Original Songs, Blues and Juke Joint Boogies.
Troy Wilson and Aaron Gillett are a Melbourne acoustic blues duo specialising in acoustic roots and blues music with resonator guitars and harmonica. Wilson and Gillett have been playing together since January 2014. After a break in 2018 their paths crossed again in late November of 2020 and by May they had performed over 25 shows throughout Victoria before the Melbourne lockdowns kicked in again.
In late January on Australia Day of 2021, they recorded their first album together called “Dog House Blues” with 5 original songs and 7 acoustic blues covers. The title song Dog House Blues was written in lockdown by Troy Wilson with a blues twist from a hounds perspective of being in the doghouse. The album title art is based on Aaron Gillett turning up to the first 2020 gig with two broken arms after being tripped up going down the back steps by his dog “Muddy Waters” named after the Chicago blues singer.
From the dog house to lockdowns and having both arms in plaster, a new Australian blues duo has officially arrived on the scene.
