Western Australia Guitar Festival 2022 Presents Padderick Henry & J.V. Rail
Sunday arvo on the verandah at Settlers Tav? Yes please!
J.V. Rail are a brand new country rock outfit homegrown in South West WA. Formed by Jon Vee on keys, vocals and guitar the band originally took their name from a train renowned for rescuing survivors in WA’s rugged outback.
“That train pulled men out of the belly of the earth – thats what music did for me,” says Jon. “It all went to dust. My mind, my health and eventually my marriage. You have this life you were so focussed on and then with a snap of the fingers, it all disappears. That’s when the music started. From the dust it worked it’s way into my dreams.”
With honky tonk piano, shimmering vocal harmonies and soaring guitar solos JV Rail conjure sounds reminiscent of Glen Campbell, Steve Miller Band and ZZ Top. Rounding out the band are Jack Grazioti on bass, Ben Clake on drums and Dave Kent on lead guitar. Together they play the tales of life through their instruments into a high energy, heartfelt sing along.
Padderick Henry is a fingerpicking solo guitarist who leans heavy on his mid 1970s model Takeharu acoustic and a much modified Fender resonator guitar to produce music that is pretty much unique in today’s scene.
His setlist is made up of his own songs as well as covers of tunes that
resonate in him and to which he wants to pay tribute. Padderick
believes that good music comes from playing for oneself initially and
making yourself happy, and if you can do that, you can’t help but sound
