Describe Your Sound

Folk and Alt Country style. When The Kill Devil Hills, Father John Misty and Peter Bibby had a group session in a sweaty back room in Fremantle the Galloping Foxleys were born.

Formation

Staff at Mojo's bar with a late night interest in extended jamming. Our first show was at the New Years Eve bash at Mojo's as a four piece rock band. We slowly let the country in, I don't know how it happened but it's lure is irresistible. We added mandolin and violin and our transformation was complete.

Influences

Peter Bibby, Father John Misty, The Kill Devil Hills, Frank Sinatra, Neil Young, The Beatles, Pink Floyd
