Bio

Traveller & Fortune play bittersweet songs. It's something big and dark and kinda folky; something whimsical; something that would tie itself to a bunch of helium balloons and try to fly. “Honestly, I haven’t heard Australian indie-folk ever been done this well. I love everything about it.” – Timber & Steel The band of multi-instrumentalists strive to create song-scapes that are at times moody or at times uplifting, rich with harmony and melody. Traveller & Fortune’s performances are honest and nuanced but maintain the spirit of whence the band started out: spontaneous late night shows in the low lit bars of Adelaide. Traveller & Fortune are touring Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide to launch their new single "Little Plastic People" in September!

The bronzed country sound is as genuine as chewing on a stalk of wheat, but there's no novelty here, just some good solid writing set to some genre gentrification.
