Bio

Perch Creek are a band of five exuberant and multi-talented musicians, four of whom are siblings. This Melbourne-based international touring act write and perform harmony driven modern pop/folk music with a creative energy and fearless spirit. Perch Creek will be bringing their unique sound and unforgettable live show on a national headline tour in support of their new self-titled album this June 2018. With three lead singers and diverse instrumentation, Perch Creek combine five-part vocal harmonies with folk, pop, roots and rock musical styles, all threaded together by the band’s unique five-way collaborative song-writing - a coalescence of lyrics, music and arrangement, drawing on the creative strengths of each band member and the clarity of the group's vision.

Perch Creek will release their self-titled album in April, 2018. The album was produced by renowned artist Greg J Walker (Machine Translations, C.W Stoneking, Paul Kelly, Jen Cloher) and features his trademark lush sound and quirky additions. The album presents ten diverse tracks, each one beautifully crafted and emotionally engaging. First single Mama Sings has met shining reviews and enjoyed airplay on Triple J, Double J, ABC Radio National and various local and community stations across Australia and Canada.

Perch Creek have toured from Europe to Canada, Woodford Folk Festival to Golden Pains, Edinburgh Fringe to ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks. See them perform at intimate venues around Australia this June 2018. Perch Creek consistently deliver unforgettable, high-energy shows - at moments haunting, but ultimately uplifting.

“They perform with such infectious joy. The gig was pure showmanship.”

a confident little bopper! I enjoyed this from the beginning to the harmonies flying in like sunlight in the chorus. Perch Creek are adorably good! They are literally the theme tune to your happy place, wherever that may be.
