It may be a couple of months down the track, but news that sisters Brooke, Sam and Mollie McClymont are slated to appear at Blacktown Workers Club on Saturday, September 5, will no doubt be relished by Hawkesbury country music fans.
Despite an uncertain future with the current COVID-19 restrictions affecting live venues across the country, tickets for The McClymonts gig have been selling steadily, according to the club.
The western Sydney visit will be the second date of the girls' tour in support of the recently released sixth album, Mayhem To Madness.
According to the trio, the title is apt to the lives they lead - splitting their time between family life [each are proud mothers] and the hectic demands of the road.
Mayhem To Madness is the first new release for The McClymonts in three years.
Pushing their contemporary sensibilities a tad further than before, they once again employed the services of producer Andy Mak, who twiddled the knobs on the previous release, Endless.
For Brooke, the recording process this time around was challenging to say the least.
"I was at different stages of pregnancy in the studio and didn't realise how it would impact my body and my breathing," she said. "I had to be really patient to get the results I demand from myself."
Sam said that Mak certainly brought out the best of the sisters vocally.
"Andy really pushes us not to sing the harmonies that are most natural and obvious to us," she said. "He'll pick out a completely different note within the scale and want us to try that."
Mollie agreed, saying there was a certain amount of brain retraining during the studio sessions, which she says gives the album an elevated sense of texture.
"We also take that into our live performances which keeps it more interesting for our audiences," Mollie said.
Brooke said the magic of the harmonies added greatly to her lead vocal.
"Even now, I will be on stage singing and as soon as their voices come in I get goose bumps - especially on the more 'country' sounding songs," she said.
Tickets for the show are available from the club's website, blacktown.workersclub.com.au
