From the venue:
The Pleasures are Catherine Britt and Lachlan Bryan, both critically acclaimed, award-winning performers and songwriters. Together they bring their experience and humanity to the union, and two of the most honest and character-filled voices you’ll hear this or any other year.
It’s a collaboration that began in 2022 with a few late-night texts and quickly spiraled into a feverish week of writing and recording in Melbourne, where the pair would dream up songs into the early hours, then head to the studio next morning to lay them down.
The Pleasures get a little raucous, dirty and blues-inspired, interrupted by delicate moments of sublime country-folk. They might get called a country band, but there’s as much Jack White influence here as there is George Jones (in fact there’s plenty of both), alongside the plethora of mythologized girl-boy country acts with whom they will inevitably draw comparison.
The union between Britt and Bryan was destined to turn heads.
