Method describe their music as ‘rootsy acoustic groove’. Built on the skeletal combination of amped up acoustic guitar, drum kit and vocal harmonies, Bill Jacobi and Frank Corby deliver a rhythm driven roots experience with a lyrical heart, encompassing elements of blues and funk, with a strong sense of folk and roots tradition.
Their 4th album Tales From The New Frontier was released in February 2015 and is a rootsy, honest and down to earth collection of songs that reflect the joys and perils of everyday life set against the backdrop of the extra-ordinary times in which we live.
As seasoned sidemen, Bill and Frank have collectively shared the stage, studio and tour van with the likes of Floyd Vincent, Gangagang, Warumpi Band, The Bondi Cigars, Goanna, Chris Wilson, Neil Murray, Shane Howard, Kevin Connolly (USA), The Stiff Gins, Babalu, Tim Gaze and Dave Debs.
Together they make music that is an eclectic amalgamation of swamp/roots, alternative county and hillbilly funk; that somehow manages to look back at a wealth of musical tradition, have a good poke around and then turn it into something both original, contemporary and quintessentially Australian.
Method continues to tour sporadically on the East Coast of Australia. Check out the tours page for details.
