Sonic Scout / Bio

David and myself have grown up playing and writing music together over 20 odd years + , playing in a variety of bands, most of which never got past the rehearsal space, despite having a few years of live performances in our band Indecision in the late nineties. Jon-Hollis meanwhile mostly played by himself, with a few performances in cafe's and open mic nights back in the USA. Jon-Hollis came to Australia firstly in late 2008 and then in early 2009 to follow his heart, (leading to him recently marrying) and quickly teamed up with Dave and myself playing origionals and covers both in a short lived band and a few quiet acoustic jams. It was soon decided that we would work as a trio for the time being, using session drummers and playing bass ourselves. In August 2009 we entered into Highway 9 Studios in Ringwood for the first of a few short recording session under the skillfull production of Sean O'Sullivan, where 6 tracks have so far been recorded, with more to come in the new year. We are due back in the studio from April 2010 to continue recording our original music, this time as a four piece as we have now been joined by Ali Zaid on Bass. Ali had briefly played with us in a few short sessions in early-mid 2009, and in March 2010 he has joined with us as a member of the band. Being influenced by a wide range of sounds, we have found ourselves going in 2 distinct directions, the rock and the acoustic, but with a range of sounds in both ends of the spectrum. In future sessions we are plainng on including electronic and other elements into our music to basically move beyond particular genres of sound, into a creative freedom, where we can simply go wherever our inspiration leads us, without ideological stylistic restrictions. We would like to make our music our profession and get back into performing live, and look forward to working with others in the industry in the near future. James
