Artist Proof played at Melbourne - Autumn 2012
Time on stage: SAT 8.40pm
The artist proof is essentially the first satisfactory print that defines when an artist determines a plate 'finished' and ready for printing in a full edition
The 'Creatures of the Night' EP represents the band's first Artist Proof.
Artist Proof is the writing duo of Chris Pattenden and Drew Schapper. The song-writers create cinematic, visually rich music that is deep in emotion and aural drama. The pair met at school, and after trying their hands at a range of different musical projects, eventually teamed up in 2005. They make no excuse for the fact that they create sonic landscapes that are genuinely different combining ethereal high vocals, sweeping orchestral swells, epic drums and powerful, emotional piano lines.
They wear their influences on their sleeves, but use bands such as Queen, Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Muse as constant sources of inspiration, rather than relics to be plundered, ripped-off and repackaged.
Chris and Drew pour their hearts and souls into Artist Proof and care deeply that people get to share in what they create. The pair personally invite you to open your ears to something that is genuinely new, a sound that is steeped in the traditions of the past but taken in strange and exciting directions, to come and share something we all have in common: the love of music. Enjoy.
