Selk and The Bone Singers are a West Australian band who play highly original and dynamic alt-country music. The band was formed in mid 2009 by front-woman Selk Hastings, a singer-songwriter reputed for her captivating solo performances.

After just a short time of playing gigs, Selk and The Bone Singers have already opened for international artists such as Cat Power and played with some of the best WA bands including The Painkillers, Fall Electric, The Moonlight Wranglers and The Floors.

Selk has opened shows for James Cruikshank from The Cruel Sea, Canadian belle Jolie Holland, toured WA with NSW’s alt-folk prince Jez Mead, opened for Melbourne’s The Holy Sea frontman Henry Skerrit, and opened for Abbe May’s EP launch. She is also known as the female voice on The Kill Devil Hills nationally acclaimed albums.

Joining Selk to form Selk and The Bone Singers are the starry sounding guitars of Corey Osboine (The Moonlight Wranglers), Shane Osboine (The Moonlight Wranglers), bassist Sarah Norton (The Government) and drummer Rachel Wyder (The Whitlam Years).

In 2010, Selk and The Bone Singers are excited about playing many shows around Perth, recording an album mid year, and touring the country.

Here’s some things the media have written about Selk:

"Selk Hastings… seduce with their understated dreamy alt-folk... a Velvet Underground happening." By Jason Kenney, DRUM MEDIA, October, 2008

"Selk Hastings took to the stage next and brought with her a softly spoken demeanor and a silky voice. Thought provoking and simple at the same time. Not many can drop the instrumental accompaniment and simply sing a beautiful song that captivates and completely silences an audience but Selk Hastings did just that." - By Marta Wiacek, FREMANTLE HERALD

"Selk Hastings played one of her own songs next. Like a modern-day Joan Baez, she sang in a simple, slaying, drop-down-on-the-floor kinda way." - By Brett Someday, Perth E-zine
