Southern folk rock with a side serving of blues


Theworking collective of two brothers, Rhys & Kai are joined by a third spiritual brother, Isaac. The Quick & The Dead combine elements of hard rock with a blues sound to deliver a masterpiece musical fusion. With their third self-titled release under their belt, this is an act unlike any other in Australia right now.

Self-Titled Album:

"What The Quick & the Dead deliver with their self-titled album is a 14 track journey into a beautifully crafted landscape. The music serves as the scenery, smells and emotions where the lyrics craft the characters, people, and glances from passers-by as you step through town and through the doors of the saloon. If you are craving new, original and unique music, this is a must-own."

Break It Down with Matt Carter:
"The Quick and the Dead from Australia... the instrumentation, the vibe and the music is quite different, with some ballsier lead guitar stuff that you don't hear that much, which makes it really interesting."
