Imagine a cross between John Butler and Pearl Jam. A fusion of folk, prog rock and grunge. Improbable as descriptions may sound, it is exactly what this band, originally from the goldfields of central Victoria but now based in the musical mecca that is Melbourne,achieve with their highly distinctive sound.
Based on the songcraft and unique 12 string acoustic stylings of frontman Brett Franke, this band put themselves together in 2006, and have achieved much since. Including a full length album release in 2010, extremely well received appearances at the Anglesea, Glenfest and Airey’s Inlet Music Festivals and gigs at The Espy and Prince of Wales in St Kilda, The Penny Black and several key Victorian, New South Wales and Queensland regional live music venues.
The band also won a prestigious Californian FM Radio song contest in 2009, which is testament to the power and quality of their songwriting.
With Slawie Burak and Justin Fagnani providing the rock solid backbone, and with a second full length album on the way, this most individual of bands are set to take their up-tempo, foot stomping tunes to the rest of Australia and the world.
“We strongly believe in our product,” states Franke proudly , "a bit unusual as not everyone is doing what we do but good songs are always going to be well received.”
