Huckleberry Swedes Debut Album "Suburban Dreaming"
produced by Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil)
available from May 4 2009,
Huckleberry Swedes are a five piece outfit hailing from South Australia. With BJ Barker on drums, Sam Willoughby on bass &vocals, Richard "The Judge" Coates on keyboards &accordion, Mark Elberg on guitars, banjo, mandolin & vocals and Troy Loakes on vocals & guitar. This band of experienced players have rightly developed a name as a great live act.
The ‘Swedes live shows are delivered with an intense heart and soul that has seen them invited to spend the last year criss-crossing the Eastern States to perform at some of our finest music festivals, including Byron Bay Blues & Roots, Apollo Bay, Gympie Music Muster, Fuse, Tamworth and the Robe Village Fair, as well as performing their own tours.
Sometimes alt Country, sometimes Soul, Huckleberry Swedes are artists with voices that join in the ups and downs of our time. Songs about the love of fishing, pies, and sweethearts, songs of protest, underdog anthems and melancholic musings baked in a crust of roots, rock, folk, soul, Australiana and Americana. They’re a band that asks questions about who we are, and what our place is in the land.
Huckleberry Swedes touring Nationally to promote their Debut Album "Suburban Dreaming", available from May 4 (Jedi Day) distributed by Vitamin Records.
