Just landed on 62 TV records (Girls in Hawaii, Malibu Stacy, Austin Lace, etc.), this very young duet (19 and 20) from Bousval remained only as a bedroom secret till lately. The simple story of two big kids -not really interested in spending days in school or college- who spend their time playing their guitar and writing songs, a with a stron rock feel, somewhere between Bob Dylan, the Libertines or Violent Femmes.
After losing a demo contest on belgian alternative national radio Pure FM and receiving a true enthusiastic response, the two boys got more sure of themselves and decided to show the people what they are up to. In october 2005 they opened shyly for Saint Thomas at Brussels Botanique Club. A few month later, they are back as a support act for Belgian band Venus and The Tellers are truly another group, Ben and Charles show the arrogant talent of the ones that come from nowhere. Okay from nowhere indeed, but you have to reckon that they don’t show up holding anything in their hands…
Ben has a voice that gives you thrills as
Charles is taking care of all subtle acoustic arrangments, the Tellers fire at you with laidback ballads, melancholy tunes,…beauty.
Their third gig was at the Nuits Botanique festival in Brussels, they’ll play the Dour festival and a couple summer gigs around Europe.
They’ll have a 7-track-mini album available in june, lend them your ear… or even both…
(2) There is at least one pre-existing artist with this name, a power-pop/ pub rock group from Brisbane, Australia fronted by Damien Garvey. They released 2 albums, a cassette-only release in 1991, and CD "Flex" in 1992, and enjoyed a loyal local following.
