In the 1970’s, Peter Ghouse and Jamie Watkiss were playing music together. They had two sons who just would not stay away from their father’s instruments.
So continued the journey that began 30 years ago. After years of playing and jamming together, Desert Child was formed in 1995 in Broome, Western Australia. Guy & Damian, both passionate about playing guitar, decided to form an instrumental duo in which to express this passion. As their desire grew to write music inspired by everything from Blues – Rock to Jazz – Soul and everything in between, so did their involvement with other musicians, as their three albums reflect.
Damian & Guy have performed for the last 15 years together playing venues & festivals in the UK, USA, Indonesia, Malaysia, Coco’s & Christmas Islands as well as venues and festivals throughout Australia. Even Rottnest Island!
