Cutting their teeth on the streets of Melbourne’s eclectic music scene in the late 90’s was the best apprenticeship for four local musicians; Dan Hall, Tim Watson, Tim Wild and Jason Singh.
Getting together to write and record a couple of days a week the four members honed their distinctive sound.
Upon hearing the band’s demos, Seymour Stein the president of US label Sire Records immediately signed the band. Stein’s previous signings included Madonna, Talking Heads and The Ramones.
The enormous success of Taxiride is well documented. Very few bands can lay claim to have had the impact the four members had in Australia and Internationally.
Double platinum number 1 albums, 7 top 40 hit singles including “Get Set’, “Everywhere You Go”, “Creepin’ Up Slowly”, “How I Got This Way”,“Oh Yeah” and an ARIA Award.
Worldwide tours throughout the US, Europe, Japan, India, and Australia including the 24/7 fnal Tina Turner Tour culminating with two sold out shows at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Now in 2015 the original line up is back together. The amazing harmonies, the guitars, the hit songs and the unique sound that was and still is Taxiride are all there in a live show that takes you on a journey to a time where music and songs had meaning and emotion.
“When you get the four of us in a room and we sing together something very special happens. As corny as it sounds there is magic between the four of us and we have all missed it” – Jason Singh
“We set out to make great music that would last, l think our songs stand the test of time and to be playing them live again is a real treat for us” – Tim Watson
