Bio

The Grownups hit the Australian independent charts in the late 80s and early 90s with two singles (Into The Beyond and Snakebite) and a 4-track EP - but parted company before recording a full album. They've now reformed to complete that piece of unfinished business. Their debut album, The Light-Filled Corner, features 20-year-old songs (re-imagined) banged right up against brand new songs. It's an eclectic mix of alternative pop rock. As an interesting footnote - The Grownups' lead singer, Michael Wagner, is the dad of Wil Wagner, lead singer with The Smith Street Band. So, father and son have released debut albums almost simultaneously.
