"unforgettable... both raucous and angelic..."
Combine four musically-inclined folk with a love of pizza, hommus, sunshine and the Indian Ocean and what do you get? Well, probably half of Freo… but in this case, The Tommyhawks.
“The Tommyhawks are not only becoming a well known highlight of the Perth music scene, but also throughout the festival scene of Australia. Along with their captivating stage presence, their ability to pivot between thunderous vibes and reflective melodies provides a glimpse into their intriguing musical vocabulary. For high energy, folk/punk/blues spliced, gutsy and hard hitting music, this is a band you need to see”
This fierce femme-fatale foursome explode with quirky, blues-fueled songs. Barely three years old, they’ve been making waves on the Australian Festival circuit; having toured the country 9 times- ish, playing St Kilda Festival (Vic); Swagger Festival (VIC) Jungle Love Festival (QLD); Meatstock (VIC, NSW) Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Festival (QLD); Narooma Blues Festival (NSW); Port Maquarie BBQ n Blues Festival (NSW); Mount Beauty Music Festival (Vic) as well as WA festivals: Nukara, SOTA, WA Pride, Hidden Treasures, Bridgetown Blues, Disconnect, Fairbridge, Wave Rock and Nannup Music Festival.
There’s a sweet spot between rollicking folk melodies and punk-infused blues; and The Tommyhawks have found it. Addison is a rare mythical creature with the voice of a unicorn; combine that with dark sax harmonies, home-made electric mandolin, super-tight rhythm and a contagious on-stage presence you’ll be mesmerized from the word go.
