“You got to me/I’ll get to you/How long how long how long can you hold out?” “How Long”

Like Crocodile Dundee, or bands like AC/DC and INXS before them, the members of LONGREEF have come from Down Under to conquer the U.S.A. Having relocated to America from their native Sydney a little over two years ago, the band has taken to their adopted land by storm, tirelessly touring around the country, opening for the likes of Gary Allan and Seether , playing Florida’s massive DeLuna Fest with Stone Temple Pilots, 30 Seconds to Mars and Bush, winning fans at every stop.

“We’re pretty road-tested,” says lead singer and songwriter Josh Barker, who originally formed the band as Inakin in Australia with LONGREEF guitarist Nick Miller and drummer Aaron Carruthers. That group played up and down the east coast of Australia, starring in a reality TV series, The Resort, contributing a tribute song, “Without You, dedicated to noted Aussie animal expert Steve Irwin on the one-year memorial of his death as well as playing for the country’s troops stationed in The Solomon Islands to quell civil unrest there. “You don’t get as tight as we are unless you’re getting out there and performing as much as you can,” says Barker, the first of the trio to move to America, settling in L.A., where he began co-writing with Vertical Horizon’s Matt Scannell and Carmen Rizzo .
