Known as one of Australia’s best songwriter/singers, Beautifully Mad have been entertaining audiences with their mix of jazz, acoustic, blues and folk. Kris Ralph and Tony King are said to possess James Taylor’s beauty, Dave Mathew’s energy, some of KD Lang’s sweetness, Cohen’s lyrical spice and be washed down with Waits-like humour.
King can entice listeners with his music playing capabilities, ranging from the wild spiked guitar playing of Hendrix and the exotic tones Cassandra Wilson was renowned for. On the other hand, Ralph’s rich voice and impressive skills as a nylon string guitar player complete the duo and add to their success. Beautifully Mad was further brought into the limelight in 2009 when King won the Australian Songwriter of the year, presented by the Australian Songwriters Association.
