Warwick Hargreaves – Guitar / Vocals
Tina Fullerton – Double Bass / Vocals
 
 

OUT of ABINGDON have built a unique sound filtered from influences including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Burrell, Bjork and Nina Simone, their understated elegance draws the listener ... in …..

Tina’s ethereal vocals and grooving double bass accompanied by Warwick’s fearless expressive guitar sounds and husky voice creates a sensual, soulful atmosphere and stage presence that's smoking hot!

From their home base in Brisbane, Australia, OUT of ABINGDON have in 2016 successfully completed their 3rd European and UK tour playing venues throughout Scotland, England, Belgium, Paris and Berlin.

They have played well over 700 gigs together in the last 7 years, at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe, Brisbane International Jazz, Noosa Jazz and the Illawarra Folk, Gold Coast Acoustic, Gulgong Folk, Bellingen Turtle and Neurum Creek Music Festivals to theatres, clubs, bars, cafes, private and corporate functions in Brisbane and East Coast Australia, also playing as guest artists aboard P&O Cruise's Pacific Aria in 2015.

OUT of ABINGDON have independently recorded & released three albums.

Their debut ‘Journeys’ in 2011, their second CD ‘OUT of ABINGDON live’ recorded in 2012 at ‘the Basement’ Sydney and the ‘Brisbane Jazz Club’ and 2014 saw the release of their first official video ‘3 Piece Suit’ and latest CD ‘Small Steps’. All albums continue to receive National airplay and sell well at their many live shows.

Inspired by extensive touring both Nationally and Internationally over the last couple of years, Warwick and Tina have been honing their writing skills and are ready to record their fabulous new songs on a new album in 2017. Expect a September release …

In the meantime OUT of ABINGDON's passionate performances are connecting with audiences wherever they play.

 

‘Smooth and soulful jazz from this talented duo. …listening to Fullerton's warm, breathy voice is like being dipped in melted dark chocolate, Hargreaves' blues guitar is mesmerising, he plays with fluid energy, his husky voice complements hers…. creating infectiously rhythmic percussion out of their own instruments, their easy enthusiasm makes this gig a soothing, sonic pleasure.
