Bio

You could be forgiven for thinking Perth has forgotten how to rock, judging by its polished pop acts dominating Australian airwaves, but you need look no further than the aptly named OneHorseTown to see there's a new sheriff about... From the ground up, OHT are redefining the rock trio, with baritone guitar (Sascha Ion), swampy Rhodes piano (Ronan Charles) and concussive percussion (Stuart Leach) the weapons of choice for a fat rock sound that drives without speeding and does away with obligatory guitar solos - capped with Ion's versatile, head-turning vocals.The unusual musical arrangement is highlighted on sixfeetofsnow, title track from their first full length LP, opening with a light, open feel before breaking out with more rumbling bottom end than the Titanic's boiler room, without a bass guitar in sight.The unique but broad appeal of the band's swampy, stoner sound has seen the band chosen for a wide variety of supports, including End of Fashion, Emmiliana Torrini and their forthcoming national tour with Little Birdy.Mastered by Roger Seibel (Jon Spenser Blues Explosion, Tortoise) OneHorseTown's debut album comes snapping at the heels of Information, the single that earned the band the 2005 WA Music Industry Rock Song of the Year.OHT have just signed a national distribution deal with Inertia (Mars Volta, Tortoise, Iggy Pop and The Stooges), and sixfeetofsnow will be available at all good record stores and available online at www.inertia-music.com. 2 more songs from this album have been nominated in the 2006 WA Industry Rock Song of the Year and Love Song of the Year categories. The band has just released a video clip for the upcoming single Havana,(september 2006).

These guys ROCK... Their dark, warm, luscious sounds go down silky smooth. You have to hear these guys play live, they kick it - and I have never seen or heard anything like the the rhodes, drum and baritone guitar combo - absolutely unique in australian music. Plus, sascha is dead sexy... what's not to love!

Unique sound, very groovy. Sascha's voice is one of a kind...dark, raspy, sexy. Clip for Havana is hot.
