DWT Bio (2011)

)) Drive West Today

DWT is Joshua Santospirito, whose guitar has quickly become one of the most unpredictable instruments in the country: sometimes a weapon to be feared, at other times a scrumptious ear-tickling feather. Sitting somewhat uncomfortably somewhere between sound-art and jazz, Santospirito has been speaking with his own excitingly unique and ever-evolving tongue for many years now.

DWT has also been a collaborative project over the years, including musicians: Jnine Stanton (Alice Springs) and Nadine Kessler (as part of Silberhรถrnli from Hobart) as well as visual artists such as – Christopher Downes (Tasmania), Mimi Leung (Hong Kong), and Anthony Magen (as part of MONA FOMA 2010).

Formerly known as boy Brightlulb, DWT has performed to enchanted, horrified and enraptured audiences all over the country since 2005, and even as far abroad as Berlin in 2008 with another tour planned for Europe in the pipeline in 2012.

Originally from Melbourne, Santospirito has spent much of his adult life living in various deserts and cities of Australia but is now based permanently in Hobart, Tasmania from where he plans world domination.
