“This bloke tells it like it is, with guitar driven rhythms & heart breaking lyrics, he brings fresh air to the Alternative Country Rock genre, bringing even the burliest blokes at the bar to tears.” – Cliff (The Cliffy Davis Goodtime Band/Black Pony Express) Dick Digby - Attempted piano at the age of 6, made it through 1 year, quit... At age 14 however he borrowed $60 from a brother, bought a bass guitar & re-entered the world of music, performing covers, & a few originals he’d written, with other like minded students. But after losing all other band members to other schools, he struggled to find an outlet… In 1997 he formed a jamming band, playing electric guitar, with a short stint at Battle of the Bands (Maryborough's 1st) as the opening act, they only succeeded in driving half the crowd away (video footage as proof)... Dick then went on to write a great deal of impassioned solo work & transferred from electric to acoustic guitar. Struggling to find a voice he took an extended trip north, playing at random pubs & open mic nights along Australia’s East Coast, until again settling back in Victoria… After a year focused entirely on his vocals, he made the decision to finally expose himself (musically of course), and after a few solo performances at Ballarat’s “Karova Lounge”, common sense prevailed seeing Dick & fellow musician, Dan Carman, forming the dynamic duo of “Princess G & the Boy Jesus”… The duo went on to have a great deal of success in the local area, supporting & occasionally headlining for such bands as: The Red Cents; Black Pony Express; Jasmine Eyes; Mark with the Sea; Scar Tissue; Two Pence; Josh Murphy (Now of “Them 9’s”); Josh Haire (Now of “Them 9’s”); Nathan Porter & more. They relocated to Brisbane, but lifestyle choices caused distractions & for a time they went their separate ways… Eventually both parties returned to Ballarat where, due to the passing of a close mate, the two collaborated again as “Slappy McDermott”, displaying a more aggressive/up-tempo style to their music. With only limited success & failing to draw a consistent drummer to complete the band, both agreed it was time for a break… Now, 2 years on, Dick & his guitar, are back! With a ‘stronger than ever’ desire to play live & new recordings to show off, what will the future hold??
