|Bio||The Appointments meld reggae, rock, soul, and roots into a flavour of their own. The quartet are constantly evolving, distilling infectious grooves and melodies into uplifting music to bring people together.
Rhys (Guitar, Vocals) and Eli Love (Drums, Vocals) have been playing music together all their lives, this project sees the brothers creating music direct from their deepest influences. In mid 2019, former housemate Kurt Speirs (Bass) completed the trio and the band continued molding their catalogue of jam sessions and ideas into groove laden, harmonically inspired tracks. 2021 has seen Duncan Brown join the band as percussionist, adding a worldy, funk flavour to the bands sound and dancefloor-fill-ability.
In a true DIY spirit, ‘You’re Welcome’ and 'My Mind's Eye' were written, recorded, and mixed in their bedrooms. The energetic tracks found glowing reviews and spent time on top of the Roots charts of Triple J unearthed and featured in the Top 5 of the overall Unearthed Charts.|
