Bio

My Sauce Good is a tasty Sydney-based group with Female vocals, electric guitars, and drums. Singer Laura and guitarist Dirk met at the Studio Opera House checking out a night of cool Russian music, including the mighty Vulgargrad. We decided to form our own band. So now we have My Sauce Good and we’re doin’ this thing our way, just like mister Sinatra sang… Oh yeah and its working baby, you better believe it! We play music we have labelled as ‘Continental Boogie’ or ‘International Swing’, because everyone asks us to describe our original sound. There are Cabaret-inspired drinking tunes, soulful Latin-American folksong influences, bohemian rock… My Sauce Good is fun, flavoursome and stylish with a cheeky edge: We play ‘Songs and music with influences from around the World’ rather than dreary fusion ‘World-Muzak’!. There are songs in Spanish, French, Italian and yes, don’t fret — even English. The group began in 2008 and has been going from strength to strength with memorable performances at a selection of Australian and International music festivals, hip clubs such as Venue 505, Camelot Lounge, The Basement and major theatres such as The Sydney Opera House, The Seymour Centre, Riverside Theatre, The Art Gallery of New South Wales, Warehouse Parties and even on the streets of Italy. The band is proudly promoting their self-titled cd, and a new Film-clip and new album is on the way. We cant wait! The group’s international appeal has ensured an ecstatic reception on a recent tour of Europe, playing to enthusiastic festival and venue crowds in Amsterdam, Florence, Paris, London, Berlin, Corsica, Perugia and throughout Ireland. “As their name suggests, My Sauce Good cook up a tempting array of slow cooked soulful folk, Jazz and Swing from nostalgic bygone eras…. what better way to intrigue the mind and warm the cockles of your heart, mind and belly with a generous serving of My Sauce Good” (Jessika Steiner, ArtsHub).

A slow and somber blues tune. The music puts forward a massive soundscape that takes you though dark alleyways in the middle of the night. The sweet yet melancholic vocals add to the atmosphere while also proving a bright poppy twist to the song. Very nice!

A great offbeat pop tune sounding somewhere between Siouxsie & the Banshees and Elastica. The tunes are catchy, full of energy and have a bright life to them. At the same time there is a kind of dark Gothic twist to the sound that adds a unique character to the song. Great work (4.5 stars)!

An interesting combination of sounds and styles that results in an amazingly catchy and lively pop tune. The Shadows esq soundtrack crates a colourful surfy atmosphere. On top of this the smooth French vocals give the song great charm and character! Very nice!
