Bio

El Guapo is the creation of brothers Rob & Ryan Imlach. After 30 years of each doing their own thing, they’ve finally come together to make some of that sweet music for you all to enjoy.

Shaped by a life growing up in suburban Melbourne, Australia, countless campfire sessions in country NSW and encounters across the globe, El Guapo finds a sound built directly on a rich mixture of experience, passion and a dedication to craft. That sound features Rob’s captivating musicianship and versatility on acoustic guitar, Ryan’s powerfully raw voice, and their genetically-enhanced harmonies.

Give them listen to hear the influences of Blues, Roots, Latin & Soul.

The recording of this needs work, it's really quiet and I can't appreciate what is clearly a beautiful tune.

From what I can hear the harmonies are beautiful and the use of instruments is elegant.

I like how this tune has a bit more bite and dig to it, those incredible blood harmonies are just so satisfying.

The way that your two voices come together is spectacular and so is piano dropping into this tune - spellbound.
