All Our Exes Live in Texas is a fantasy draft of Sydney’s finest singer-songwriters: Elana Stone (vocals, accordion), Katie Wighton (vocals, guitar), Hannah Crofts (vocals, ukulele), and Georgia Mooney (vocals, mandolin). Combined in four-part, indie-folk harmony with mandolin, ukulele, accordion, and guitar, the Exes are a powerhouse of charm and songwriting prowess.
All Our Exes Live in Texas has had an impressive career to date. They have toured with the Backstreet Boys (USA), Passenger (UK), Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats (USA), and Tiny Ruins (NZ), not to mention Australian icons Megan Washington, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Mama Kin.
It was not until three years ago at an O Brother, Where Art Thou? show, featuring Sydney folk royalty, that they combined their musical forces. Little did they know they were planting the seeds for a folk foursome of epic proportions.
The Exes share a deep passion for vocal harmonies and heartbreakingly good songwriting. This killer combination has seduced audiences across the country and the world as they crisscrossed Australia, from the Port Fairy Folk Festival and the Darwin Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, WOMADelaide, and the National Folk Festival, not to mention closing proceedings at the Sydney Opera House for TEDx, to an audience of 4,500 creative innovators who exploded into rapturous applause.
Since the release of the group’s self-titled, widely celebrated EP, All Our Exes Live in Texas has embarked on three national headline tours, releasing singles “Tell Me,” “Sailboat,” and “The Devil’s Part” from their successfully crowd-funded debut album, When We Fall.
The Exes were shortlisted for the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition and were nominated for four National Live Music Awards. The quartet recently showcased their talents to US, UK, and Irish audiences, solidifying partnerships for future touring adventures. They also performed at the Folk Alliance International annual conference and at South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, turning heads of all varieties from industry tastemakers to music-loving legends. In short, the Exes are on fire!
