The Teskey Brothers

The Teskey Brothers

In a world obsessed with the ‘new’ The Teskey Brothers are a soothing antidote: old souls with chest-warming anthems that rouse the spirits of the greats. Formed by brothers Josh and Sam in 2008, the group set out to honour that old school Motown sound, but equally craft it into something they could call their very own. And it’s a formula that has won the band a legion of loyal fans across the country and indeed the world.

Debut album Half Mile Harvest was a homespun affair, songs built up from a decade of busking the streets of Melbourne and beyond. A raw combination of soul and blues, the record channelled the Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa ‘67 – and propelled the band from busking the boulevards onto the biggest stages in the country. 

2019’s follow-up Run Home Slow would only further their reach, taking out three ARIA Awards that year. But it’s on stage where the band most comfortably resides: a fact manifested so memorably with 2020’s live album Live At The Forum and 2021’s follow-up Live At Hammer Hall, the latter accompanied in all its splendour by Orchestra Victoria. The Teskey Brothers returns in 2022 with renewed vigour and a resplendent new single to boot, Get Back To The Land (featuring Emma Donovan).
