4 years in and 4 records down, South West fluid groovers Blue Child Collective are set to take their newest offering, “Wake Up To The Sound”, around the country as a 5-piece on an 11 date national tour this summer. Out on Friday 23rd November, the album will be preceded by another single and music video out next week.
The product of positive collaboration between frontman Dan White, Kiwi darling Emjay Angeni, sax man Lindsay Baker and many musicians from the wider Collective, “Wake Up To The Sound” is an album spanning countries, cultures and communities.
Featuring Bobby Alu on drums/percussion, Ken Allars (Caravãna Sun) on trumpet/keys, OJ Newcomb (Band of Frequencies/ THUMP) on bass and Angela Iimura on BV’s, plus special features from Sol Carroll (Band Of Frequencies/ AFRO DIZZI ACT) on vocals and Taro Terahara on bansuri, the album is truly a collective effort exemplifying what can be achieved through human connection.

Captured at Yama-Nui Studio on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast by PaulieB (The Beautiful Girls/Bobby Alu/George), “Wake Up To The Sound” is a sonic journey in which the magic of the location can be heard - from thunderstorms to singing tropical birdlife - yet will transport listeners far beyond their own backyard.
With multiple singles from the album already attracting regular spins on triple j’s ROOTS N ALL and earning them a nomination for WAM's (West Australian Music) Best Regional Act, to be announced next week, Blue Child Collective will be delving deeper into the concept of the record with a documentary titled “The Art Of Sound”, to be released a week before the national tour.
Building on a solid foundation resulting from years of national and international touring, the album will propel the Collective beyond their home shores yet again in 2019 as the #cultureofconnection movement continues to grow from another sound release, with plenty more to come.
