"Pickett's major strengths lie in his ear for melody and harmony, with the breezier songs like The Mystic's Trip and Thank You Where Did You Go? backdropped by weighty, sumptuous vocal arrangements.” - Sydney Morning Herald
"Slightly creepy, strangely soothing, and entirely enthralling, Jethro Pickett’s latest offering Gene is your golden ticket to the world’s most twisted chocolate factory." - Happy Mag
Maverick songwriter/producer Jethro Pickett crafts beguiling, off-kilter recordings, moored by charming melodies and spools of 24-track instrumentation. Currently based in lutruwita/Tasmania, ‘Run’ is the prince of freak folk’s next single. The track and accompanying film clip (Housden, Rusanow), are out 21st of April, 2023 on Phill Calvert’s Behind the Beat Records.
The track marks Pickett’s first release since his Australian Music Prize nominated sophomore album, France.
"If you’re in need of an album to soundtrack the beauty and absurdity of life, look no further than France. This is a record enriched by odyssey, intrigue and above all – uniqueness." - Happy Mag
"It's music with its roots far back in time, delivered with a lot of personality, keeping the melodies always at the core.
So sit back and listen. Don’t press anything but play and let Jethro Pickett be the soundtrack to your life" - ifoundmusic.com
"Fleeting glimpses of Dylan, John Prine and Nick Drake float in and out of Pickett’s songs" - Goldenplec
