Bio

The Lamplights have been hurtling towards this moment since their formation at the end of 2009. The group believe that great music is great music, no matter what the genre and this is reflected in their energetic performances. Ryan, Jason McGregor, Ashley, Mik and Mattie demonstrate an honest belief that quality songs form foundations for quality performances. The Lamplights deliver an eclectic mix of music with a truly unique sound. They're laid back but full of energy, familiar but innovative, folky but overtly funky. The Lamplights are true songwriters with a broad love of music, rather than a love of a genre. Their live performances are rapidly becoming the stuff of legend, it's no wonder the group gathers crowds like moths to a flame. Providing entertainment through memorable musical moments is what this band does best. With a long list of festival appearances, a busy performance schedule and airplay in Ireland, England, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, France and New Zealand, The Lamplights are certainly one of Australia's fastest rising live acts.

Love The Lamplights! Their live gigs are always fun and absolutely danceable. Feelgood tunes by a bunch of really talented musicians. I have both albums and they stay on the regular playlist.
