‘That combination of Josh’s timeless soulful voice and Sam’s outstanding guitar playing is an absolute winner … a sensational evening’ – entertainment-focus.com (UK)
Ever since their 2020 GRAMMY® nominations off the back of 3 x ARIA Award-winning album Run Home Slow, The Teskey Brothers have continued to garner international acclaim for their soulful, timeless sound. March 2023 saw the band embark on their first headline world tour in over three years, performing their first ever shows in Portugal, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Currently touring EU and the UK, the band recently sold-out London’s iconic Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, and next month will perform as special guests alongside Hozier and Bruce Springsteen, while Brit fans will also catch them at Glastonbury Festival too. Come August, they’ll return to North America, performing more sold-out dates at venues such as the Ryman Auditorium, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Brooklyn Steel and more, plus a return to Austin City Limits in October – before finally embarking on the long trek back home.
From performing high-profile sets at festivals such as Bluesfest, Bonnaroo and Fuji Rock, to US TV appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert… the Teskey Brothers have already cemented their status. Now, with The Winding Way, the Teskey’s have made an album that decidedly looks to a new, brighter future while resonating with their rich past.
Joining the bill for all AU dates (ex-Sydney) is Geelong-raised WILSN, who released her debut album, Those Days Are Over, in February 2023. Possessing the kind of voice that stops you in your tracks, WILSN makes classic soul music with a contemporary approach and a healthy dose of raw power. Meanwhile, fans in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are in for an added treat, the Teskeys’ joined by special guest and GRAMMY® nominee Courtney Marie Andrews. Courtney’s acclaimed 2022 release, Loose Future, sees the Phoenix-born songwriter also touring with Wilco throughout Europe this Sept. Finally, opening shows across Aotearoa is multi award-winning Mel Parsons, whose newest record Slow Burn debuted at #3 on the NZ Top40 Charts, was a finalist for Best Folk Artist at the 2023 AMAs, with its title track also a finalist for the 2023 APRA Best Country Song
Having taken their celebrated live show right across the globe already in 2023, it’s time for Australia’s finest live band, The Teskey Brothers, to return home. Fans are urged to get in early when tickets go on sale Friday 16 June… Don’t miss out!
