THE LACHY DOLEY GROUP – BIOGRAPHY
“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.
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 4.7 million facebook views alone.
The Lachy Doley Group have played over 300 shows and festivals around the world since the first release in 2011 including Bospop Festival NL, Montreal Jazz Festival CA, Swiecie Blues Festival PL, 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 MAKE OR BREAK (MAR 1 2019) even surpassed their previous album by debuting at #1 on the Australian National Charts Blues and Jazz Charts. 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 5th tour of Europe/UK/USA plus their tour of Canada in 2019 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 of Bass, Drums and of course Doley firing on the Hammond, his vocal screaming from the heart and the incredibly rare Hohner D6 Whammy Clavinet.
“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
