Biography of the Big Old Bears

Big Old Bears

Leave the bitter cold at the door, and let Perth's Big Old Bears keep the wolves at bay with their home-spun songs of life and love.

Original members David Craft and Nathalie Pavlovic have helmed the band since its incarnation, boldly steering through the tides of change since the well-received 2010 release of the band's debut EP, 'Tales Of You'.


Having cut their teeth on the road supporting both national and international acts, and undergone changes in line-up and musical direction, the Bears, now a six-piece collective of talented local musicians, have steadily diversified their sound, culminating in their eponymous sophomore release, launched in the winter of 2012.

Although marking a new season in the band's blossoming maturity, the five track EP retains all the elements known and loved in a Big Old Bears release. Surging melodies and jangling keys meet delicate finger-picking and three-piece harmonies, marrying perfectly Craft's oaken strains with Pavlovic's honey-soaked support. With heavier guitar and deft bass lines, courtesy of Edward Smith and Caitlin Maloney, combining with John Brown's sonorous drums, and Pippa Lester's buoyant injections of violin, the Big Old Bears have truly redefined themselves without losing their inherent brand of infectious charm

Big Old Bears are:

David Craft - Vocals, Guitar
Nathalie Pavlovic - Piano, Vocals
Ed Smith - Electric guitar, bass
Caitlin Moloney- Bass
John Brown- Drums

Lazy Railways Records

Lazy Railway Records

Lazy Railway Records is a Fremantle based label created in 2010 by a band of musicians to help promote their most recent work.

The name represents the laid back feel of the old railroads that stretch for over a century into the conception and birth of the Blues. The unmistakable sound and rhythms from the steaming locomotives have been etched into generations of songs right up to this day.

Understanding the feel and characteristics of the old-timey style along with modern interpretations on the genre, Lazy Railway Records endeavour to support budding artists who draw inspiration from the pre-war sounds
