The Humbuckin‘ Pickups are a four-piece folk band hailing from Victoria. With their distinctive string accompaniment and four-part harmony, the band’s love of storytelling through music is evident in their live performances showcasing their dextrous musicianship and high-energy performance.
The Humbuckin’ Pickups bring their “Roots Drenched Folk” sound to festivals and venues all across Australia in 2023 to support their newly announced third album “Just Like Winter”. The Troubadour Foundation Award and Maldon Minstrel winning outfit build on their first two offerings with a record that is filled with imagery of rural and regional Australia, and filled with the band’s distinctive string accompaniment and four-part harmony. Wielding guitars, dobros, banjos, double bass and mandolins the quartet will draw you in with their love of storytelling through music, their humour and their four-part harmony.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in Geelong by the powerhouse Zac Barter, the CD is a raw and honest exhibit of what the band (Maxine Sutcliffe – Bass, String Parts and Harmonies, Trevor Dwyer – Guitars, Vocals and Banjo, Vinny Russell – Guitars and Mandolin, Ewan Cloonan – Guitar and Vocals) has to offer. At times gentle and conversational, at times raucous and wild, the album is an unadorned showcase of frontman Ewan Cloonan’s award-winning song writing – with debut songwriting and lead vocals from both Trevor Dwyer and Vinny Russell.
