S P E R B 3 R.

Four quick-witted musicians give simple, witty songs a countrified jazz-pop treatment yet somehow dodge actual country, jazz and pop. The band features songwriter Dan Sperber on vocals and guitar, Neil Watson on pedal steel guitar, Cameron McCurdy on drums and Dr Olivier Holland and double bass. S P E R B 3 R has just released its debut LP, Think On Your Feet on Rosier Records.

Neil Watson performs with Tami Neilson and has backed Michael Brecker, Diane Schur, Anika Moa, Tim Finn and many others. He recently released the acclaimed album Studies In Tubular.

Cameron McCurdy writes and performs with 2018 National Battle Of The Bands champions Blu Fish. They have just released their debut EP Schments.
