What started as a jam with flat-mates over a few beers has kinda turned into a real band.
To describe GOOD OAK as organic would be a massive understatement.
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. These recordings will be released in early 2013 as their debut EP.
GOOD OAK are getting a live reputation for their determination to ensure that their audience are having as much fun as they are.
Their first single “Fill My Cup” encompasses all that makes GOOD OAK unique and is a perfect introduction.
GOOD OAK are launching “Fill My Cup” over the next couple of weeks as the main support for THE LAMPLIGHTS at their album launches.
