On releasing his debut album "Artisan Hill" in 2006, Handasyd Williams effortlessly created a niche in Australia's modern folk scene. After more than a decade of playing in rock bands, his amazingly congruent songwriting and unique voice created interest everywhere the album was played and his intimate live shows won over more fans still.
After roughly a year of gigs since their inception, Handasyd Williams' Alt-Country rock band, "The Brother's Primitive" have now released "Ironsight"
The Brother's Primitive are essentially a bunch of ex-rockers now consumed with playing Alt-Country in it's purest sense. They adhere to the Americana "Alt-Country" ethos quite strongly, playing rough cut, contemporary songs with a distinct Country. But although the instruments are all of "southern" persuasion (archtops, slide, ludwigs, mandolin, fiddle) they don't always sound country, a folky ballad here, some dirge like punkrock there, the only constant being Handasyd's unique voice, warbling some very unique and congruent melodies with a definite darker hue than your standard country hokey or blues drone.
Members: Handasyd Williams, Rhys Webb, Simon Messner and Brent Balinski.
