Comprised of members Eddie Rawk (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Ryan Di Cecco (Bass), Troy Eckhardt (Drums/Vocals) and Rob Moody (Lead Guitar/Vocals), the country rock/pop band hails from Melbourne, with Eddie having brought the band together following his dream to perform on big stages and step foot in Nashville.
CountryTown is proud to premiere the new single, One Last Time by Eddie Rawk Band as well as its accompanying music video. Produced and engineered by Daniel Kelaart at Clique Studios in Melbourne, One Last Time poses the question “why are toxic relationships the hardest to let go of?”
Eddie explains, “One Last Time is a song about the too familiar love that we feel for someone special to us, however knowing deep inside yourself that the person is not right for you. The song addresses the emotions and intense feelings of love for a past relationship. The tension of the song comes from the desire to take a risk on a love that was once broken. Should you follow your head, or follow your heart’s desire?”
The music video features the band playing up a storm on a stage that is always a welcoming venue for them.
Eddie says, “The video was directed by Daniel Kelaart and Nick Marris and filmed at the Oak Tree Tavern in The Basin, Victoria, a favourite venue regularly hosting Eddie Rawk Band. The clip was recorded over two nights of drinking with the pub’s locals who volunteered to be crowd extras and really got into their roles”.
Eddie Rawk Band achieved success with their previous single Take Me Home (Red Dirt Road), peaking at No.2 on the AMRAP charts, and gaining airplay on stations including Australian Country Radio, PBS FM and 2TM. The single secured close to 5,000 streams in the first month of release on Spotify and now stands at over 10,000 streams. They released their debut EP My Life’s Road, featuring original songs inspired by Eddie’s life was released to all steaming platforms in 2020.
Drawing inspiration from Luke Bryan and Keith Urban, Eddie Rawk Band blend a modern country sound with an upbeat party vibe and have produced a single that is infectious.
