...About the Artists...
*BB & Cam*
..are a unique duo performing style-free music containing the likes of Peter Farrar and Laura Altman.
World/Jazz contemporary numbers for your listening pleasure. Straight from us to you!
The Morrisons are a raucous 6-piece string band that forge elements of alt-country, bluegrass, old-timey and folk to create a unique and contemporary Australian sound. Highly accomplished pickers, singers and multi-instrumentalists, they are a modern day string band like no other, featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass, harmonica, washboard and harmony singing.
The Morrisons have shared the stage with some of Australia’s finest musicians including Mustered Courage, The Quarry Mountain Dead Rats, Mikelango and the Tin Star, Elana Stone, Mara!, The Catholics, George Washing Machine, All Our Exes Live In Texas, Marcus Holden (Mic Conway’s National Junk Band), Luke Escombe and a host of others. They have performed at major festivals around the country including Harvest Festival, The Blue Mountains Music Festival, Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival, St Albans Folk Festival, Jamgrass, Newtown Festival and many more. They have appeared on ABC Radio’s Saturday Night Country and Fbi radio as well hosting a monthly night of country, folk, and bluegrass at Sydney’s prestigious Oxford Art Factory.
"The Morrisons proved that Sydney bands can pick with the best of them" - Timber and Steel.
"Aside from the thrashing they give their instruments, the real attraction comes from the vocal chutzpah. Harmonies of unwaivering tunefulness and genuine soul" - The Brag Magazine
*On The Stoop*
With songs about love, trains, watching TV, songs about birds, snakes, war, and the neighbours,
On The Stoop come together in a rumpus of infectious Eastern-European rhythms, exotic Tango, Balkan violence, some punk sensibility and an ever uncompromising spirit.
Romance, anguish, exuberance, insanity and a overdose of caffeine inform this collection of vaudevillian songs performed by some of Sydney’s best musicians.
A front man on the accordion, two blasting horns, a kick ass rhythm section and an addiction to dangerous, iconoclastic music drive this group.
The music of On The Stoop careers its way between some unhinged love songs, New Orleans style horn mayhem, deep, rollicking blues and manic Gypsy-swing.
On The Stoop have lately been playing all over the country, performing at The Woodford Folk Fest, in Sydney at The Factory Theatre, some fantastic shows at Qirkz with bands such as Michelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen and Waiting For Guinness.
With feet firmly planted in vaudeville, theatre, the blues and Balkan music, On The Stoop are creating music to get both your ass and your brain moving.
