Biography

Sydney, Australia (1986 – present)

Single Gun Theory are an music band formed in 1986 in Sydney, Australia, and recording on the Canadian label Nettwerk. The band members are Jacqui Hunt (vocals), Pete Rivett-Carnac (synthesizers) and Kath Power (samplers/synthesizers). Their music combines elements of music with introspective, ethereal vocals and samples of dialogue.

They have released three studio albums: Exorcise This Wateland (1987), Like Stars in My Hands (1991), and Flow, River of My Soul (1994). In 2000, the band completed the score of the film The Monkey’s Mask, receiving an APRA nomination for best soundtrack album.

Single Gun Theory issued seven singles: “Open the Skies” (1987), “Surrender” (1991), “From a Million Miles” (1992), “I Am What I See” (1992), “Fall” (1994), “Metaphysical” (1995), and “Motherland” (1995). “From a Million Miles” featured as one of the tracks in the pilot episode of the TV series Due South and appeared on the show’ soundtrack album.

SGT composed the soundtrack to Kriv Stenders’ award-winning documentary film Motherland. Their music also appeared in the feature films The Heartbreak Kid and Reckless Kelly; and they wrote the theme music for ABC-TV’s national arts program Review and SBS-TV’s Nomad. They contributed music to numerous other film and video projects and also remixed artists for Sony Music Australia and other established labels.

    Disappointing picture selection here... Mostly just a heap of pretty below par video captures of single members. :(

    "Hypnotic" I think is the single word that describes them best. Jacqui Hunt possesses an amazing voice. Here's one American still caught under the SGT spell.

    Good band, although first record is average the next two are very good. My fave. songs are: I've Been Dying, Words Written Backwards and Man Of Straw....unfortunately they've chosen bad singles :(
