GOOD OAK – Thursday 19th September


GOOD OAK certainly turned a few heads when they sold out their first ever headline show at Black Bear Lodge. They turned a few more selling out all their shows on the first ever headline tour in May.  This success was recently rewarded and they were announced as the support for THE CAT EMPIRE on the North QLD leg of their Steal The Light World Tour.

 Stephen Ryan, Brett Gibson and Tom Busby share a house and love of the irreverent side of Americana.  Buzz is also known for his role as singer for roots music stars BUSBY MAROU.  Ryano’s music background is a bit of mystery but has become one of 2012’s real songwriting discoveries.  Gibbo has been playing harp around the traps for a while but GOOD OAK has given him the outlet to share his truly unique and powerful voice. 
While separately each of these blokes are pretty impressive.  It’s the sum of their parts that make GOOD OAK work.  Few would have guessed these three scruffy looking mates could cut such powerful harmonies. 
 Continuing their organic process, GOOD OAK made contact with Mark Meyers (The Middle East) who opened his Cairns based home studio for a very rowdy weekend indeed.  Mark has added his substantial talents to help find the core of what is special about these songs.  It really feels like he has found the heart of the matter. 
GOOD OAK have already scored coveted slots at festivals such as River Sessions, Bleach Festival, Oxford St Party and Gympie Muster. They are gaining a reputation for their determination to ensure that their audience is having as much fun as they are.
