Bio

Au Dré is a collaboration between Producer/Keyboardist extraordinaire JamBau (James Bowers) and Vocalist/Trumpeter Audrey Powne. The two will be familiar to Melbourne music lovers as resident members of Sex On Toast, The Do Yo Thangs, True Live, Clever Austin, The Vaudeville Smash and many more. The pair was bought together over a shared love of maximalist electronic music by the likes of Pomrad, Lone and Hudson Mohawke and an equally affectionate passion for late 70‘s/early 80’s Disco/Dance music from Herbie Hancock and Chaka Kahn and lesser known gems like Donald Blackman and Cameo. In an attempt to fuse together these two infatuations Au Dré deliver the perfect combination of a contemporary “banger” with the sophistication and energy of old school funk and R’n’B.

Much is made of the music of the 80s as tongue in cheek emotional pastiche but let me tell ya, this is gonna make you feel things. For real.

you've put a heap of styles in the blender and come up with this delish smoothie. it's got a fun, sharp edge to it as well to differentiate it from the rest.
