New to the Blues on Broadbeach scene, the well-travelled duo, This Way North, will be joining the lineup in 2020.
It’s easy to forget that This Way North is just a two-piece band. With Cat Leahy on drums and Leisha Jungalwalla wailing on her electric guitar, the duo creates a uniquely full, expansive sound that leaves the audience stunned.
Hailing from regional Victoria, they first met in northern Canada at the renowned British Columbian ArtsWells Festival.
Winning the Age Music Victoria award for Best Regional act at the end of 2018 off the back of their second EP release, This Way North has been dubbed the ones to watch in 2019.
Currently of no fixed address, Cat and Leisha are enjoying making a home for themselves on the road and the stage. Whether in a local dive bar or at a national festival, This Way North bring more passion and energy than a 10-piece band, drumming up a contagious euphoria.
The past two years have been huge for the duo, since they made the decision to concentrate on playing music full-time, they have added over 200 live shows across Australia, New Zealand and Canada to their ever-expanding resume. This Way North have brought their magic to audiences from the Yukon to Iqaluit, Nunavut to Haida Gwaii, across Australia’s sweeping central desert and down to the geysers of Rotorua New Zealand.
With their reputation for powerful live shows growing, This Way North bring their love affair with the road, and big sound music to the stage, inviting you to turn up the volume and let loose.
