The Hands
A band dedicated to vintage instruments and vintage recording techniques, using Hammond organ, Hohner clavinet, Mini Moog, to name a few intruments and an array of vintage microphones and tape machines to produce the fattest sounds possible. The brothers Clayton and Lachlan started playing together on the family piano as children in their hometown of Adelaide and soon were working as professional musicians while still at school. Clayton moved to Sydney and joined The Mighty Reapers and began playing with the legendary Jackie Orszaczky who he continued to play with for the next 9 years. Clayton also went on to play and record with Renee Geyer, Billy Thorpe, Kasey Chambers, The Whitlams and many other major acts in Australia before moving to New York. Lachlan then, having moved to Sydney began playing with the Mighty Reapers and started to make his own way up very quickly. Likewise playing and recording with Powderfinger, Jimmy Barnes, Billy Thorpe and others. Armed with many new songs, Clayton returned from New York and the brothers decided to form their own band. As a consequence, The Hands launched on to the Sydney scene in 2003 and have consistently built a reputation as a ?must see? live act as they work their way around Australia. It has been 4 years since the release of the first Hands album and the brothers have been busy. Clayton has most recently been touring as the keyboard player for the Divinyls. He is one of Sydney?s most in demand session players and has played on over 100 different albums for some of Australia?s biggest names. He has also built up a reputation as a songwriter having written tracks that are on albums by artists such as The Whitlams and Jade MacRae as well as many others. Clayton also spent part of 2007 as the musical director and band leader of the house band for Paul McDermott?s The Sideshow on ABC, which The Hands also appeared on. He has been playing with artists such as Jon Stevens, Jade MacRae, Guy Sebastian, Eugene ?Hideaway? Bridges (USA), Richard Clapton as well as many more, and played with Silverchair at the 2006 ARIA?s in their tribute to Midnight Oil. Lachlan Doley has been extremely busy of late, playing keyboards for Powderfinger on their 'Across The Great Divide', 'Upstairs At The Downstairs' and overseas tours. Lachlan is also a member of Aussie Hip Hop legends Good Buddha and MUSICOZ Hip Hop artist of the year 2005 as his alter ego Lucky Dollar. Recording and touring, nationally and internationally, with so many of Australia's best artists including, The Beautiful Girls, Billy Thorpe, Jimmy Little, Diesel, Karma County, Jodi Phillis plus many many more, Lachlan has become one of Australia's most popular and exciting keyboard players to not only hear, but to witness. The brothers have once again joined forces to give us ?Everything Is Wonderful? a superb recording of vintage instruments through vintage microphones, and the glorious sound of tape that recreates the fat retro sounds popularized by artists such as Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones. For this album The Hands have brought together some of the finest musical talents in Australia, culminating in a collection of soul originals performed with the cool restraint and explosive energy for which The Hands are renowned.
