ETS Trio launch their debut EP, Time, at Rodney’s Bait and Tackle on 16 March with support from Matt Cal and Mystic Rebellion.
They say that the best musicians are the ones who emerge from the streets of Fremantle, Western Australia. Musicians like Kevin Parker, John Butler and the AC/DC legend, the late Bon Scott, just to name a few. Freo’s latest musical offering to the world is ETS Trio, fronted by enigmatic troubadour, Etienne. His was a one-man outfit for quite some years before the three-piece incarnation came together after a chance meeting with drummer, Ollie, in the surf at Kalbarri’s legendary Red Bluff break back in 2014. Joined a year later by bass player, Jay, ETS Trio now features Etienne on vocals and lead guitar out front of a groove-based outfit.
On his approach to making music, Etienne said, “If it feels good and you enjoy it, then do it. Don’t let anyone stop you. Keep improving and fine tuning your skills, don’t stop learning and creating.”
Sage advice for those starting out, or even those still aiming to be overnight sensations 25 years in.
