Bio

Heaps Good Friends are a charming Adelaide trio of heaps good friends with a heaps good story.
Quirky vocal powerhouse Emma Fradd met synth-juggernaut Nick O’Connor in prison. Specifically, the Old
Gladstone Gaol, and even more specifically, at a youth arts program.
Emma was attending as a moody teen who would rather be at home playing on her Nintendo 64. Nick was
working as a music facilitator with a penchant for recording groovy synth sounds in prisons.
Fast forward a few years, a few overseas flights and a few different musical projects, Nick and Emma
inevitably reunited and decided to start writing music together in 2016.
It didn’t take long for their debut single ‘Let’s Hug Longer’ to capture the hearts of the nation with its
unpredictably wholesome lyrical content and its infectious instrumental. The track swiftly flew to high rotation
on triple j, becoming the 11th most played song on the youth broadcaster in 2017 and earning the then-duo
an Unearthed slot at Groovin’ The Moo.
Enter drummer Dan Steinert (TOWNS) to complete the trio of very solid pals and their very solid live show.
With the buzz brewing, additional triple j rotation followed, as did national tour supports with the likes of The
Jungle Giants, Lime Cordiale, and Polish Club, plus festival slots at BIGSOUND, NYE On The Hill, and The
Hills Are Alive. - Caitlin Crawley, Habit.

it's so good to have hgf back and this is a bouncy but intimate combo. and forget love, the real big l-word in any relationship from now on is laundry! folding laundry together and you're basically married with kids.

you three have held such a special place in my heart for so many years, so of course, there was plenty of space to squeeze this sparkly rainbow charmer in there next to the ol' faithfuls.
