Bio

Funk, roots, rock, reggae outfit The Floating Bridges' formation and inception may be based at home on the Sunshine Coast, but diversity, eclecticism and travel is in the blood of these adventurous creatures. Initially meeting in high school, the five eventually came together to form what many would argue to be simply one of the best live bands around.

Swiftly pushing out a couple of EPs in their formative years, these stepping stones quickly came and went, the musicianship sharpened intensely, the line-up became static and the live show became an energetic experience to be well reckoned with. This show has served them well, taking them to stages with the like of John Butler Trio, Fat Freddy's Drop, Katchafire and The Beautiful Girls. They garnered triple j airplay with songs like 'Soul Searcher' and 'Foreign Land'.

All paths eventually led to 2012's release of their debut long player 'Chasing Sunsets', easily their proudest recorded moment and an accumulation of all their live experience, song writing prowess and most importantly a good third-eye glance at the shape of things to come.

2013 was equally impressive with TFB heading across international waters for the first time touring New Zealand. Playing 17 shows across the North and South islands, the tour was a huge success.

With a fresh line up and their renowned passion for good times, cultural respect and social justice, TFB are preparing to tour the nation’s capital cities in 2014, heading to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. They are currently locked in the studio and are set to release new material later this year.
