Hailing from the hunter valley, Bowen and the Lucky Dutchmen have crafted and impressive debut EP, Like a Queen. Opening track "You're Under Fire", evokes the 60s in the first 20 seconds, with bluesy riffing that unfolds into funky grooves and front man Alex Bowen chorus screams 'You've got the face of a cold woman'. Drummer Thomas Green cuts a rhythmic swathe across the EP, contributing Hammond Organ and alto sax as Tom 'Red' Atkinson plays up smart bass lines, slapping and popping on the unpredictable fan favourite "Sea of Shepherds". The EP highlight is the funky "The Come Down", featuring a brass section headed by Simon McCabe from Newcastle funk band 'Funkwit', swinging in true Stevie Wonder style. The great thing about "Bowen & The Lucky Dutchmen is that their songs dont stick to conventional, metronomic drum beats, guitar parts don't sound mapped out by MIDI and the vocals are forceful and heartfelt. Like a Queen is Unpredictable and captivating on repeat. 4/5 - Reverb Magazine

Bio

Bowen and The Lucky Dutchmen are a bunch of fresh faces from NSW Australia making waves on the Australian music scene. BTLD are the product of 2 former Newcastle band's fusing together. Originating as an acoustic root's band, these four quickly found their way to becoming an upbeat Blues/Funk and Root's sensation. For these boys, rolling up to a growing audience is becoming the norm. They recently released their debut CD ’Like A Queen’ and toured it nationally, picking up some great response and reviews backing up the fact that these guys are going places. Their ballin’ blues and funk conglomerate has lead them to support and share stages with some of the biggest names in Australian music today, and with a strong work ethic and a love of partying, these gentlemen are keen to show you how they do it.
