Brett Gedge has been blazing a trail through major venues all across the country recently with his unique solo project The Derby Dolls.

Gedge has been recording and performing as The Derby Dolls for the past two years and has no intentions of slowing down any time soon.

It all began initially as a recording project where Gedge began composing songs using stringed instruments and multiple vocal layers and now he has taken the project live.

Over the past couple of years Gedge has performed at The Basement, The Illawarra Folk Festival, Panthers, The YoYo Bar, Gasoline Pony, The Duke (Adelaide) and lots of little pubs around Sydney.

“The idea first started as a recording project, I gave it a ‘band’ name, then stumbled into doing it live,”  Gedge said.

One of the original songs Here Comes the Sun was recently chosen to be in Jango Radio Station’s Independent Summer 2017 playlist and after listening to the tracks myself, I can see why he is getting raving reviews.

Catch The Derby Dolls live at The Yo-Yo Bar in Wollongong supporting Paper Moon and The Blues on Friday, October 20. Visit Spotify or iTunes to grab a copy of the album.
