Mo Wilson & the Drivers
Mo Wilson and the Drivers hail from the fertile musical pastures of Perth in Western Australia. Fine-tuned after a couple of years playing Perth and its regional surrounds, Mo Wilson and the Drivers and are now set to release their debut album ‘Learn to Dance’, which is in store this October through Green distribution. Perth is legendary for producing some of Australia’s greatest musical talents and for its musically incestuous nature, with many bands sharing members. Mo Wilson and The Drivers champion that rich tradition, with a line up boasting members who have spent time with Bob Evans, Carus. Josivac & the Freudian Slips. Guitarist for the drivers Luke Willott is the live audio engineer for Karnivool and Birds of Tokyo. While busy juggling their touring and work schedules, the brand-spanking new album ‘Learn to Dance’ took Mo Wilson and the Drivers over a year to complete. Produced by Ben Franz of the Waifs (Kill Devil Hills/Schvendes), ‘Learn to Dance’ is the long player follow up to their debut EP ‘Like Water Will’ (2006), which garnered a healthy amount of airplay on Perth’s RTRFM 92.1 and on community radio Australia-wide. Like all great Perth bands, their sound is transient. ‘Learn to Dance’ fearlessly traverses the genres; it captures the band’s lounge rock sound and combines flavours of classic pop, blues and soul. It’s light; it’s dark. And now it’s time to share it. The first single ‘Mona Vale’ is doing the rounds on radio across the country, making it onto the play lists of triple j, rtr fm (perth), 3rrr (melb), FBI (syd), 4zzz (bris) and high rotation on numerous community stations through AMRAP. The first EP release and the live reputation of Mo Wilson and The Drivers has earned the band some prized stage-mates in The Drones, Josh Pyke, The Mess Hall, Dan Brodie, The Vasco Era and Birds of Tokyo.
