“I found myself smiling for the whole set and when I turned around I noticed the whole audience doing exactly the same thing” – Richard Moffat (‘Way Over There’ & ‘Incoming on RRRfm’)
“The ReChords…..a band to look out for” – Aunty Meredith (Meredith Music Festival, Victoria)
"One our favorite Melbourne bands in recent times. Great musicians, great songs, great showmen. Its western swing, hillbilly, country - pure rock n roll. A refreshingly deep take on American roots rock usually occupied by forgettable haircut bands." - Woody McDonald (21st Meredith Music Festival - Festival Booker)
Not what you would typically expect from a stripped down trio. These lads have a full sound for Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar and Upright Bass but it’s the 2 and 3 part harmonies and varied lead vocals that give this band it’s individuality and punch. Known for their live performance energy on stage and at times, hypnotic melodies and infectious rhythms. The song choices are as eclectic as the members that write them and it’s what gives the band it’s uniqueness and sound which if needed would be perhaps placed under the Americana label. Even the occasional covers chosen seem to fit like a hand in a glove with their own original tracks which are influenced by Old Timey Hillbilly, Bluegrass, alternative Country, Traditional Rockabilly mixed with hints of the classic vocal groups of the 60’s and even a twist of pop vibes.
The trio have worked hard since 2009, building quite a strong local and evergrowing overseas following, performing in the realm of over 450+ shows. They thrive in a small pub or feel just as comfortable gracing the festival stages, like Falls Festival, Meredith Music Festival, Gympie Music Muster & the Wave Rock Weekender to name a few. They’ve completed two successful European tours, one in 2011 and the other in 2013 which both consisted of about 10 shows including 2 major roots festivals each tour. With their overseas tours and constant online promotion and exposure they have followers in Spain, Germany, Austria, Nederlands, UK and many states throughout the USA helped them win the Best Roots/Country EP Category 2014 on the Independent Music Awards website with their 4 track EP titled ‘It Won’t Be Long’.
Their discography includes 2 full albums, most recent being their ‘Live Rechording’ released in early 2015, along with a couple of singles and a 4 track 7 inch Vinyl ‘Bottom Of The Barrel’ released on Spanish label, El Toro Records in 2012. Back in 2014 they also released a professional Music Video for their Single ‘Don’t Know Much’ which, as of May 2016, has over 87,000 views on Youtube.
Where to now? ……keep an eye out.
