Maurice love parties. Especially yours. You'll find them anywhere between giant festival stages, tiny pubs, secret house gigs, and your mum's place. This year's highlight was the closing set for brand-new Beyond Festival in Canberra, alongside musical greats Blue King Brown, Katie Noonan and Archie Roach. They're still coming down from that one.
Singer/keyboardist Caitlin O'Reilly and drummer Tim Evans took time off in 2015 to tour 9 months with American gypsy band The Underscore Orkestra. Now they're reunited with double bassist Mike Collins and some serious musical chops.Watch out for a big release in early 2016! Til then, the band will be giving back to the scene that got them started - playing shows in their hometown of Newcastle, Australia.
After 3 years, two singles and several celebratory national & international tours, Crazy Old Maurice's debut EP The Empty Glimmer landed in November 2014.
