Bio

Spargo is Melbourne singer-songwriter Lachlan Bryan and his band of
wide-eyed alt-country troubadours. In less than two years Spargo has
completed two laps of the world, played over one-hundred shows, sold
a few thousand cds at gigs and released a critically-praised EP.

Lately Spargo's tunes have found their way onto radio, including
Australia's Triple J, and various incarnations of the BBC in the UK.

Spargo's songs have a strong story-telling element, and display a
ragged fragility and sense of romance - probably a result of a love
of traditional Irish, American and Australian song-writing. Occasionally
raucous choruses are interweaved gently poetic ditties to create a
genuine sense of light and shade. The lyrics are direct but twisted, the
themes are anything but earnest or self-serving.

Spargo's debut album, The Ballad of a Young Married Man (and other
cautionary tales) is due for release in April 2008.
