After roaring from coast to coast with their heart bursting live shows earlier this year The Eastern are headed back to our shores to tell some tales, scuff their boots and throw it down yet again.
Constantly on the road, The Eastern have toured and played with Justin Townes Earle, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Barnes, The Jayhawks, Steve Earle, Old Crow Medicine Show, Lilʼ Band of Gold, Jim White, Victoria Williams and Vic Chestnutt.
Their latest album, ‘Hope and Wire’ went to #1 on the NZ iTunes country chart, #2 on the NZ artist charts and peaked at #11 on the NZ national charts.
APRA Silver Scroll 2012 finalist and frontman Adam McGrath says, “we have one job, that is to play like our lives depend on it, If you’re there to see us play then we owe you, not the other way around!”.
This is exactly why the rolling, rambling, spirit-raising atmosphere they create at their live shows has endeared them to the hearts of so many.
The Eastern can hold it down in all settings for all comers, so be ready.
