The Defenders
(NSW)

The Defenders’ are an ‘original music’ band & project put together by noted Sydney musicians, Ross Ward ( Guitar & Vox ) & Tony Boyd ( Drums & percussion ). The band will expand to a six-piece, to include some of Australia’s finest players. A real live music experience.
The band’s debut single ( a version of JJ Cale’s ‘Tijuana’ ) was released in April 2019 via a direct-market digital release. A follow-up EP is also now in the works, due for release in the summer of 2019.
For ‘The Defenders’ Girrakool performance in 2020, the guys have gone all out, and the line-up includes Travis New ( Gtr, Mi-Sex, Andrew Farris ), Victorian bassist and ‘Blues Roulette’ guru Ben Wicks, Central Coast keyboard whizz Brad Grimes and a ‘special guest’ appearance from the amazing Taya Chani, armed with her own CD as well.
It’s a ‘Girrakool’ exclusive, one you won’t want to miss!
