Nightjar, The Vampires + Chris Abrahams

2023 Artists

“Written and improvised melodies are flawless… an ever-unfolding and irresistible arc.” – Downbeat

With six releases and relentless touring across and Europe, The Vampires’ distinctive sound is undoubtedly their own. The band has garnered praise from US Downbeat (“phenomenal”), Guardian UK (“seductive genre hopping creativity”), and All About Jazz (“gold all over”). The Vampires have received nominations for Australia’s ARIA awards, Bell Awards, AIR Awards, and were the first instrumental act to win the Australian Music Prize.

Adding to their heady brew of jazz, reggae, dub, Latin & Afro-beat, Nightjar, brings a fresh perspective on their music in a collaboration with luminary pianist and keyboard player Chris Abrahams (The Necks).
