Embracing all things: Folk, American & Roots, Perth locals Jon Matthews & Gary Benness put good ol' fashioned guitar playing and harmony singing back in focus, performing lively and thoughtful songs in a way that lingers in tradition and is equal parts thigh-slapping and chin-stroking.
In July 2016 the duo made their mark on the local music scene with an extensive series of shows locally and in the Southwest and the launch of their Self-titled EP. Their performance at Mount Helena Alt Country Music Festival in March was so well received by punters and peers it led to a series of support shows with Perth alt-country stallwart Belle Harvey in June, and their inclusion in the lineup of Nanga Music Festival in October. Late 2016 the duo expanded their horizons to include Double Bass (Callum Morrison) and Drums (Greg Brenton) in their performance and recording lineup.
2017 is shaping up to be a big year for the band as recording of their Debut Full Length Album is underway. The first 2 singles are due for release in April and the album in October.
