Multiple ARIA-winning South Australians The Audreys are without doubt one of the finest roots acts this country has produced. At the band’s core is the duo Taasha Coates and Tristan Goodall, who first met in Adelaide before forming the band in Melbourne in the early 2000s. Coates’ distinctive voice and Goodall’s multi-instrumental work both compliment the subtle songwriting which has made its way onto Triple J, ABC regional and community radio stations for nearly a decade now.
Fixtures on the festival circuit, The Audreys’ live show is fleshed out by a larger band, but exudes a warmth and gentility that would be at home in the most intimate of venues. They’ve also gained a reputation for their stage banter, known to be amongst the best in the business.
On Sunday January 24, The Audreys venture to Elsternwick’s Flying Saucer Club where they’ll be joined by special guest, Gippsland’s Harry Hookey (who you may have seen opening for Kasey Chambers on tour in recent years). The show forms part of a loose set of tour dates for the band, hinting that a new album may be in the works.
