Performers at Blue Mountains Music Festival 2019
Perch Creek are a band of five exuberant and multi-talented musicians, four of whom are siblings. This Melbourne-based international touring act write and perform harmony driven modern pop/folk music with a creative energy and fearless spirit. With three lead singers and diverse instrumentation, Perch Creek combine five-part vocal harmonies with folk, pop, roots and rock musical styles, all threaded together by the band’s unique five-way collaborative song-writing—a coalescence of lyrics, music and arrangement, drawing on the creative strengths of each band member and the clarity of the group's vision.
Perch Creek released their self-titled album in April 2018, produced by renowned artist Greg J Walker (Machine Translations, Paul Kelly, Jen Cloher). It features his trademark lush sound and quirky additions, presenting ten diverse tracks—each one beautifully crafted and emotionally engaging. First single Mama Sings has met shining reviews and enjoyed airplay on Triple J, Double J, ABC Radio National and various local and community stations across Australia and Canada.
The band's international touring schedule has seen them complete three successful tours of the UK and Europe (2010, 2012 and 2014) two tours of Canada (2014 and 2015) as well as performing in the US and Dubai. Perch Creek have been on the bill at numerous internationally recognised festivals and venues including Edinburgh Fringe, WOMAD (UK), Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), Golden Plains, Falls Festival, MONA FOMA and Woodford Folk Festival as well as ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks.
The band consistently deliver unforgettable, high-energy shows - at moments haunting, but ultimately uplifting.
