Live and ready with the new 3 piece band ‘Jake George and the Investigators’ are Jake George Debono (Vocals + Bass), Russell Bannister (guitar) and Alvin Garin (drums)

The band will be performing tracks from the Heart EP, released on Spotify in July 2019, as well as tracks released individually and new material. Written by Jake in the early months of the same year, ‘Heart’ features 6 tracks of hard funk and elements of soft rock and pop, with sounds similar to the Stone Roses and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. A few other individual releases were brought out in the later months, then came the idea of playing the songs live, the first step being to form a band. After meeting Russell through an online advertisement, then came a few jam sessions and the two instantly clicked. The struggle to find a drummer took its toll in the following months, however by the end of the year Alvin Garin had made contact, and after a few rehearsals the three piece was ready to go. The first show being a backyard New Years Eve show in front of 20 close friends.


MDRN LOVE have achieved a lot in their short career, having released their debut EP in 2017 under the guidance of decorated Australian Producer and Mix Engineer Greg O’Shea, who’s worked on multiple platinum albums and live concert recordings with a stack of iconic Australian performers, International Touring Artists and the very best of the Canadian Indie scene. Their EP was mastered by multi Grammy Award winner Adam Ayan who’s also worked with some of the biggest names in the international music industry. 

MDRN LOVE’s debut release is a skilfully crafted musical roller coaster that blends punchy guitars with a hint of new age synth and transitions cleverly between songs, culminating in a deceptively exciting collection of music that truly showcases the band’s versatility.
