BUSBY MAROU TO PERFORM IN CHILDERS
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.
