Through a Mirror
Singer/songwriter John Albert’s powerful lyrics and original voice deliver a unique Kimberley sound.
The former Scrap Metal frontman says:
“I was born and raised in the northern part of Western Australia where the land is red, the beaches are white and the seas are blue. Broome is a small town originally known for its booming pearl industry, a town that still has a reputation for being a melting pot of many cultures.
Out of this pot came the rhythms of exotic hybrid styles of music. Influenced by many of these cultures, I have emerged from One Arm Point (Ardyaloon), the traditional home of the Bardi people, with my experience and composition to present to the people.
The music on this album reflects the social issues of family, community and my Aboriginality. I am also aware of my environment, emotions and spirit which I have inherited through Aboriginal culture”.
