Ep 188: Hockey Dad

Hockey Dad


Recorded by Harvey O’Sullivan & Hugh Fasher
Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Recorded at Newtown Social Club, Sydney, 14th May 2016.

Hailing from the mid-coastal NSW town of Windang, Hockey Dad are two friends conquering the world, one song at a time. Growing up in the same street as each other, guitarist Zach Stephenson and drummer Billy Fleming were two surfer kids growing up in a beach community and by 13, were jamming with Stephenson’s dad’s old gear in the garage; five years later, they were touring as Hockey Dad.

Their first EP, titled Dreamin’, was released in 2013 via the Wollongong record label Farmer & The Owl, and then spent the next three years honing their craft and tapping into the American market, where online publications such as Pitchfork, Consequence Of Sound, NPR and Paste Magazine had been taking notice. In 2016, they released their debut album ‘Boronia’, which was produced by Tom Iansek of Big Scary and #1 Dads fame, and is named after the street they grew up on. Farmer & The Owl handled the release in Australia and Kanine Records took the record and released it all throughout the USA.
