Coming especially to Bird's Basement from New York, the group consists of Jon Cowherd on piano, Kendrick Scott on drums and bassist Ben Williams will be supporting the release of The Wishing Stones in Australia, Guarna’s seventh album as a leader. As this is their first appearance in Australia, Bird's Basement offers you this band at the average price of a local band. From $29 for a bar stool to $35 for a premium seat +booking fees.

The title of The Wishing Stones was inspired by a visit to Aruba and the Caribbean island’s Rock Wish Garden, which features thousands of stone structures that visitors have built over the years as totems on an out-of-the-way beach. “Each of these stacks of stones has a story – it’s amazing to see what people have built out of desires, aspirations and memories.”

Guarna explains: “I’d like my songs – my stacks of stones, as it were – to have a similar resonance with listeners. That’s been a goal as I evolve, to be more confident in how I convey emotion in music, whether it’s in the writing or the textures I create on the guitar. I want to get to the heart of the matter.”
