2018 saw Esperance three-piece Grand Casual establish themselves as a trio to watch punctuated by their nomination for WAM best regional act of the year. Performance locations as widespread as Leonora on the first WAM Esperance Goldfields tour where perfectly contrasted with their appearance at The Blues at Bridgetown. With momentum building the lads threw themselves into a rigorous Summer of performance playing the Esperance Motor Hotel alongside Roobs and The Washing Line Economy. This raucous sold out evening was quickly followed by a return to the Southwest with stellar shows in the Albany Denmark region. A highlight being a stripped back performance at classy Albany bar 6 degrees.
Plenty of shows line the calendar, with a Feb 9th appearance at The Cannery Arts Centre Esperance alongside Margaret River fluid groovers Blue Child Collective. Further down the line the lads head to The Nannup Music Festival 2019 though not before a support for Little Quirks at The White Star Albany March 1st.
Grand Casuals song writing continues to develop with a blues/rock background embracing elements of hip hop, jazz and soul. Recording lies as a key priority with Grand Casual set to work with Andy Lawson of Debaser studio in late April 2019.
