Sally Chicane formed in 2015 when a group of old and new friends all found themselves living in Canberra at the same time and wanting to start a band. They clicked immediately through rock, despite their varied backgrounds and influences from classic rock, metal, punk, indie, and grunge. Kristy has had a long career playing in Darwin all-girl band Bleach, Hamble, Lodebar, plus a couple of Canberra cover bands before she found the Sally Chicane guys. Mick is a multi-instrumentalist who shares songwriting duties, and Andrew is trying to set a record for number of bands he can be in at one time.
In December 2015, Sally Chicane recording their debut EP, “Consumption”.
In November 2017, they headlined “Rock for Tara”, a fund-raising gig for the Tara Costigan Foundation. Sally Chicane returned the the studio in June 2018 to record their first full-length release.
Late 2018 saw a personnel change with Alicia joining the band. She grew up playing drums in punk bands in the USA and has slotted straight in with SC.
August 2019 saw the release of the band's strongest work yet, with the launch of full length album "Internal Monologue" to a packed crowd at the Polish Club, Canberra and lead single "No Songs Are Written About Me".
