A BRIEF HISTORY

Named in 2006 at "that John St flat drinksies" in Ponsonby, Auckland, the 3-piece that became Suitcase didn't start rehearsing till 2007, developing further material during 2008. An appearance on BalconyTV performing Crush saw Suitcase take onboard their alt-country genre, playing occasional gigs in Auckland from 2009 into 2010. Having now developed an album's worth of material they began recording in 2010, finally releasing their self-titled debut in early 2011, performing live-to-air on Radio Wammo at Kiwi FM in support of. From 2011 to 2012 band members have been busy with individual projects, and are collaborating on their new album and planning further local performances.



"Their music is honest, intelligently put together and an intriguing mix of old style country singer/songwriter and a modern day acoustic jam. Where this puts Suitcase on the genre spectrum, I do not know, but what I do know is that they are an enduring listen, the sort one could listen to over and over again in one’s car for a week and still not tire of"
