Liam Gale is a writer, musician and collaborator from Sydney. While his music vaguely fits the mould of country, blues and roots he borrows heavily from less traditional mediums: namely rnb, Motown, 70's prog and psych. The Ponytails are a collective that layer and arrange his work, currently featuring tenor sax and bass clarinet of Cameron Barnett (aka Charcoal); the magnetic harmonies of Anja Leszinsky and Rosie Jackson; and the electric guitars of Jack Perry, all bound together by the drums and bass of Neel Shukla and Jimmy Moore.
2019 will see the release of the Desire Lines, a concept album inspired by countless journeys between urban and rural New South Wales. From this collection two singles have been released: the jazz blues of 'It's Alright, Speak Nice' and the country chug of 'Mountain Man, Lake Lady.' Other works in progress include the Flood and Fire, Liam Gale's solo album, and another as of yet untitled Ponytails album.
