Bio

Anyone hanging around the thrift boutiques and bars of Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley over the past couple of years will be familiar with McDermott & North as they cut their teeth and song writing chops as one of the cities most beloved busking duos. The pair posses a sophistication in their musical performance and songwriting style that has a tangible sense of the ‘60’s, while bringing a modern twist to their style. Meeting at Brisbane’s Embassy Bar in 2016, the Indie/Folk duo are made up of Paddy McDermott and Rhys North, both of whom were performing as solo artists in their own right upon their introduction at the venues Open Mic night, quickly finding a juxtaposition of vocal styles and song writing approach.

Good hearing this duo step it up to the next level with this accomplished new track. It's sustained and sweet like a slow release treacle hit.
