After spending the summer playing a slew of shows including NYE on The Hill, supporting Ali Barter at The Espy, WAAX + Friends Heatwave Bushfire Benefit & more, Bakers Eddy kick off 2020 by announcing their own headline shows kicking off in Melbourne (Fri 20 Mar) followed by Sydney (Sat 21 Mar), Wollongong (Sun 22 Mar), Brisbane (Fri 27 Mar), Perth (Fri 3 Apr) and Adelaide (10 Apr).
The news comes off the back of a big 2019, including the release of two singles ‘Can’t Afford It’ & ‘On My Own’, signing to Ivy League Records & dominating the critic’s ‘best of’ lists at Bigsound Festival, with The Music gushing “everyone wanted a piece of Bakers Eddy by week’s end.” In further exciting news, the band will also be releasing another huge single in the coming weeks – watch this space.
Formed in Wellington, New Zealand when they were just 13 years old, Bakers Eddy began when three high school friends decided they wanted to do something other than skating with their time. Originally comprising of lead singer Ciarann Babbington, Drummer Jamie Gordon and Bass player Ian Spagnolo, the band quickly recruited Ian’s twin Brother Alex Spagnolo on guitar. “We got sick of Alex playing PS3 in the same room while we rehearsed, so we taught him an A chord and he was in,” explains Ciarann.
