Artist biography

Live performance new comer Matt Cattanach, Adelaide Blues scene stalwart Bas Tijdhof (Mighty Night Owls) and man of many bands Tim (on Bass) Seeley bring you their dreamy blend of alternative folk with a dash of blues.
With a FOOM 2020 finals appearance, release of two new singles, and a major role in a 2021 Fringe show this enigmatic trio wield rich storytelling, whimsical chord progressions, punchy alternative 12 bar, and intricate finger style guitar to animate the stage with improvisational flair and unadulterated joy at making music together.
While you might hear echoes of Nick Drake, Radiohead, and Iron and Wine, this alternative folk trio are inspired by a much broader musical palate to bring you something truly original.
