“Makes u feel good the way he plays that clavinet” – BOOTSY COLLINS
“The greatest living keyboard player in the world today” – GLENN HUGHES (Deep Purple)
Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, Lachy Doley is Australia’s most celebrated Blues Soul Rock Organ Player in the world today. A player who can pump, pamper and occasionally pound the most unbelievable sounds from a keyboard: sounds that are intense, ferocious and sometimes transcendent. Alongside powerhouse drummer Jackie Barnes and Bassist Joel Burton, The Lachy Doley Group are a super energetic soul/blues force like no other
Recently going viral on Facebook with videos clocking up millions of views. His unlikely blues tunes titled STOP LISTENING TO THE BLUES is now sitting at 2.9 million facebook views alone.
The Lachy Doley Group have played over 200 shows and festivals around the world since the first release in 2011 including BOSPOP NL, Blues on Broadbeach AU, Culemborg Blues Festival NL, Bejar Blues Festival ES, Donnacona Blues Festival CA, Woodford Folk Festival AU, Caloundra Music Festival AU, Atri Blues Festival IT, Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival GB, Augustibluus EE, Wine and Blues Festival PT, Kitchener Blues Festival CA, Embassy Festival NL and so many more
The group’s latest studio album LOVELIGHT (Jan 20 2017) even surpassed their previous album by debuting at #40 on the Australian National Charts the ARIAS. Their previous album CONVICTION reached #5 on the UK Blues Broadcasters Charts, #1 on the Australian iTunes Blues Charts and #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts. Along with their 3rd tour of Europe/UK plus their tour of Canada in 2017 was a huge year for the The Lachy Doley Group.
The Lachy Doley Group are a unique sound in the classic and sometimes very traditional genre of the Blues. A power trio consisting of Joel Burton on Bass, Jackie Barnes on Drums and of course Doley firing on the Hammond, his vocal screaming from the heart and the incredibly rare Hohner D6 Whammy Clavinet in which most people double take on when they realise that sound isn’t an electric guitar but a 70 stringed keyboard with a huge Whammy Bar sticking out the guts of it.
“If music storms existed on this planet, it might as well be Lachy Doley’s vocals and fiery instrumental performances you hear pulsating from cloud to cloud amidst flashes of lighting and claps of thunder” HEIDI LEIGH AXTON – Rhythms Magazine
