Padre’s Passionate Project

Queensland band Padre never shy away for tackling the disturbing and increasing rate of domestic violence in Australia. The release of Padre’s first single Furious, a cruisey beach track, but still dealing with domestic violence. The single raised almost $1,500 for various domestic violence charities; not bad for five lads who only formed in late 2017 demonstrating their strong desire to put an end to domestic violence.

Their new single Brown is due for release on February 25. Brown tells the story about a school kid who’s left with an abusive and controlling father after his mother was able to escape the situation. Unfortunately Brown becomes a school bully himself, withdrawn and dealing with mental illness. In the end the situation with his father escalates with a tragic accident. As you will see below he last scene of the video cleverly leaves the watcher wondering which path Brown decides to take as his future.


Padre are planning to release their debut album Brown Town later in 2021.

Jacqui James

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at www.jacquijames.net
