The Little Lord Street Band makes "music that crosses all boundaries - it's music for pure enjoyment" (Jake Wilton, AAA Backstage 2018).

They're the WINNERS of WAM Best Country Act for the second consecutive year - and winners of the 2018 WAM Song of the Year (Country), topping off a mammoth 2018 with a triumphant BIGSOUND showcase and an extensive national touring schedule in support of their third EP.

To see the Perth five-piece live is to understand the crossover appeal of their country-pub folk-rock amalgam.Theirs is an "organically and unabashedly diverse sound, combining classic electric guitar riffery, four-part male/female harmonies, and thoughtful life-lived lyrics" (Madelaine Stegman, Scenestr 2018). It's a raucous, electric live show based around the songwriting partnership of Natasha Shanks and James Rogers, and also featuring acclaimed alt-country and indie-pop singer-songwriters Belle Harvey and Michael Savage, and drummer Alex Magaw (The Volcanics).

James and Natasha's duelling, duetting lead singer dynamic is reminiscent of classic Johnny Cash and June Carter; punctuated by
the occasional jaw-dropping emotionally resonant acoustic number and all backed by a brash, justifiably confident band comprising five of Perth's most respected players.

In their four years together, The Little Lord Street band have released three critically lauded EPs, toured Australia, and garnered significant national airplay on ABC Country, Double J, Triple J and community radio - racking up nationwide AMRAP Metro and Regional Top 10 singles and multiple additions to RTR FM's 'Sound Selection'.
