What a VIDEO!!!!!!

My friends at MUSICLIVE4U captured an amazing moment of Whammy Clav + Fuzz Wah Action at Broadbeach Blues Fest. I just can't believe how well it turned out.

Adam Church on the Drums, Tim Curnick on the Bass and Myself on Clav and Vox. ENJOY!

Blues On Broadbeach was incredible!

Still on a high from Broadbeach Blues festival. What a huge time we had there this year. Playing my biggest show under my own name ever. We got there on the friday evening and went straight into work mode setting up at the ENVY hotel. Getting the Hammond C3 up a few stairs was a bit of a bitch but always worth it. Absolutely packed in there. I was a little worried in might turn into a 'requesting bad covers' fest. But instead I was able to do my usual show, Ballads and all. In fact it was amazing to see so many people singing along. Bloody Awesome!!!

The next gig was the absolute highlight of my career. It was Saturday afternoon around at 2:45pm when we hit the Main stage at Blues on Broadbeach. We started of with a big crowd and by the end we had over 3000 people watching and cheering. Completely SOLD OUT of CD's. Can't believe I only packed 40. Rookie Error. (If you did miss out you can click here to buy one )

We were also lucky enough to have Sasha and Louri from MusicLive4U come down with 7 cameras and film the entire thing. So stay tuned to see these clips. I'll be letting you know about them as soon as they go live :-)

Great to catch up with DIESEL and play with Eugene Hideaway Bridges, Kevin Borich, 8 Ball Aitken, Owen Campbell and Phil Emmanuel as part of the Guitar tribute show

THANKYOU everyone for coming along and thanks for saying hi. Remember you can get my DVD and CD as package for only $30 HERE at the moment. It all goes into the pool to make the next one. 

 

Live at 303 (AUDIO ALBUM ONLY) is now available on iTunes

It's been almost a month since my LIVE AT 303 - DVD came out and I'm absolutely stoked to tell you that you can buy the concert as a traditional audio album.

 

 

BTW: The DVD launches in Melbourne and Sydney were amazing. I'm constantly surprised and inriched by how much you guys give to me when I play. I try to give every performance everything fucking thing I've got. But what I get back in return from you is double. So thanks so much!

I've also a few festivals coming up if you feel like making a trip outta of town. Firstly the Broadbeach blues festival in may. That was my absolute highlight from last year. Then later down the track we have the PEAK (snowy mountains music festival) and more to be announced soon.

Love ya

Dutch Courage

It's been an exciting couple of weeks with more ahead!!

Thursday night saw the night of nights for the independent, do it yourself musicians of Australia. It was a great fun night giving us little bit of glamour usually reserved for the mega celebs. The Lachy Doley Group got there early and walked the red carpet with high hopes of bagging a MusicOz award but alas it was not to be. We had nine songs in the running and came away with only a sore head and some fun memories. We backed up the awards by playing a set at the after party which was held in The Marquee and was a serious blast. I must amdit it had been a few hours with a few beers in the tank before we got on stage. Not sure how good it was for the audience but the band certainly had an awesome time with it peaking at the end with me pushing poor Adam of his drum stool. Good Times!!!!

Looking forward to playing the Wickham Hotel this friday in Islington/Newcastle it's always a beauty and they seriously make you feel so welcome there :-) Then off to Adelaide and Perth for the last of the Day On The Green shows with Bernard Fanning!!! 

Which leaves Queenscliff Music Festival and Adelaide Deep South Festival left in November but we'll talk about them more later.

Hope you're all great and see you soon xxx

MusicOz Awards, Darren Middleton, A Day on the Green

So I'm right in the middle of my SOS tour but I'm still managing to squeeze in some more biz with some friends and other events

This will be a big week for me. First up I'm performing a track with Powderfinger guitarist and writer Darren Middleton on Channel 10's wake up tomorrow morning. We'll be playing "Let Go" from his debut solo album TRANSALTIONS.

Then thursday night I have 9 songs in the MusicOz awards and will be performing at the after party at the Star. What a fantastic and important event for us independent music makers. The organises have gone all out to make us feel appreciated this year and I can't to frock up and walk the red carpet :-)

Friday I've a last minute show booked at the Wharf At Wagstaffe on the central coast. It's a great night out and a superb location. It's BYO too so go nuts :-)

Then sat I'm back with Bernard Fanning for another DAY ON THE GREEN show. This time in the Yarra :-)

You know. Things ain't too bad right now.

Love you all and see you soon.

S.O.S. reaches the second most played BLUES and ROOTS album in Australia for September

Happy to announce that S.O.S. and reached the number 2 spot on the Oz Blues and Roots airplay chart for September. Thankyou so much to all the wonderful radio presenters who have been supporting me. Without you guys we would have chance :-)

What an amazing tour so far!!!

Well the tour is almost over and it's been a serious ride. All the shows have been amazing and it's been great meeting so many wonderful new people as well as some Facebook friends. Have covered a lot of miles driving the Hammond and Clavinet around the country but it's been more than worth it. Big thanks to everyone who's helped me out in the tour. Jan Bangma, Byron Goodwin, Adam Church, Samuel Cope, Joey Cope, Jackson Raine, Simon Meli, Rhythm Section!!

Last thursday we filmed and recorded the show at Melbourne's 303 and will be releasing a DVD hopefully soon. It was a ripper of show and am so excited we captured this tour live :-)

We've got a few more shows as part of the tour so I hope to see a few more of you in the next month. Big Love! Lachy

S.O.S. hits NO.2 on iTunes Blues Charts!!!

Woo Hoo. Last night. S.O.S hit the number 2 position on the iTunes Blues charts just behind Oz legend Russell Morris. It's been hovering in the top 10 all week. So if you haven't already got a copy, grab one now and maybe we can bump it up to NO.1

Love you all!!

I'm off to the Gold Coast tomorrow for more of the SOS tour BAM!!!! 

THE WAIT IS OVER - NEW ALBUM S.O.S. REALESED TODAY

Great News! The new album S.O.S. came out today. You've been hearing the tracks one by one for 10 weeks and now you can download them at itunes https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/s.o.s.-singer-organ-soul/id701064033?uo=4 and purchase physical copies from CDBABY.com (international purchases may have to wait till the sept 27 kicks over in their time zone) or at one of my live shows.

Good Times ahead!!! I'm so proud of this album and would love more than anything for you to grab a copy :-)

SOS Album Cover

Just over 2 weeks to go until you can buy S.O.S.

I'm starting to get really excited about the release of S.O.S. It's just over 2 weeks until Sep 27 when you'll be able to download it from iTunes or purchase a physical copy from CDBABY.com. The feedback for all the tracks has been overwhelming thus far. I've already had 1000's of listens of the new tracks and I still haven't posted them all up yet. My little homemade clip for 'Jemima Jane' has gone somewhat viral in the keyboard world as it features the very rare Whammy Clav with over 1000 views within its first 2 weeks.

I LOVE COMMUNITY RADIO! So far SOS has been played by over 50 various radio programs throughout Australia and Overseas as well as the ABC's triple J which has given 'Love Blinded Fool' a wee push. Thanks so much for your support!

There are still tickets available for the very special Album Launch Show at the Vanguard on the 3rd of October. Sydneysiders, get your tickets HERE to avoid being left out :-)

Here's the latest installment from the Album for your previewing pleasure.

It's Called THE UNDERGROUND and it's easily the nastiest sound on the Album!!! Enjoy

"on a glass where your lipstick rubbed off" - STILL IN LOVE

My most requested song is now up on Soundcloud and the website. One of the first songs I wrote for the new album which has become my most asked about track. I'm so glad can finally show this studio version off to everyone. It has some of the most emotive Hammond Organ playing I've ever produced and vocal I couldn't be more proud of. Please enjoy!!

Duet with 'The Voice' favourite Simon Meli

Let me start by saying Simon Meli IS the nicest man in showbiz and I was lucky enough to have him as my Best Man for my wedding last year. We've done a stack of gigs together going back to his 'Ohh La La' days, some 'Organ In Rock' shows and more recently his current band THE WIDOWBIRDS

As soon as I wrote this track I knew it would be a perfect duet for us to do. We've both been putting in the endless hours to get our shit up off the ground and we won't stop.

The recording has a serious relentless Hammond organ grind and with soulful singing and a whole heap of passion. Also trip out! to the Whammy Clav solo.

That Whammy Clav sounds like a Lap Steel

Hey guys

I've whacked Track 3 up from the upcoming Album. It's called Jemima Jane and it's about my beautiful wife Jem. The feature sound of the track is a tremolo and delay soaked Whammy Clavinet which sounds almost like a lap steel guitar.

Check out this Youtube vid I pieced together.

The Walking Dead

Another week closer to the release means another track from album is up on soundcloud and everywhere for you to check out. Track 2 is THE WALKING DEAD. A tribute to my favourite show on tv of the same name. This track features a few special things including Jan Bangma's amazing bass playing. The whole song is based around a serious bass riff which keeps the song stable whilst everything and everyone else goes crazy. 2nd major feature is the good ole THEREMIN. The classic sound of all vintage horror soundtracks. The moment you hear it come in you'll know :-) So grab you headphones, turn off the lights, Hop into bed and turn it up for 4 minutes of intense HORROR

New Album Finished S.O.S. Singer Organ Soul by The Lachy Doley Group

 

New Album Finished. - S.O.S. (Singer Organ Soul) by THE LACHY DOLEY GROUP
So excited cos I'll have the hot little things in my hand in 2 weeks but it's not officially released until Sept 27.
I've decided I'm going to put a new song up each week on SOUNDCLOUD until the release for you guys to check out. TRACK 1 is called "Love Blinded Fool" and is up there already. An upbeat soul song featuring the infamous TRAMP groove, light hearted number about being made to look a fool.
I thought this was a good one to open the new album as it features both the Hammond C3 and my new Whammy Clavinet giving it the Albert Collins treatment with some serious vibe.
Stay tuned each week for a new track and please share over facebook, twitter and so on if you feel. Any HELP would be so greatly appreciatted!!!!!
ALSO - The S.O.S. Australian National tour will be announced in the next few days!!!!
LONG LIVE THE HAMMOND!!

Mixing the record and recording a duet with Simon Meli

 

JUNE 26 2013
Mixing the record and recording a duet with Simon Meli of my new song 6 FEET UNDER 
Had a big 3 days. Sunday I went around to THE WIDOWBIRD, Simon Meli's place to record his vocals for a new song of mine called 6 Feet Under. We've done it as a duet style like Mick Jagger and David Bowie's Dancing in the street (or maybe not quite like that). Anyway it's turned out fantastic. Full of emotion and passion as always. Can't wait for you guys to hear it.
Then just yesterday we filmed a few music videos for the new album including 6 Feet Under and another which will remain nameless. We drove about an hour north of Sydney to Krypyical Photo Studios in Gosford. A great white room studio run by a mate of my drummer, Adam Church .Along with Adam and bassist, Jan Bangma, we lugged in the Hammond and the Clavinet, the drums, the bass rig and about million others things as well as outfits. Most of which never got used. Was a whole lot more fun and easier than I thought it would be. Mr. Simon Meli also came in to perform on 6 Feet Under. All in all we managed to get some great footage thanks to Gavin Owen who shot the clips. Can't wait to start piecing it together. Stay Tuned!!!!!
Album is almost done now. Just a few tweaks then off to Mastering BAM!!! Now what shall i do for the artwork??
