Brief Blurb:

Warwick Hargreaves – Guitar / Vocals Tina Fullerton – Double Bass / Vocals

From shady riverside afternoons to balmy twilight city rooftops and late-night jam joints, Out of Abingdon continue to make their indelible mark on the jazz and blues soundscape.

Their interpretations of the greats are as captivatingly unique as they are eminently respectful. Their originals are effortlessly spellbinding, following in the musical footsteps of the greats who inspire them.

Hargreaves' guitar is deft, explorative, fearless; Fullerton is breathy, sultry, sultry and seductive; at other times innocent wisp. Theirs is an understated elegance that draws the listener in....

From their home base in Brisbane, Australia, OUT of ABINGDON have toured Europe and the UK 3 times playing venues throughout Scotland, England, Belgium and in Paris and Berlin.

Out of Abingdon are in demand and perform regularly around Brisbane and Australia at clubs, restaurants, cafes, public events, festivals, private and high level corporate functions.
