The Mornington Peninsula’s C.J Commerford & The Supertones’ sound has the power to wash over your soul, sweeping you back into the essential version of you.
A celebration of all moments ‘analogue’, imperfect but beautifully human in one’s life, C.J channels this into a soulful blues rock sound written with his deep love and grounding connection to vintage music.
C.J lives for those human moments like when the lights are left flickering as vinyl spits and spins underneath the gaze of a vintage malt whisky.
‘The Supertones’ are the 5 piece backbone to CJ’s vintage soul, allowing for those human moments to be fully realised onstage and in the studio.
It’s that ‘greater than the sum of its parts’ combination of members. Guitarist Lennie Farchione, bassist Aidan Efron, drummer Alex Keser, trumpet player Dave Flynn and keys/saxophonist Sebastian Farchione together with C.J create a sonic wash ‘that feels simultaneously grounded and explorative’ (Happy Mag, 2020).
It’s this wholesome, jammy vibe, that makes every performance feel as refreshing as the last, extending an invitation to onlookers to join them in a feeling of whiskey- washed warmth and community.
From the salty seas to the quintessential Melbourne grit, their latest single ‘No Holding Us Back’ heightens this spirit with hooky riffs, sultry melodies and an undeniable positive energy, to wash away your woes and reignite the fire in you.
