The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most enduring touring bands.
From humble beginnings playing inner-city cafes around Melbourne and selling albums from the boot of a car, Joe Camilleri transformed the band into one of the most sophisticated ensembles in the country.
For 30 years, the glorious voices of Vika and Linda Bull have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape.
Their invitation to join Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows ushered in the band’s most successful era: Hold Onto Me, Harley and Rose and Better Times were all triple-platinum albums between ’88 and ’92, and the sisters’ prominent vocals captivated massive audiences, here and worldwide.
The latest incarnation of The Black Sorrows is – Claude Carranza (guitar/vocals), Mark Gray (bass/vocals), John McAll (keyboards/vocals) and Angus Burchall (drums).
