Anyone we have met on our journey



THE SETTLEMENT are a band of brothers from regional Victoria that rose from the beer soaked “pub” scene of South East Australia.

They have released music each year since forming and have been touring Australia relentlessly earning themselves the reputation of a gang of reprobates that live to play, on and off the stage.

2017 was huge for THE SETTLEMENT with the release of their debut album Stand In The Middle which realizes their potential as songwriters and recording artists.

"Partnering the song’s sombre focus with the strained stretch of violins and vocalist Adrian Calvano’s elongated, bluntly-delivered lines" - RollingStone Aus

“a rollicking slice of tunage” - The Brag on "She's Alright"

"Here, The Settlement successfully dump tired country music tropes to welcome everyone in for a drink." - The Music on Stand In The Middle

"The band’s roots in folk is clear, but they’ve projected a great amount of evocative punch with this single that indicates The Settlement’s move into some great alt-country territory." - The Au Review on "She Feels Like Home"

2017 also represented their first foray into International touring as they showcased in LA at YouBloomLA and NYC at Mondo Festival. They will spennt a month in the US during September and October making believers out of a whole new territory of potential fans.

THE SETTLEMENT believe so hard from the stage that it's impossible not to feel the same from the audience.

Nice production. I like the voice. Musically sounds a little flat.
