“Very Handsome Men add street cred to their cutting edge country music by researching the soul of their muse by invading the heart of Texas on a search and destroy mission of the kicker country circuit on the Lone Star State. Nipper Mack escaped from the sterile suburbs of his home land to pick and grin with Texan peers at a brace of festivals in the searing summer heat in research so necessary to soak up the history - modern and ancient - of the most popular music genre ignored by radio in Australia.
The experience of playing around camp fires with artists diverse as Rusty Wier and his offspring at the Tommy Alverson Family picnic added valuable raw material to his singing and songwriting trove. It should be apparent in the live and recorded music of Very Handsome Men as they toil in the beer, spirits and wine mines of Victorian cities and beyond.” DAVID DAWSON - Nu Country TV, Beat, Mixdown and Melbourne Herald Sun - Nu Country TV, Beat, Mixdown and Melbourne Herald Sun

Bio

Five years down the cold and lonely road we find alt-country troubadours, Very Handsome Men, cross-state, cross-country and cross international waters plying their wares, learning from and paying respect to those that have come before them. Several tracks from 2005s live album Lively at the Yak, the debut studio album We are... and latest album 'Cold and Lonely Road' have made their way to airwaves on community radio stations and specialist blues & roots programs up and down the east coast of Australia, South and Western Australia and Northern Territory. Also playing on New Zealand radio and online stations such as TossM Music the home for Texas & Red Dirt music and independent musicians.
Listening to ‘Lively at The Yak’ makes you wish you were there and goes well with whatever you’re drinking (just as a live album should.). Acoustic duo Very Handsome Men display raw, emotive, rough-edged, Regular Joe heart and soul whilst blending the stylistic boundaries of country,folk,blues and rock. Currently writing for their third studio album, making plans for some tours all over Australia, New Zealand and back to Texas in 2008, Nipper Mack and Vic DeMarco, our Very Handsome heroes will be out on the road playing in a town near you real soon.
