Feeling a bit camera shy


In Feb 2004, blues and roots muso John Loss and pop-rocker Nicole Howard got together with a mutual interest in alternative country music. After trying to piece together an obscure and diverse repertoire for a number of months, Nicole began writing her own material in December that year. With only a few basic guitar chords, she penned over 50 tunes in the following 12 months.

In May 2005 Roy joined the line up, delivering a little more bang to the sound with his electric guitar and Dobro, contributing significantly to many of Nicole’s compositions. The lineup continued to grow with Bill (double bass) joining towards the end of 2005, and was completed in August 2006 by Matt bringing vibrancy to the music with his red-hot fiddle playing.

Though the music has been described as having influences from roots, blues, folk and country, one punter nailed it when he said "It’s just bloody good pop!"

Nicole Howard is a prolific singer/songwriter who has performed in original bands in London, Boston, and Perth, though this is her first time as a songwriter.

John Loss (rhythm guitar and backing vocals) plays a variety of instruments and has performed in many well-known local blues and Cajun bands such as Tin Dog and Catfish.

Roy Bailey (lead guitar) has a long history in jazz, rock and blues. He is perhaps best known locally for his performances with Heads We’re Dancing and Billies Holiday.

Bill Lawrie (double bass) is a multi-talented musician known for his lively blues harmonica playing. He has performed with bands in Melbourne and Perth such as The Grownups, Gone Dead Train and Tin Dog.

Matt Stapleton (fiddle) has performed in many bands throughout the UK and Perth. He plays regularly in various local bands, including Press Gang Three.
