Where most bands stay well within the boundaries of conventional music genres, the Hanlon Brothers love to push the limits of musical expression. From their inception in 2012, the Hanlon Brothers have melded a wide variety of styles, cultures and genres into a signature sound that has quickly seen them carve a name for themselves on the touring scene, as well as gaining an extremely loyal and ever-growing fan base. Emerging from the ground roots underground music scene of the Gold Coast, it was their daring and unique ‘improvisation nights’ that immediately set them apart. When every performance is spontaneous and unrehearsed, and every beat and melody is constructed on the spot, it is hard to define the music that is created. Largely the Hanlon Brother’s music is described as a long series of slashes: Soul/ R & B/ Dub/ Jazz / Funk/ Latin/ Neo-soul fusion. But it is in fact the raw energy and genius of pure improvisation that truly defines them. Their signature sound evolves from a collective jam that brings together a melting pot of creative chemistry, innate talent and broad musical influences, using instrumental technique and musical language to create new melodies in real time. Consequently, no two live Hanlon Brothers gigs are ever the same. What’s more, their improvisation nights provide an ideal musical breeding ground where innovative compositions are born and tracks are road-tested and fine-tuned for later recording in the studio. As Saia Hanlon explains, “I’ll start out a new drum groove and Omar will come in with some juicy bass lines, then one by one the guys will come in with either a complimenting or bent abstract part, depending on the mood, then our singer and MC will ask the crowd for a topic or a word and we create from there.” Omar Hanlon adds, ““We basically talent scouted throughout our travels for the best of the best musicians and singers, and eventually found our definitive selection of artists to suit our style” The musically-gifted brothers have certainly had their pick of talent, having toured New Zealand, the UK, Scandinavia and, most recently, the US with a variety of artists including: popular rockers Max Judo, New Zealand Idol Mat Saunoa, Fiji Idol winner Lai Utovou and alternative rock singer Jess Day.
