Combining the sounds of piano and violin to a six-piece alternative band have been the downfall to many great careers, however Brisbane up-and-comers Mosman Alder envelope the sounds seamlessly in a way that shines just as brightly on headphones as it does live.
Though the backgrounds to how the six members came together differ – as well as musical influences that vary from heavy metal to classical – they have seemingly together created a winning formula through their distinctive sound.
After the release of their debut LP Humdrum Star, recorded with Australian legend Paul Dempsey, the band have performed at major festivals, such as Falls Festival and Groovin’ the Moo, as well as performing alongside Big Scary, Augie March and Paul Dempsey.
When the opportunity to be a part of the Youngcare Benefit Concert 2015, Mosman Alder were quick to jump at the chance.
“We are delighted to find ourselves in a position to contribute as a band to such a worthy cause,” they said.
“And what a privilege to be sharing the stage with artists of such a high calibre! We feel truly humbled to be part of the whole event.”
