2015 is off to a racing start for award-winning producer Jan Skubiszewski.
His first major project has been working with Melbourne indie/folk duo Pierce Brothers, who are signed to Warner Music Australia. It’s been a whirlwind 12 months for the Pierce Brothers, with their last EP ‘The Night Tree’ coming in at #21 on the ARIA charts, #1 on the AIR charts and in the Top 10 on iTunes. Currently on a national tour supporting Dan Sultan, the anticipation is high about what’s to come following the brothers’ creative efforts in the studio with Jan.
2015 also sees Jan teaming up with The Cat Empire again, twelve years after he was the assistant engineer on their debut self-titled album, which achieved double platinum status. The band is currently on an international tour, with shows scheduled for the States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
Rounding out the first three months of this year will be time spent producing soul songstress Ms Murphy‘s new live studio album in Sydney. The album will include two new songs written by Paul Kelly, and a national tour will follow. Ms Murphy has previously released two EPs, White Dress and The Spirit in 2013, and Stride in 2014. Having already charted in the iTunes Top 10, the industry eagerly awaits what will come next following her collaboration with Jan.
