Our first album, ‘CoverStory’ is availiable from Big Rock Records

ROCKWELLS began as an acoustic country rock duo featuring Ronnie Peel (aka Rockwell T. James) and Bobby Fletcher.

Starting with two acoustic guitars and a love of vocal harmonies, Ronnie and Bobby created a spirited repertoire of country, blues and pop classics. They have released an album of their favorites (CoverStory) which climbed to #19 on the Australian Blues and Roots Charts in 2015.

Ronnie’s resume reads like the history of Oz Rock – Missing Links, Britain’s Thunderclap Newman, La De Dahs, Rockwell T. James and the Rhythm Aces, Scattered Aces with Rose Tattoo’s Pete Wells and Chris Turner, and of course Stevie Wright / John Paul Young and the All Star Band.

Bobby’s an experienced guitarist and recording engineer over 30 years. Playing in Ward 10 ( Star Hotel favourites), US blues singer/guitarist Michael Barretto (Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Frankston Guitar Festival), playing many Tamworths, and more recently JPY and Newcastle’s Sure Things.

Recently, Ronnie and Bobby have written a slew of songs and recruited their pals Warren ‘the Pig’ Morgan on Keyboards (Chain, Aztecs, Allstar Band) Grahame ‘Face’ Perkins on Bass (Slots, Bo Diddley)and Les Gully on Drums, plus a few special guests as in Chris Turner (Buffalo, Rose Tattoo) and Greg Plimmer (Swannee, JPY). Tracks are near complete and the track ‘Willie the Kid’ is out on ’35 Years of Big Rock’.
