The Dreggs, with Tay Oskee
What a way to kick off 2024, with The Dreggs heading out on tour hitting coastal regional Australia + New Zealand to bring good vibes and tunes to a venue near you! The Sunny Coast duo are on the verge of releasing their debut album but before they do so, they’ll be playing bangers from the new record and bangers from the past to make sure 2024 begins in style.
2023 saw the guys round it out with epic performances at Spilt Milk, Queenscliff Music Festival and NYE on the Hill as well as selling in excess of 10,000 tickets around Australia at their own headline shows.
Upon listening to Tay Oskee’s music, his deep connection to the natural world becomes unmissable. Sewn throughout his heartfelt lyrics are traces of his past, present and future. From his formative years living amongst the Yolngu people of North East Arnhem Land, to the tropical beauty of his hometown Mission Beach, Tay traverses a spectrum from chilled beach tunes to punchy folk, bolstered by his signature instrumentation.
Spending the better half of 2019 based in the UK/EU, touring with the likes of Xavier Rudd and performing at Hungary’s prestigious Sziget Festival, Tay used his time to work on new material and craft what would become the origins of ‘Caught Up In The Wire, No More’. The EP’s first single ‘Floating’ clocked over 1 million streams in its first 10 weeks after release and represented a period of adjustment and change between Tay’s coastal life in Australia and the rapid pace of settling in London.
Tay returned to Australia in January 2020, armed with new material and a growing international fan base. Before COVID-19 hit, he was due to play his largest Australian headline tour to date in March, before heading back to the UK for a run of Festival appearances throughout May/June.
With Sold Out dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in Australia as well as Festival slots at The Great Escape, Dot to Dot and Bearded Theory in the UK; things were starting to gain traction.
