Forming in Perth, Western Australia, late 2014, brothers Callum Robertson (Lead Guitar) and William Robertson (Bass) joined with long-time friend Lewin Riddell (Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar) to begin a new musical project. Releasing their Debut EP ‘Things That Aren’t Real’ in March 2015 saw the band growing a steady fan base and wanting to begin gigging around the local scene. While studying music at uni Will met drummer Oly Gordon and organised to jam with the band. After a few shows as a session drummer, it was obvious that Oly was the missing piece in forming the band’s sound. Since then, Indie-Pop/Rock band The Encounters have been performing around Perth, had their music played on Soho Radio, London and built up a dedicated following. The band is currently playing shows and writing their second EP to be released in 2016.
