"this extremely talented duo is on ''the way up''!!"
- Jim MacQuarrie. Director, New South Folk Agency. https://www.tradebit.com
"The bouzouki rhythmic backings bring an entrancing unity to the overall sound while there are some striking effects from the cello."
- Bob McInnes, The Cornstalk Gazette. Review of ''In the Night'' (Sept 2004).
Part of the exciting new generation of folk-acoustica, Myriad are an energetic young duo from Sydney, Australia who draw influences for their original material from folk, blues, bluegrass and gypsy music.
Gordon and Hannah use cello, bouzouki, guitar, mandolin, stomp box, bodhran and harmonica to provide the sometimes sublime, sometimes driving instrumentation behind Hannah''s powerfully moving vocals - creating an exciting new sound that is uniquely Myriad.
Hannah Croke (vocals, cello, bouzouki, bodhran)
A classically trained cellist, in recent years Hannah shifted focus from the quartet to singing at Irish sessions. From there she extended her skills to include bodhran, mandocello and bouzouki to enhance her songwriting and accompaniment.
Gordon Wallace (bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, guitar, stomp box)
Starting out as a self-taught death metal guitarist and drummer, Gordon evolved to world/folk music via surfpunk and trance. In recent travels around the world he picked up several new instruments and influences and incorporates much of the music he heard and played in that time into his compositions.
