The Perch Creek Family Jugband have anthropologists baffled. Why did they turn out the way they are? Was it because they all drank and bathed in the muddy waters of Perch Creek from birth? Was it because they were forced to sing for each meal, or simply because their old man was nothing short of a lunatic? Either way, circumstances conspired to create a band of siblings with an incredibly unique and diverse sound that seems to find it's way through the cracks between a vast array of genres.

Like the creek itself, the Perch Creek Family Jugband are at times raging and relentless and at others placid and haunting. Featuring five lead vocalists whose voices combine in sublime harmonies over instrumentation as diverse as the trombone, frailing banjo, washboard, double bass, overdriven blues harp, musical saw, tap dancing and a whole lot of other stuff including, of course, the jug. I guess there was something in the water.

Reaching to musical depth’s far beyond his years and a way with the guitar that can only be seen to be believed. Daniel Champagne often sounds closer to a three-piece band than the young singer songwriter guitarist that has established himself as a renowned performer in his homeland Australia and now around the world. With a reputation on his instrument of choice firmly established, recent descriptions of the live show state ‘A prodigy playing like no-one could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art’ (BW Review, NZ) and ‘The best young guitarist in Australia’ (IFC President). Daniel’s guitar playing runs from the instruments soul to way outside of its box. His Signature explosion of 2-hand tapping, body percussion and fiery runs in a swag of different tunings can be expected. As can the jazzy finger picking and tasteful improvisation of someone that first picked up the instrument at seven years old and as it would seem hasn’t put it down since.
