Method is Bill Jacobi and Frank Corby. This is Australian roots music in its purest form. Method bridges the gap between Americana swamp and the Celts, evoking the journey folk music has made across the Atlantic and Pacific to end up with a uniquely Australian sound.

Bill Jacobi’s musical education began as a 10 year old in South Carolina, through the backroads of America, through Ireland and into the birth of punk in London.

Frank Corby cut his blues teeth in San Francisco, the swing of Motown etching a signature into his distinctive storyteller drumming.

Both ended up in Australia as young men and began absorbing local influences. Between them they have composed and performed with the cream of Australian folklore (Shane Howard, Neil Murray, The Warrumpi Band, Goanna, Gangajang, Floyd Vincent and the Childbrides, Stiff Gins, Bondi Cigars), and both have made their own contributions to the fabric of Australian folk history.

Together Bill and Frank capture the vastness of the great southern land. Live

Method are a powerful rhythm section locked firmly in a gravelly groove that can take the music from a whisper, to a growl to a roar, delivering a rhythm driven roots experience with a lyrical heart. This is not Americana or Celtic, it is all Australian, alt-folk played by two master musicians with humour, sincerity and a world class Method.
