Current Australian GBOB winners, Inakin, are a four piece rock band from Sydney comprising front man, Josh, on guitar and vocals, Buddha on lead guitar, Matt on bass, and Aaron on drums. After their scintillating performance in the GBOB final at the London Astoria last December, Steve Lillywhite, producer to U2 and Dave Matthews, approached Inakin to pass on his praises.
Inakin have supported such Australian icons as Jimmy Barnes and The Little River Band, plus Thirsty Merc, The Radiators, Diesel, Mental As Anything and Jenny Morris. They write clever lyrics packaged in a mature sound which is best heard live to fully appreciate their collective sonic genius.
The band were represented by Mi5 Recordings UK at this year's Midem conference in Cannes, France, and by Tunetank, Mi5 Recordings and Band Radio at SxSW in Austin, Texas. On top of that, Inakin are set to perform at In The City at the end of October in Manchester, UK.
