The Orient Royal Mail
The Orient Royal Mail formed in October 2014, initially playing songs by singer songwriter Jade Flynn (frontman), With the addition of Phil McDowell on drums, the band started writing brand new original tunes.
The origins of the name come from an old leather suitcase (now a kick drum) that was once aboard the Orient Line Express from the UK to Australia via exotic Africa and the mysterious Orient.
The band’s style of music was stripped back, bluesy, folk with innovative use of percussion and guitar looping. In 2016 the band evolved into its current sound with Bassist Dave Fabien joining Jade and Phil to form a trio, giving the band a grungy groove edge – “fluid and with emotion these guys will rock your socks off one minute, and soothe your soul the next.”
