Bay band Dogwood Crossing has three songs in top 10

HERVEY Bay band Dogwood Crossing is rocking the national music scene with three songs in the Triple J Unearthed song chart Top 10.

Lead singer Tim Earle was thrilled when the band first made it to the chart but is blown away by the latest success.

"A couple of weeks ago our song Little Birdie debuted at number 22 in the charts," Tim said.

"Then we decided to upload another two songs called Fight and Silence."

"When the turnaround came on Sunday night we were blown away when we saw we had spots three, four and six (Little Birdie, Silence and Fight)."

Tim said he first heard the news on Monday morning when the band's guitarist rang and asked him to check his emails.

"There was a lot of interest from new fans, requests for interview with different music magazines and our distributor as well offering us another three-year exclusive distribution deal as well."

The band, which has been writing songs since 2009, also includes co-founder Damien Veness on guitar, Richard Butler on lead guitar, drummer Jason McNabb and Chris Shevelling on bass.

With a sound Tim describes as "straight Aussie rock, with a few ballads thrown in", Dogwood Crossing hopes that support from the community will see them take their music a step further.

"We would absolutely love the locals to get behind us and request us on Triple J to get us to No 1."
