In a chance encounter at an Anthropophobiacs Anonymous meeting in South-West North Korea, Joshua Calligeros, Griffin Farley and Rowan Mount met for the first time. It is said that here they discovered their mutual appreciation of the masterpiece 'A Very Gregorian Christmas' and hence decided to start a joint musical venture (however this is fiercely debated by the South Korean Immigration Dept.). Donning themselves the moniker Sincerely, Grizzly in honour of a young brown bear who took his own life amongst the political unrest of the Arab Spring, they relocated to Adelaide to play a brand of what can only be described as literature rock.
In three years together, the band have embraced every opportunity presented to them and have been rewarded with support slots for international outfit and key musical inspiration …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead (US), as well as interstate acts An Horse and DZ Deathrays, thanks to their ever-convincing live shows.
Since the release of their first single ‘21snakes&ladders’ late last year, Sincerely, Grizzly have received strong community and national radio support (the former thanks to Amrap’s AirIt), been selected to play the Adelaide Fringe opening night party as a part of the FUSE Festival and toured both Perth and Melbourne.
Moving forward, the band is set to release their sophomore EP 'Doom and Gloom' in September/October this year, with a national tour supporting The Medics, showcase at BIGSOUND Live and their own east coast tour to follow.
