Come see Lachy Doley as you've rarely seen him before as he launches yet another phase of an already stellar career. www.lachydoley.com + THE WIDOWBIRDS Born from a song writing project for two musical brothers... Simon & Tony found themselves Soul deep in songs that were so apparent in lives lived, lives learned or lives dreamt. In writing a collection of Rhythmic, Soulful Blues songs... the pair move forward with an invigorated BLUES ROOTS & HARD SOUL sound in 2011 in an alliance in the War against Sadness, mere SOUL-diers with a lot to say about Love. + BACKWOOD CREATURES Backwood Creatures is a Melbourne based swamp blues trio, featuring Jeb Cardwell (lead guitar, vocals), Grant Cummerford (bass, vocals) and Tim Burnham (drums). Spawned from the deepest, darkest depths of St Kilda's Espy public bar in 2004, Backwood Creatures was an accident waiting to happen. Drummer Tim Burnham and bassist Grant Cummerford were the house band in a tragic open mic night, full of butchered blues renditions and train wrecks. One sordid evening, Adelaide escapee Jeb Cardwell appeared out of the smoggy cesspit and introduced the boys to his brand of guitar driven swamp blues and soulful vocals. The trio locked in from the word go and the jam night is now a distant memory. But Backwood Creatures lives on.
