Since their inception in 2006, The Vignettes have been rising through the ranks of the Sydney live scene with their twisted take on garage rock and visually entertaining show impressing all in their wake. But with a sound that would give any larger band a run for their rock n roll dollars, two is all it takes for The Vignettes.

Born out of a chance meeting between Joel and Katie at a New Years Eve party, The Vignettes experimented with a number of different line-ups before stripping it back to only two. Katie, once an acoustic singer/songwriter with a penchant for heavy metal, discovered a flare behind the drum kit and once fledgling model Joel found his wailing voice and an innate talent for guitar which saw him developing new tuning techniques allowing him to play both bass and guitar lines simultaneously.

As the first Triple J Unearthed feature artist for 2008, airplay for their debut EP, produced by Pnau’s Peter Mayes, ensued. Live credentials include a slot at Come Together 08 and the first My Filthy Riot festival at The Annandale as well as supports for bands such as Cut Off Your Hands, Faker, Van She and Mercy Arms.
