The Seabellies

Indie /Alternative /Experimental

Formed in mid-late 2005, the Seabellies have built upon the already-considerable reputation of their frontman, Newcastle singer/songwriter Trent Grenell. Joining him on stage is younger brother Kyle, along with Antony Martin on piano and keyboard, and guitarist and bassist Eddie Garven. The most recent additions to the line-up are Sean Kelleher on drums and Stephanie Setz, rounding out the band and taking on the toys the player of viola, metalaphone, melodica and keys. Swapping instruments throughout the set, the bands onstage presence is akin to bands like Architecture in Helsinki, Broken Social Scene and the Go! Team those who refuse to be boxed into the traditions of four beat rocknroll.The Seabellies have established themselves within the Newcastle and Sydney music scenes, playing at venues such as The Hopetoun Hotel, The Annandale Hotel, Rebel Rebel, Excelsior, UTS and Bar On The Hill. The 'Bellies have also supported artists such as Augie March, Something For Kate, Evermore, Dan Kelly And The Alpha Males, Shane Nicholson, The Fyreflyes, Expatriate, Peregrine and Andy Clockwise. In 2006 the band won both the University of Newcastle band competition and the Newcastle Music Week Industry Showcase. They were also finalists in the Xpozay band competition in the same year.
