Woodlock comprises of three members; Kiwi brothers Zech and Eze Walters on guitar/vocals and their mate Bowen Purcell providing the percussion. Zech, Eze and Bowen formed a strong friendship after meeting whilst travelling overseas, from there, Woodlock was born.
They relocated to Australia and after a short stint of writing and playing the trio bought a caravan, fixed it up, somehow got it registered and took off on an adventure up and down the east coast taking their music with them to the streets of both rural and capital cities.
After captivating crowds in the streets they found themselves in a recording studio and before they knew it they had an EP in their hands, titled ‘Lemons’. Woodlock have worked hard to perfect the sounds crafted in the studio to a live setting. Focusing on strong, energetic and creative live shows to take their performance to the next level.
Now based in Melbourne, the boys have gained some great recognition and created a strong following from tirelessly busking at every corner of the Melbourne CBD.
Woodlock released their second EP titled ‘Labour of Love’ in 2014, produced by Wayne Connolly (Josh Pyke, The Vines). ‘Labour of Love’ made it into the top 100 in the ARIA charts as well as charting on iTunes. They’ve also sold around 25,000 EP’s independently. To celebrate, they took off on a huge tour across the country selling out three Shebeen shows in Melbourne and selling out rooms all the way up the east coast including Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane.
The boys have just finished recording ‘Sirens’ with Andy Mak at The Grove Studio’s in NSW, and also have a huge tour to boot. 2015/16 is setting up to be the year of Woodlock!
