Jamie MacDowell’s Hammond Combo is the new instrumental project from Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Jamie MacDowell. After selling out shows at a slew of international festivals as one half of guitar/beatboxing duo Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum, he’s bringing it home to Melbourne to give his tunes the Hammond treatment. Joined by Felix Elliot-Dedman on keyboards and Holly Norman on drums, the band is a platform for MacDowell’s lyrically acrobatic showmanship, weaving together flavours of blues, jazz, RnB, and soul, to create anthems of truth for the everyman that pack a meaningful punch. Original music dished up with elongated jams, hypnotic syncopation, tasty organ licks and a 10% chance of spontaneously breaking into a Destiny’s Child rap.
