|Roz Pappalardo has a secret.
The Women In Docs singer has another pair of boots.
The Wayward Gentlemen involve some of the finest country players South East Queensland have to offer: Rob Sherwood (Kristy Apps Band), Silas Palmer (Daybridges, Spot The Dog, Women In Docs), Lincoln Retallack (Amy’s Bass, The Slides) and Aaron Millard (Jeremiah); handpicked from some of Brisbane’s finest drinking establishments…
Drawing on influences ranging from Lucinda Williams to Ryan Adams, Roz as a solo act melds her effusive stage presence and endearing songwriting with some good honest country- style secret herbs and spices. And a cheeky little dash of the T-hormone.
Roz releases her first solo album, THIS LIFEBOAT this month through Brisbane based Indie label Plus One Records. Able steered by reknowned producer Magoo (powderfinger, Chris Pickering, Regurgitator, The Gin Club), including some sneaky performances from Brisbane stalwarts Andrew Morris (The Wilson Pickers) and Ben Salter (The Gin Club), the album promises to be an exceptional look at Brisbane’s depth of country talent.
She’s rocked Woodford Folk Festival with this act and has left the Powerhouse Live Spark stage wondering what’s just hit them. Country rock is alive and well in the safe hands of Roz and her Wayward Gentlemen…
