White Summer

White Summer are the blues rock trio originating from Phillip Island, Victoria that has been tearing up Melbourne venues over the past 9 months. They manage to blend the styles of roots, blues and rock to create a unique grunge blues sound. Channeling influences from Wolfmother and the Black Keys, to Ash Grunwald and The John Butler Trio, their sound is driven by powerful resonator guitar and intriguing rhythms.  White Summer are energetic and set to entertain.  The band line-up is Jimmy Stanfield (lead vocals/drums), Michael Barnsley – guitars/backing vocals) and Kane Rowlingson (bass gutar/percussion/harmonica). We write all our own original music. The explosion of blues for us occurred in February of 2006, when the resonator guitar was discovered. Since then, the guitar sounds of the band has seen much experimentation including the lapsteel, bottleneck slide guitar and the world of open tunings. The use of djembe and conga bongos in our music has opened up many doors in the way of percussion.
