Bio

It’s like someone gave them instruments and told them if they keep on playing, one day they’ll be Rock Stars.
And truthfully, they probably will be. FasterLouder.com

Tracksuit originally formed in the USA by Steve Hensby (guitar/vox) who was studying a professional music degree at Berklee. Since then Steve has been around the block playing with Nick Littlemore (empire of the sun) in the band Silver Scene, played mandolin on Steve Poltz new album, and bass for Phils Finest Hour (pre Dirty Secrets) to name a few! But in late 2007 it all came full circle back round to Tracksuit, with a new line up – Jay (drums) Trav (bass) in a new country – Australia!

Since conception the band have played 100+ gigs and have supported the likes of Owl Eyes, British India, Yves Klein Blue, Kav from Eskimo Joe, MTV Kickstart finalists in 2008 and they rocked JJJ's One Night Stand after party in Collie!

Tracksuit released their second EP - Where Have All The Good Times Gone? Which was launched at Mojo’s, Fremantle,WA on the 12th February to a sold out crowd, the tracks got some love on triple j and community radio stations across Australia, including recent no.1 in Amrap’s Airit Rock Charts!

Following a showcase at the Fuse Festival in Adelaide these boys have got the music industry’s ears pricked and standing to attention.......leading to three BIG shows in NSW in July 2011 courtesy of The Harbour Agency.

Tracksuit released 5 singles between August 2011-June 2013. All of which got into the top 10 in the American College Radio charts. Their singles Classy Girl and Beat up Radio had plays on Triple J and all the tracks were played on Community Radios around the country score a top 5 placing on the Amrap Airit charts.

In January 2014 Tracksuit start work on there first full length album consisting of completely new material........ stay tuned!
