A DE­SIRE to re­turn to their roots is what inspired mu­si­cal duo Busby Marou to em­bark on a small-scale tour of re­gional Queens­land.

Thomas Busby and Jeremy Marou have toured ex­ten­sively with their full band but last year, for the first time in about five years, the mu­si­cians went on a duo run.

“It was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence,” Busby said.

“It re­minded us why we do this.”

Fol­low­ing that tour, Busby said he and Jeremy de­cided to try and fit in a small acous­tic tour this year while work­ing hard in the record­ing stu­dio ahead of the re­lease of their third stu­dio al­bum.

“So we se­lected some coun­try towns and our favourite spots,” Busby said

“We’ll be try­ing out stuff from our new al­bum but play­ing our well-known songs too.”

Busby said he was ex­cited to play at the his­toric Paragon Theatre in Childers.

“We stum­bled upon that when we stopped in Childers,” he said.

Busby said the group had struck that fine bal­ance be­tween al­low­ing their mu­sic to evolve yet stay­ing true to their roots for their up­com­ing al­bum.

“We are open to cool changes with­out los­ing our acous­tic, sto­ry­telling essence,” he said.

“We are very ex­cited and can’t wait for peo­ple to hear the al­bum.”

Busby Marou play at Paragon Theatre to­mor­row night. Visit www.paragon theatre.com.au for de­tails.
