Slum Sociable Bio

Slum Sociable are Edward Quinn (production/keys/guitar) and Miller Upchurch (vocals and percussion), a Melbourne duo steeped in groove, their music a firm hold on the hips guiding them left to right to left in hypnotic sway through the intersection of jazz, electronica and soul. Formed for a university assignment in 2014, their debut EP ‘TQ’ was released in 2015 too much critical acclaim. Expanding to an electrifying four piece live with Dylan Savage (Bass, Synth) and Ryan Beasley (drums).

Tracks like ‘All Night’ and ‘Apartment’ received love from noted radio stations including Beats 1, BBC Radio 1 and KCRW, also popping up on a throng of Spotify and Apple Music Playlist’s. It also saw them release a single via tastemaker label Kitsune and tour globally, with performances throughout the UK at Great Escape Festival and USA at CMJ Festival, and slots back home at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and Splendour in the Grass
