  More Info & Reviews  

Exeter Groove are a drum and guitar duo playing the essence of blues with a strong groove factor. Their slide guitar and demanding drumming rhythms will require something of you, whether it be gyrating dance moves or a more traditional toe tapping head nodding feel, you will enjoy this wild and happy ride.

 Dave O’Leary fronts the band as singer song writer, he has been the driving force behind Exeter Groove since its birth in 1999 in the misty gullies of Exeter in the Southern Highlands NSW Australia. Dave’s deep and resonant voice, his rack harmonica and laconic song style create a rich sound and his thinking man’s lyrics and hooks are drawn from influences as diverse as Son House, Leo Kotke, R.L.Burnside, Bruce Cockburn, Little Walter, The Cruel Sea, Bob Dylan. With all the above influences Dave's songs have a stong link to the roots of the blues whilst sounding refreshingly modern and conected to this time and space .

 Dave Sell former drummer of Big Black Train, lyricist and composer in his own right, brings a strong and exotic edge to the music. His singing and demanding drumming style ads an element of groove that drags the remnant crowd onto the dance floor. Combined with O’Leary’s wild rhythmic guitar style and wailing slide and harmonica, the Groove takes on a personality of it’s own.

With the masterly influences and production skills of Shane Pacey of the BONDI CIGARS, Dave and Dave cut a energetic album, suitable for the road or the dance floor. Shane displayed his bass and lap steel skills as well as adding extra percussion, knocking sticks and backing vocals. Blended with the two Daves contrasting vocals, laconic lyrics, get up and groove guitar, drum and bass rhythms, this is an album that really has an honest and “Human Touch”. Recorded in the Raw Hide Studios at Tallong NSW.

Shane Pacey …brings a wealth of experience to the trio. For over 16 years he has fronted the legendary Bondi Cigars as lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter. The band and Shane individually have received many awards and accolades and were nominated for an ARIA in 2003.

 


 

 “Rare to see such texture and real heart welded together so seamlessly. This music; sounds old and wise, yet it’s as fresh as spring rain… what does a person do with that? I find myself screaming for more on the inside and smiling like a child on the outside.”

 "The Human Touch cd says it all. Exeter Groove have done it again & tapped into music that will keep you hooked. They’ve come through again with a cd you’ll have to have. Great beat & music from a group of top musicians. The Human Touch will be played regularly on my Spirit of the Blues show. Congratulations on another fabulous cd."

Wendy Rudin, Spirit FM 92.3 Spirit of the Blues

 


 

"This latest album by Exiter Blues is with out a doubt their best yet. It has a great hard driving beat all through it. If your of the school of thought that a good band has their own sound (like I am), then they have done it. The songs all have a destinctive Exeter Blues Groove sound to them. No matter fast or slow. Great mix, great sound. Well done Dave and the boys. This album stacks up with the best of them out there. Tight musicians producing an unbelievable mix of riffs, beats and lyrics! "

Col Ray Price

 


 

" So many good songs on this CD. My main picks are; Futures So Bright, Ain't Always Pretty, Shake and Groove and the haunting Desperate Man. This CD just keeps coming at you. "
