Bio

Australian Indie-Folk duo, The Dreggs, was formed in 2017, made up of Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris. Growing up in the Sunshine Coast with the ocean by their feet, their music is best described as Indie-Folk and Roots, with a little coastal vibe in the mix. From train-like guitar melodies with a driving beat to smooth harmonies and enchanting finger picking, The Dreggs encompass a whole range of emotion with their music. Their music is heavily influenced by the ocean, which is a noticeable theme throughout their tracks. With two acoustic guitars, a kick drum, and a driving beat, The Dreggs find themselves writing tracks with a whole range of dynamics. Alongside this, the boys are strong advocates for Mental Health Awareness, touching on elements of mental health in their songs. Growth is a common theme throughout their music, expressing how important it is to grow and change in positive ways.
