Known for their raw brand of rockin’ blues and R&B, Australia’s the Teskey Brothers first garnered attention with their live performances in the late 2000s. In 2017, they gained more buzz with their soulful debut album, Half Mile Harvest.
Formed in Melbourne in 2008, the Teskey Brothers features singer/guitarist Josh Teskey, his brother lead guitarist Sam Teskey, bassist Brendon Love, and drummer Liam Gough. They all grew up together living just outside of Melbourne and bonded over their shared love of artists like Peter Green, the Animals, Percy Sledge, and others. Initially, it was siblings Josh and Sam who started the band, busking on the street as teenagers. Later, they joined forces with Love and Gough and built a following with a string of pub gigs, playing a mix of gritty rock, blues, and R&B. They also gained valuable experience working as the backing group for singer Ella Thompson. The band eventually signed with Glassnote Records and in 2017 issued their debut album, Half Mile Harvest. In 2019, they returned with their sophomore album, Run Home Slow, featuring the single “Hold Me.” ~ Matt Collar
