The Amy Meredith fire was lit when singer, keyboardist and songwriter Christian Lo Russo
found common musical ground with local guitarists Joel Chapman and Cam Laing and bassist
Wade Osborn. Enlisting Queensland-born drummer Kosta Theodosis, the creative spark
spread like wildfire.
With an eclectic love of music, from The Beatles to The Cure and The Smiths, the quartet
found their feet in synth-driven melodic rock that would evolve over the years but retain a core
sound all their own.
Over six weeks at The Grove Studios on the NSW Central Coast, they layed down 15 tracks,
working alongside Grammy Award-winning US engineer Brian Paturalski (Aerosmith, OutKast,
Silverchair). With the tracks laid down, the band scored a coup in securing the mixing talents
of LA native Mark Needham (Killers’ Hot Fuss, Hot Hot Heat).
They’ve supported The Bravery, Hard-Fi, Van She and played a string of headline shows
across Australia, recently touring with Evermore, Snob Scrilla and with a Cobra Starship tour
confirmed for next year.
