camilleri has kicked a staggering number of goals over his 50+ years in music as a singer, songwriter, musician, performer and producer at the top of his game.
Over the years other greats have admired Camilleri’s songwriting. Elvis Costello and John Denver are just two who have recorded versions of Joe’s songs.
As frontman of the seminal 70’s band, Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, with hits Shape I’m In, So Young and Hit and Run, Joe was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007.
With The Black Sorrows, there have been hits not only in Australia but also in Europe. Touring there several times playing songs that have become radio staples like Chained to the Wheel, Harley & Rose and Hold On To Me.
There was an ARIA Award for Best Group in 1990, and in 2015 their ‘Endless Sleep’ album was nominated for the 2015 ARIA Award for Best Blues & Roots Album, the band’s 19th nomination.
With Camilleri at the helm, the Black Sorrows deliver a glorious potpourri that takes in gospel, zydeco, reggae, Texas swing, old-school R&B, soul, gospel, dub, even noir.
