Rockhampton’s favourite sons Busby Marou had a huge 2011. They released their debut self-titled album in June. To celebrate an amazing year since the album they are setting out on the ‘I Still Don’t Believe’ tour, which comes offthe back of their first shows in the US and Canada and coincides with the deluxe re-packaging of the album.
Sometimes things just make sense. The quality of the songs, Tom Busby’s cheeky onstage presence, and Jeremy Marou’s freakish musical ability on all instruments combine to deliver a distinctly Australian way of sharing stories. Their unique songwriting brings cracking harmonies, breathtaking musicianship and a natural feel for each other’s guitars that will leave you wanting more.
Most of the Australian music community were first introduced to Busby Marou with their inclusion on the incredibly successful Finn Tribute album He Will Have His Way. Their version of Better Be Home Soon did a great job of garnering interest within the music industry, while their classic songwriting and live show had them making friends wherever they played.
Busby Marou also took out the 2009 Deadly award for Most Promising New Talent in Music and a Q Song award for their song Paint My Cup.
Tom and Jeremy are committed to taking their songs and stories to the far four corners of the globe over the next year. Make sure you come and say G’day at the Currumbin Soundlounge, Friday.
