“When a truly great band rolls around, people take notice anyway. Do I get that vibe with Albany? I sure as hell do.”- String Buzz, String Buzz (Oct 25, 2016)
“Even though I am a music lover of varied eclectic influences, bands performing live in bars has never really been included in my list of loves - until I heard Lincoln-based band Albany perform at The Rogue Saint on Friday evening!”
- Chloe West, Louth Leader (Jul 04, 2016)
“Lyrically each track is again, intelligent. They never write about corny subjects or phrase anything in a cheesy manner, instead each song sounds somewhat endearing. Why do I say this? Well each subject is personal to the band and it’s described in a way which is personal to the band. As a listener that makes me feel a connection and allows me to differentiate these guys from others; it gives the group character which again is rare for an independent act. Overall then, I really had a great time listening to this EP. Thus far this month, independent music has swamped the signed stuff in quality. Makes you think as a reviewer what our mainstream really cares about anymore. 20 years ago this group would be in the top flight, cruising through with great music, but unfortunately bands are having to sell out to get their money...”
- The String Buzz, Lead The Way EP Review (Oct 25, 2016)
Formed in 1976, their music has been described as "like a primitive Talking Heads played by people who have never heard Talking Heads."

2018 saw The Chesterfield Band hit the road in a big way. Travelling over 15,000km, playing over 100 shows, eating an absolutely ridiculous amount of bacon and egg rolls while meeting a heap of amazing people. Their debut single “Imagining Nothing At All” continues to be featured on Tiger Airway flights around Australia and their single ‘Home’ is receiving airplay on international radio stations.
2019 is shaping up to be even bigger with plans for another Australian tour and a European tour in the works. The band will also be releasing their debut EP “Early Days” in late Feb with 4 new tracks and a whole bag of goodies.
The Chesterfield Band started in the kitchen with Tess and Cam writing and singing together. They decided to enter a competition for local songwriters. They won, and with the money they recorded and released their first single under the band name “My Dad & I”.
6 months and a whole heap of shows later the duo ran into an old friend of Cam’s, Dylan. He was performing in the same music festival with another band. In a spur of moment decision the guys invited Dylan to play drums on a song and that was that, they’d formed a band.
With Dylan on drums ‘My Dad & I’ continued to play shows locally and interstate. Over the next the few months Tess turned 18, and the bond between the band members became more like a family. Everyone agreed that it was time for a name change and to start taking things to the next level. The guys set up a ‘Name the Band’ competition and decided on “The Chesterfield Band”.
Looking to expand their sound even further the band played with some great local bass players and then struck gold with Craig. He brought not only an incredible musicality to the bands sound but fitted perfectly into their unique family vibe.
Data Recovery Project is a Washington, DC-based synth duo consisting of electronic artists C.P. Kush and Daniel Warren Hill. They channel retro Hi-NRG dance beats, trenchant observations, and reflective meditations, through thier own mischievous irreverence. Data Recovery Project performs regularly as a live-tronica act combining their original songs with mixed-live video elements. They have had appeared in U.S. cities from Boston, MA, to Key West, FL, and as part of the Fort Reno Summer Concert Series in Washington, DC.
Sukh is a Wolverhampton born, Manchester based singer-songwriter and doctor. His roots in music started with his love of film scores, and as a teenager he was thrown in at the deep end when he was comissioned to compose an action movie soundtrack.
With that completed, he got the song writing bug and during his time at medical school formed several bands and started feverishly working on his solo material, exploring wildly different musical directions, inspired by cinema.
