Beloved pop rock three-piece HOT CHELLE RAE (HCR) finally return Down Under for the 10th Anniversary Tonight Tonight Celebration Tour in March / April 2023.
Having grown up in musically inclined households, the three came of age among the song-writing community in Nashville. Hence the foundation upon which HCR was built all boils down to really good music.
HOT CHELLE RAE – lead vocalist and guitarist Ryan Keith Follese, guitarist Nash Overstreet, drummer Jamie Follese – were always a cut above the average boy band, capitalizing on swoon-worthy lyrics for the younger set and uber-catchy dance anthems for people of any age without shame. Their skills as songsmiths are mirrored by their live performance chops, refined through years with HCR having become known for their incredible musicianship and intoxicating energy on stage.
In 2009 they released their debut album Lovesick Electric, which made people take notice featuring ‘I Like to Dance’ and ‘Bleed’. It was in 2011 that the band really took off with their highly anticipated and hugely successful sophomore album Whatever. The album featured the Triple Platinum ARIA smash hit ‘Tonight Tonight’ and Double Platinum ARIA follow up ‘I Like It Like That’. ‘Whatever’, the third single from the album, had a video clip featuring footage shot when they were supporting Taylor Swift during her Australian arena tour.
In 2015 they took a rest from the limelight, focusing on their careers as songwriters.
During this time their individual crafts flourished, inspiring them to join forces once again. Slated with a new batch of A+ tunes and sound indicative of their growth as writers and people, HCR draws on optimistic themes, a general feel-good mentality and snapshots from their personal lives.
HOT CHELLE RAE are now back and are returning to what they love and do best which is performing live to thank their fans for their continuing and endless support
