Bio

Australian indie Folk outfit The Gypsy Scholars are starting the new year in the best way they can, by releasing new music. “Cold Hands” is the first single off their forthcoming debut EP and is symbolic of a more refined and mature sound for the band. With the talented song writing of lead vocalists James Kelly and Conagh McMahon-Hogan, The Gypsy Scholars have taken years of shows, travel and mateship and concentrated it into a release that is consistent with their story telling style, yet reveals a steady progression in the curation of their music. “Cold Hands” sees Conagh take the main vocal role; his unique opera trained voice seamlessly transitions between conversational country like verses, to belting out powerful climaxes. To help celebrate this first release off the EP, the band are playing eight shows along the East Coast of the country, taking their high energy and captivating live show to major cities and towns over January and February.

Hard working band here and from the sounds of this new single they've achieved a very full folk-rock sound.
