Over the last year, we've had the privilege of watching the Half Way Records team grow and evolve their Half Way Sessions series, a now-nine-part run of episodes that see some of Australia's best acts strip back some of their favourite songs and record them straight to tape - a process that founder Luke Yeoward says "creates an environment in which an artist can be seen and heard in their most raw, unedited and personal." Across the last nine episodes, they've given us everyone from Press Club (who launched the series) and Adelaide's finest West Thebarton to Sloan Peterson, Oh Pep! and PAGAN; each episode building off the last to create a consistent set of live takes that seem to continually deliver.
Now, they welcome the next chapter, following up on West Thebarton's ten minutes of glory with their ninth episode, which features The Delta Riggs. In true Half Way Sessions spirit, the latest episode exposes The Delta Riggs at their most personal and open, showcasing the light-hearted and fun side of the band as they dive into a pair of tracks which showcase their versatility as a band, something which has really true despite the band's growth and evolution over the last ten years or so. Watch the episode below, and stay tuned for more goodness by both Half Way Sessions and hopefully The Delta Riggs in 2019.
