Bio

Sunshine Coast based quartet Pro Vita separate from the pack by blending soaring vocal melodies and big choruses with hooky garage influenced pop-punk.

2015 began for Pro Vita with a string of single releases in the lead up to the bands third EP entitled ‘Scattered’. The third single Julia released in May saw the band’s first taste of national radio play on Australian broadcaster Triple J.

Through Triple J’s Unearthed program the group were pleased to receive the festival slot to be the Sunshine Coast’s first official Unearthed band. This milestone had the boys play the 3rd annual Big Pineapple Music Festival to open the main stage for the likes of The Jezabels, Violent Soho and The John Butler Trio.

Front-man and prolific song-writer Connor Brooker continues to receive acclaim for his other projects including Brisbane based trio Bugs and electro solo project White Wash.

Pro Vita have had a blast playing festivals such as Brisbane’s Bigsound in 2014 as well as continuing to share stages with national and international legends such as Sticky Fingers, Dune Rats and Glass Towers to name a few.

2016 marked the bands strongest year to date with new releases and supports with the likes of DZ Deathrays along with touring with mates Lunatics on Pogosticks. 2017 started with a bang for the fellas supporting pop punk legends Moose Blood (UK) and being announced as one of Triple J Unearthed’s top 50 played Artists of the Year.

2017 has had Pro Vita tour nationally with their first leg to Western Australia in the release of their latest single Love You For It, available everywhere online now.
