Telecaster and Tone King amp

Ok, so Andy Daniels and Andrew Tatnell are folk-blues 'guitar cases'. But if you think you'll only hear hypnotic riffs, blues-tinged licks, solos, adept fingerpicking and strong rhythms on guitar, then you're going to be surprised — TheGuitarCases can bloody well write songs. Their compositions are often introspective and range from exploring love to social, spiritual and environmental themes. Andy D's vocal delivery is impressive, being intimate and sweet one moment, to raw and powerful the next.

TheGuitarCases cd

We have released our first cd! It has twelve original songs that draw inspiration from blues, folk, country and rock.

Many thanks to Ian Blake of Blue Bear studios in Latham who has been very patient with us in the production process. And thanks to Kimmo Vennonen of KV Productions who did a fantastic job mastering, and Troy Horse for replication and printing.

Samples of our songs are available via soundcloud below. Descriptions and lyrics are here. Or watch a video of one of our songs played live at The Pot Belly or this video of our new song Angel of Death from the Canberra Blues Society including a cigar box guitar.

TheGuitarCases Band

As well as a duo, we also have a three piece band that we can pull together for specific gigs. Check out the band page for more info.
