McArdle and Barnes, based on the Sunshine Coast and Kingaroy respectively, met when McArdle played sport against Barnes’ older brother. It was that same sibling that, eight years ago, encouraged the pair to jam together and combine their formidable talents. Since their first single release 'Last First Kiss' from their debut album ‘The Switch’ in November 2016, Route 33 have featured on line ups at Tamworth Country Music Festival, Gympie Music Muster, CMC Rocks and Rockin Rocky. 'Last First Kiss' hit no.1 on the iTunes Country Music Chart and no.6 on the Aria Country Music Chart, with the film clip hitting some impressive numbers of 50,000 views in the first week. With music as effortlessly catchy as Route 33’s, crowd interaction seems a fait accompli. Now it’s time to hit the road and find all those good times that lie ahead.
