The Lamplights profile has risen steadily since their formation at the end of 2009. The trio believe that great music is great music, no matter what the genre and this is reflected in their energetic performances. Ryan Gittoes (vocals), Jason McGregor (guitar)and Ashley Perrow (acoustic lap slide guitar) demonstrate an honest belief that quality songs form foundations for quality performances. Their sound has been described as an organic blend of funk and folk, served with a side of blues, sprinkled liberally with jazz and dished up with a whole lot of heart.
The Lamplights deliver a wide range of genres, sometimes sounding similar to Matchbox Twenty in one song and then delivering a folk pop number that would have Django Reinhardt tapping his patent leather shoes in the next. Providing lead vocals is Ryan Gittoes, one of Queensland's great frontmen and emerging male vocalists, whilst Jason McGregor, well known guitarist and current Australian Fingerstyle Guitar Champion, and slide guitarist Ashley Perrow provide the foundation of The Lamplights' sound.
The trio often invite special guests and may appear with up to a seven piece including horns, keys, bass and percussion in tow. Without a doubt, entertainment and providing memorable musical moments is what this band does best.
Their debut full length self titled album will be released in November 2010 and will be available at shows, on iTunes and through Cdbaby.com.
