Overdrive is a semi-acoustic ensemble but with the body and sound of a full rock band. They can shred it on guitar or sit back in a groove and play with brushes, thus offering one of the most diverse ranges in music due to their talent and passion for music and performance, whilst also leaving behind the huge decibels a traditional band would generally emit.
Playing some of the greatest rock, alternative and pop hits from the last few decades, Overdrive is a lot of fun! The band’s lead vocalist, Lindsay, has been described as one of the most formidable singers in the NT. She offers the skill to belt to the likes of Phil Anselmo or Adele, or sit back and offer the smooth sounds of Norah Jones – there is little she won’t do and loves doing it!
Overdrive further comprises the professional and technical skill of their guitarist, Stuart, and the natural rhythm and feel of their drummer/back up vocalist, Paulie, to create a premier rock ensemble. Each member has a unique musical journey, which extends from vast experience in the pub rock scene to tertiary study in opera and jazz – there are decades of experience between them.
The members of Overdrive’s greatest pride is in the quality of their work! However they do so without pretentiousness and aim to make every gig enjoyable and fun for their audience.
