Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 album from the Australian songwriter and musician, best known for his work as leader of Not Drowning, Waving and My Friend the Chocolate Cake. Wake is classic solo Bridie - 11 original songs (and one Hank Williams cover) of shifting moods, textures and sound oddities, harnessed into perfect finality by Bridie's unfailing knack for an infectious melody, evidenced in the album's first single already gaining wide airplay, 'The Shortest Day of the Year'. Marita Dyson of Melbourne band the Orbweavers lends her serene and steady voice to tracks including the dreamy, beautiful album opener, 'Dr Seuss Is Painting in the Sky'. Black-eyed Susan's singer Rob Snarski fulfills Bridie's long-held desire to record with him, lending his honeyed tones to the strident ballad, 'Old Lovers'. Other guests include former Powder finger guitarist Ian Haug, NZ artist Eden Mulholland, Ashley Naylor (Even, Paul Kelly Band), leading lady of the Bamboos Kylie Auldist, PNG-born singer Ngaiire, drummers Dave Folley and Michael Barker, long-time collaborator Helen Mountfort on cello, and guitarist wunderkind John Phillips.
