The Settlement rose from the ashes of the much loved Buddha in a Chocolate Box.

They have released music each year since forming and have been touring Australia relentlessly earning themselves the reputation of a gang of reprobates that live to play, on and off stage.

2017 has been huge for them with the release of their debut album Stand In The Middle; which realizes their potential as songwriters and recording artists.

The Settlement believe so hard from the stage that it’s impossible not to feel the same from the audience.

The boys have recently returned from their first foray into International touring as they played in Los Angeles at the YouBloom and New York at the Mondo Festivals, making believers out of a whole new territory of potential fans.

Recent reviews give a good indication of what to expect at their show.

“The band’s roots in folk is clear, but they’ve projected a great amount of evocative punch with this single that indicates The Settlement’s move into some great alt-country territory.” - The Au Review stated.

”Partnering the song’s sombre focus with the strained stretch of violins and vocalist Adrian Calvano’s elongated, bluntly-delivered lines” - RollingStone Australia stated.

The support act, Jackie Marshall, spent her early teens sneaking into 90s Indy Rock gigs and teaching herself to play a borrowed guitar by deciphering Bob Dylan charts of songs she’d never heard in real life.

She released her Australian Music Prize shortlisted debut album ‘Fight ‘n’ Flight’, to national critical acclaim late in 2006.
