In 1992, Tania Doko and James Roche formed Bachelor Girl and the duo became one of the most loved Australian acts of the 1990’s and early 2000’s, enjoying Australian and international success in Asia, Scandinavia and the US (including signing with the legendary Clive Davis at Arista Records).

Electrifying the Australian music scene, they topped the charts with their debut double platinum-selling single ‘Buses and Trains’ from their ARIA Award-winning debut album ‘Waiting for the Day’ which was also certified double platinum. The album also spawned hits ‘Treat Me Good’, ‘Lucky Me’ and ‘Permission to Shine’.

‘Buses and Trains’, which has now surpassed over 25 million streams, was a huge hit internationally and solidified Bachelor Girl as an important part of Australian music history.

After a brief hiatus to pursue their individual musical paths as writers and producers for outside artists in Sweden and the UK, Tania and James reunited to release their socially conscious single ‘Speak’, in 2018.

With their hit-studded and dynamic live set, Bachelor Girl have secured impressive support slots including international heavyweights Eurythmics and The Goo Goo Dolls. More recently, the band has special guested on widely popular festival gigs such as Day on the Green (with John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite), the Red Hot Summer tour, and can also add Icehouse to the list of iconic acts they have toured with.

2023 spearheads a significant year for the duo – the 25th anniversary of their iconic debut single and album, also culminating with a new album release and celebratory tour dates, to be announced soon.

“We are off to a cracking and lucky start to 2023. Clocking a 30 year friendship/writing team, we’ve unleashed new music, touring with our glorious band, special guested with our buddy Darren Hayes and Billy Ocean in June, and another exciting tour with a legendary Aussie band to be announced, soon,” Doko says. 

The new single, ‘Calling Out Your Name’ released in February coincided with Bachelor Girl touring with Darren Hayes on his ‘Do You Remember’ tour in stadiums around Australia.

James, a son of a Clergyman and Tania, a qualified youth worker committed to the value of making a difference in mental health, are both very passionate about their newest instalment’s vital message – positively calling to the authentic, inner child in all of us.

Bachelor Girl continues their reputation of producing and writing ‘thinking person’s pop’, with this feel good, aspirational pop/rock call to action you can indeed rock, dance and think to.
