Formed in Sydney, Australia in late 2008, Ramshackle is a distinctive four piece Rock/Punk band comprising lead vocals, two guitarists, bass and drums.
The origins of Ramshackle began on opposite sides of the world as four musicians in Australia, England and China were honing their crafts.
Jared Montgomery and James Wall met at high school in the Sydney Northern Districts, both taking music as an elective.
Tony Austin’s family had arrived from England when he was 9 years old, settling in the Sydney Eastern suburbs.
Rehearsals in 2009 resulted in the guys realising that they had an aptitude for song writing and this, coupled with a unique chemistry and friendship, has become a fundamental element of Ramshackle.
Drummer Jack Gao joined the band in 2013, having arrived from China only two weeks earlier. A music producer and sound engineer in Beijing, Jack's driving rhythms and production experience are a vibrant addition to Ramshackle's unique sound.
Ramshackle has continued to make a name for itself and, while priding themselves on taking a professional approach to their music and performance, have never lost sight of the reason they got together. It has to be fun. The guys are certainly enjoying their musical journey together.
Ramshackle has evolved into an outstanding performance band with a unique affinity for composition.
