Bio

Huckleberry Hastings Is a blues folk inspired singer songwriter hailing from his most recent hangover. Huckleberry Hastings has moved crowds with his unique voice and heartfelt lyrics at venues all over the sydney circuit. El Rocco Room, Melt Bar, Newtown Hotel, Oxford Art Factory, Sandringham Hotel, The Soda Factory, The Excelsior, Brighton Up Bar, and The Basement have seen Hastings play over the last two years with a variety of sets and performers. His debut single "Exorcism" debuted at number 47 on the Triple J unearthed charts, quickly weaving its way up to number 14 overall. In early 2013 Huckleberry Hastings teamed up with producer Chris Rollans, and members of Doc Holliday Takes The Shotgun & Psychlops Eyepatch, and ventured to a small studio on top of a mountain in Crookwell to record "Huckleberry Blues" . "Huckleberry Blues" is rife with agony, passion, frustration and love, and at points teeters on the brink of psychosis. Forever ready to collaborate and share his music wherever he stumbles, Hastings is not an act you will want to miss when he stumbles upon you.

A dusty little jam here. Nice to see that cool kids from the big smoke can feel like sad and weary salt of the earth-type bluesmen too.
