Great Danes Short Info

Drawing from influences such as Wilco and Elliot Smith, four piece, indie folk band, Great Danes are based in Berlin.

Long before their fateful meeting, Chester Travis and Tim Hook shared a rich and varied musical history. The past few years have seen Chester release three EPs, score a feature length documentary and tour with Grammy Award-winning musician Kimbra. Meanwhile, Tim’s schedule had him touring Europe, accompanying singers in Vietnam and playing international festivals such as The Great Escape.

Eventually the two would meet while working together in a guitar shop on London’s famous Denmark Street. There they whiled away the days writing together and composing the next chapter of their musical adventure. Now both living in Berlin and drawing on influences such as Elliot Smith and Wilco, the country-folk duo are recording an EP together and taking a full band on the road for a series of festivals and intimate shows in Germany.
