Tony King and Kris Ralph are " Beautifully Mad "
Tony King and Kris Ralph produce acoustic music at it's best, from the hauntingly beautiful in the vein of Luka Bloom, to the exotic tones reminiscent of Cassandra Wilson to the wild Hendrix spiked Acoustic guitar and dirty New Orleans exhilaration of a 7 piece band possessed.
Ex Canberra musician Tony King has recently returned from touring Europe as lead guitarist with Andrew Strong (The Commitments singer) He also co-wrote Strong's last Platinum Album.
Others may remember him in his early days as the bass player from Madam Pat Thompson in the original lineups that played Tilley's in the Mid 80's
Kris Ralph's honey soaked and soulful voice complete the duo up front.
Kris has performed with Russel Crowe and Christina Amphlett and "brings all her theatrical experience to her mellifluous vocals-do I sound like a fan? I am."-Kerrie Biddell (Australia's finest jazz singer)
The band line up is arguably the one of the best in Australia.
Hamish Stuart on Drums ( Renee Geyer, Marcia Hines, Jack Orszaczki)
Brendan St Ledger on Keyboards (Wendy Matthews, Marcia Hines )
Greg Royal on Bass ( Rat Pack, Wendy Matthews)
Craig Walters on Sax - Arguably Sydney's finest sax player (played with everyone)
Louise Perryman on Backing Vocals This charismatic singer/songwriter has echoes of Laura Nyro, Minnie Ripperton and Anita Baker."
