Project Description


Ablaze was originally formed by a group of mates, fresh out of high school and wanting to belt out some riff-driven Aussie pub rock’n’roll. After jamming on covers for a couple of weeks, the young blokes quickly became bored of playing other people’s songs, and the desire to write originals grew quickly. Putting together a set’s worth of material (with a few of their favourite old AC/DC and Screaming Jets covers to boot), the boys begun cutting their teeth on any stage that would take them. Soon after, Ablaze began gigging hard around town; from Friday night pub gigs and opening sets at dive bars to local festivals and headlining the renowned Espy Gershwin Room, the boys set out to hone their on-stage skills, all the while pumping out more original tracks as they went.
