Rock and roll has found its soul! Napier is a raunchy rock and roll band from Melbourne released their new debut single Shake! Shake! Shake! mid 2016 off their up coming debut EP Sundance Romance set to be released in November 2016.
Napier arose from the lasting friendship of front man Nelson Dore and bass player James Taylor who met in primary school. Playing in various bands for over a decade has led to them to create a distinctive sexy sound with plenty of the Napier sass and swagger! The pair were later joined by keys player Nick Dalton Bocquet and drummer Mitch Dedman- Napier the band is now complete.
In 2015, Napier brought their charismatic toe tapping energy the State Theatre as a finalist in the prestigious Melbourne Music Bank competition sponsored by the Bank of Melbourne.
Inspired by the words of Keith Richards, Napier is certainly putting the roll back in rock and roll.
"Rock band Napier were definitely the best live act of the night.”
– Paul Cashmere, News, Noise Pro
“Bringing back that 60's rock n roll groove, Napier brought it home with plenty of energy and the crowd ate it all up…They work really well together and you can tell they love performing live, bringing so much rock n roll to the table but still creating catchy radio ready songs.”
– Darcy Lee, Within the Music
