Veteran singer-songwriter group Baggage & Stuff is a Sydney five-piece collaboration between two popular live acts: Men with Day Jobs and Aubrey & Purton. It’s also the title of their first combined album (2021). The five have worked together since 2017, and some of them for fifty years!
All sing, play and write prolifically. Individually/variously they’ve delighted hundreds of venues and festivals; appeared on radio/TV; released many albums; won major awards for musical, radio and stage writing; had books published; busked in far-flung places; backed big names from Jimmy Little to John Williamson. Their climate satire “Denial Tango” has been covered worldwide, piling up YouTube hits.
Their originals run a wide gamut of genres, tempos, moods and subjects. They share a passion for music and life, a concern for people and planet, a feel for Sydney’s many stories, and a sense of humour both sharp and daggy. You won’t leave without a laugh, tear, pricked conscience or stomped foot.
Great words, great tunes… funny, poignant, political without being preachy… ingenious! – John Huxley, SMH
