Berlin-based, Australian animator Lucy Dyson has created a new music video for Melbourne jazz outfit Urbanity.
Urbanity is the collaboration of Australian jazz great Albare on guitar and keyboard player Phil Turcio, who has worked with k.d. lang, Hugh Jackman, Olivia Newton-John and Jimmy Barnes.
Lucy has previously worked on over 50 music videos including Sarah Blasko ‘Without’, Paul Kelly ‘Sonnet 18’ and Kate Miller-Heidke ‘Ride This Feeling’.
“I was asked to make something last minute, and so I turned this around in little over a week,” she says at her website. “I guess I was having one of those seriously reclusive weeks where I just wanted to nerd out and animate, definitely my idea of a good time.”
Urbanity launched their new album ‘Urban Soul’ at Bird’s Basement in Melbourne last month and will introduce the new music live to Sydney on 31 March, 2017.
The Urbanity live band also includes with Gerry Pentazis on Drums and Peter Molice on Bass.
Albare recorded his first two albums for Festival Records in the 90s and also produced Joe Chimdamo’s first solo album ‘A History of Standard Time’. He has been one of Australia’s most prolific jazz artists of the past decade releasing Midnight Blues (2007), After the Rain (2009), Travel Diary (2010), Long Way (2012), The Road Ahead (2013), 2 Decades of Jazz (2014), Only Human (2015) and Dream Time (2016) and now the album with Urbanity.
