Bio

UPDATE: We're in the midst of creative development, getting ready to hit the studio with producer Yanto Browning in June. So, new tunes coming soon...... UPCOMING GIGS: - Ric's Bar, Fortitude Valley, Thursday 27th June wheeleR exude fun and the ultimate good time. It oozes from every pore. To see them live is to have all your worries cast aside, even for a few hours. Assignments due, shitty boss, unrequited love, can’t pay your rent - what of it? Worry about that later - the gig is like a holiday away from anything that could be described as a bummer. ‘It’s just a laugh - life’s too short to take it seriously’. You don’t just see a live performance, you become a part of it. It’s as though the brothers have invited you to a party at their place. They’re intent on having a good time, and are dead keen for you to be a part of it. The obvious enjoyment they have for playing together on stage is infectious, and you can’t help but have a good time. And then there are the tunes - they’re upbeat with hooks a-plenty and catchy melodies and lyrics that will hang about in your head for days to come. No place for melancholy or forlorn teenage woes here - it is all about the fun, taking chances and making good things happen. Music, fun and a good time - wrapped in a chewy Brit Pop/Rock coating (with a sprinkling of Blues Funk) because who doesn't like an extra topping. Avid songwriters, the band’s strength and passions lie in performing their original music to live audiences who they continue to excite and delight, winning new fans whenever and wherever they perform, with a wealth of original material the band take audiences on a journey where the eclectic musical tastes of individual members combine to serve up infectious melodies and catchy lyrics that stay with audiences well beyond the performance. Since their formation in late 2008, the band, which is comprised of three brothers, has appeared on national TV, won a number of competitions (local, state and national) and reached the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition. No strangers to live performances, the band have been performing for a number of years at an array of venues including theatres, pubs, bars, cafes and festivals.
