the-high-learys-perthWhen it comes to quick success in the rock scene, The High Learys know where it’s at. Based in Perth and formed in 2011, the band have toured internationally twice through Germany, France, Italy, Spain and England, had their singleClear My Mind chart at number one in the AMRAP charts in 2014, signed an endorsement with Vox Amplification Australia, featured in Timothy Gassen’s garage rock publication The Knights Of Fuzz and worked with Rob Grant [Tame Impala, Miley Cyrus, Lenny Kravitz].

“[I] formed the band back in 2011 with myself, my cousin Matt [Williams] and our high school friend Mike [Nutt]. We recently recruited our new drummer Mitch [Benson] and since have been writing and recording a lot of new material,” said bassist and lead singer Jamie Turner.

“I think we all really enjoyed touring Europe and playing shows back in 2013 and again in 2014. Getting to travel to so many great pockets of the world was an amazing experience. We got to meet some amazing people over there and the crowds were insane!”

They’re already working on new music but aren’t sure “if it’s going to be an Album or an EP yet,” hints Turner. He voices his support for Australia’s music scene, saying “I think Australia in general has some incredible talent to offer. I’m always finding bands around at the moment who are writing great songs and who can really put on a good live show!”
