While EJ Worland is originally from Australia, his sound and soul is firmly planted in the roots of American vintage rhythm & blues, soul and the timeless grooves of Bill Withers, Sam Cooke, and Marvin Gaye. His music takes no prisoners, pouring out emotions and feelings through sonic transmissions that take the listener on a raw, intimate journey filled with emotion, provocation, and personal agency. Worland’s voice may not sound “Australian” to most listeners, and therein lies the magic, as his strength and tenderness breaks boundaries and crosses oceans, reverberating on a level that transcends the tides of time. With style, swagger, and a humble sensibility, Worland’s music takes charge, grabs your heart, and drives you through a vibrant landscape filled with foot-stomping drums, heavenly hand-claps, and innovative intonations.
