Busby Marou OLD
“Glorious and genuinely original – amalgams of the very best that folk inspired pop can offer. The end result is compelling and beautiful.” 4/5 stars - Sydney Morning Herald
Rockhampton boys ’s Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou’s unique blend of folk soaked pop that is Busby Marou is back for Bluesfest. The duo left everyone grinning from ear to year in 2012 as the crowd left knowing they had seen something special; a shining example of the talent emerging in Australia right now.
With rave reviews from media and industry heavyweights alike the pair have worked hard to earn themselves a reputation for their soaring harmonies and beautiful catchy songs. This brilliant combination landed them a record deal with Warner ’s indie imprint Footstomp Records on which they produced their first album that debuted at #24 on the Aria Album Charts and went gold within the first month.
The 2009 Deadly winners are hard at work on their next album and will be joined on the road with their band this time around, giving this unique, intimate duo another layer to build into their signature sound.
“The overwhelming feeling that emanates from BUSBY MAROU is joy. The voices and close harmonies are as clear as Queensland sunshine, and the acoustic guitar playing of both men is both accomplished and expressive.” 4/5 stars – The Australian
