Blown away. Thank u for all the beautiful messages, friends. So much love for u all. Our performance will be airing nationally (!!!) on Christmas Day if you’d like to tune in. Amazing weekend. Now, for junk food and Netflix and sleep. Lots of shows coming up. See you Friday and Saturday night at South Bank for a couple of massive shows. Excited.
THE BEST NIGHT. Last night we played the Lord Mayor's Christmas Show at Riverstage. Magical. Big love and thanks to the amazing drummers who made this Little Drummer Boy dream a reality. Everything was completely live. So much hard work went into it. It's not every day you're backed by @johnforemanofficial incredible orchestra, a stunning choir and the best damn percussion group a band could ask for. One for the books. Very thankful. You can watch the full video on our Facebook or YouTube Channel. Merry Christmas, friends. Big love.
Still reminiscing about the amazing Album Release Show on Sunday. Can’t thank u all enough for being there. What a day. This Saturday night we’re lucky enough to be featured at the Lord Mayor’s Christmas Show at Riverstage. Crazy. Full-band set for the pre-show at 4.30 and two songs in the actual televised event on Channel Nine at 7. Spoiler alert: we’ll be backed by a choir, a percussion group and John Foreman’s amazing orchestra. Zero chill. Hoping you’ll be there cheering us on, folks. They close the gates at 10,000 and it always fills up long before the show starts, so be sure to get there nice and early if you’re coming. V excited. Big love.
THE BEST DAY. Big love and thanks to everyone who braved the hot weather and celebrated our album release day with us. We feel like the luckiest band. A year and a half of hard work has led to this moment. Every lyric, every melody, every harmony, every instrumental was created by us. Now, this album’s yours. Out now on Spotify and iTunes. We can’t wait to hear all about the moments it soundtracks your life x
THE LOVE HOPE PEACE ALBUM IS OUT NOW ON SPOTIFY AND ITUNES. STREAM IT, BUY IT, PLAYLIST IT, SHARE IT.. THIS ALBUM IS NOW YOURS.
HERE IT IS, FRIENDS! OUR ALBUM IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON ITUNES. Link in bio. Physical copies (w/ lyrics) are up on the website. Stoked. At the beginning of the year, this album was impossible. It really was. Because you sold-out both The Love Album and The Peace Album (!!!), you enabled this little independent band to hit the recording studio and bring these tracks to life. YOU gave this album life. The seed grew into a full tree because of your overwhelming love and support. Thank you, friends. Every song on this album was written and produced by these hands. This is a piece of us. We put our everything into it. In four days time, it‘ll be yours. We’re just really freaking happy right now. Let’s get our pre-orderin’ on! Tell your friends, your family, your neighbours! We’ll see you all on Sunday for the Album Release Show at the Botanic Gardens. Can’t wait to celebrate with you all. Big love. 🎨: @ingridbartkowiakart 📸: @aimeecatt

BEYOND stoked to announce that we are now endorsed by @coleclarkguitars. What a dream. So happy. Big love and thanks to absolute legend Miles Jackson (CEO of Cole Clark Guitars) for so kindly rocking up to our house with a car full of guitars and letting us pick his brain all morning deciding on our dream models. Crazy, right? You’re the best, Miles. Thrilled to be a part of the Cole Clark family. #coleclarkguitars
Dan thinks Kahlia looks like she has a giant mohawk in this shot and now I can’t unsee it, haha. We had the best show at @nightquarter the other night.

Televised performance at Riverstage, Woodford Folk Festival, a MASSIVE album launch show.. we couldn’t ask for a better month to release this album into the world. Exciting times. We have so many new songs to play for you. Hoping you’ll all be there. EVERYONE is welcome. There is always a seat for you. 📸: @aimeecatt
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. We’re so excited to finally announce the release of our full-length studio album, the ‘Love Hope Peace’ album. Out December 2. Fourteen tracks written, produced and recorded by the five of us. We’ve been teasing you all year with puzzle pieces and now it’s time to bring it all together with a bunch of brand new never-before-heard songs. Your overwhelming love and support for both ‘The Love Album’ and ‘The Peace Album’ enabled this little independent band to make this album a reality. So, thank you friends. Without you, this wouldn’t be possible. Can’t wait for you all to hear it. Massive album release show at the Botanic Gardens. It’s going to be huge. See you soon. Big love. 📸: @aimeecatt
#ThrowbackThursday to our street performing days. Around this time, no one wanted to hire our little band. We had no bookings, we were being shelved by a dodgy management group, we had no financial ability to tour or record etc. and we were sonically lost and discouraged. It was a really rough period of time and in some ways it would have been very easy to hang up our guitars and call it a day.. but we didn’t. Venues didn’t want to hire us, so we decided to create our own venue. We took to the city streets several times a week and belted it out with two acoustics. Truthfully, at first no one cared. We stood there nervously, feeling a little foolish most of the time. But we persisted. A few months into it, something shifted. Our voices started to strengthen and project. We started writing songs like Catching Fire and Oh Darlin’, and people began to stop. Crowds began to form. People started to dance and clap and sing and cheer loudly. Our music started connecting us with beautiful people and their stories. As the years went by and our name started to grow, venues and events began opening their doors. We started to really grasp what felt and sounded honest and true to us. It’s been a huge journey from these photographs to where we are now. These years weren’t easy. There were a lot of days we wanted to throw in the towel. But we didn’t. And neither should you. I hope this post reminds you that this moment right now is just a foothold to something better. Everyone’s path is different. Don’t give up just yet. The people in these shots didn’t know that amazing opportunities like the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony and Riverstage and headlining festivals and releasing albums etc. were just around the corner. You never know where the road you’re walking will take you, so don’t you dare stop walking. This post felt appropriate to put out there before tomorrow night’s announcement. The next two months are going to be amazing, and I know without a doubt that the little barefooted buskers you see here would have been STOKED if they knew where they were headed. This band still has a long ways to go, but we’ve really learnt how to just enjoy the ride. Big love.
Our favourite Springsteen song. We love this one. Played this song for you a couple of years ago, but it’s since been tweaked (with the addition of Dan) so we thought we’d jam on it again this afternoon. Music heals.
This soul sister right here has been killing it lately with her sultry blues pipes. We’re playing Eat Street tomorrow night and Botanic Gardens on Sunday if you’d like to come and spend an hour or so with us, friends. Kahlia and Shani are also going to do a short live stream here on Insta tomorrow @ 1.30PM (Brisbane) while they get ready. Come with q’s and supportive emojis. See u soon xo 📸: @frycandyphoto
Joel thought I wouldn’t be able to lift this guitar over my head and boy oh boy did I prove him wrong look at me go. I almost broke my back though and will absolutely never do this again 👍🏽 Here are some life updates. Our gig was cancelled today which was sad. But last night’s show was wonderful and we have two more shows next weekend (see bio). We also just posted a lyric video for If I Should Die Before My Time (see bio again). Grateful to see this track receiving so much love on @spotify. Would mean a lot if you gave it a listen, friends. Lastly, the five of us have individual Instagrams now, with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness (tagged above). Joel’s trying. He’ll get better. Pls show him ur support. I mean, he can’t get worse right? See you all next weekend. New music is in the oven AND IT’S ALMOST DINNER TIME. I’m going to regret that line tomorrow but I’m willing to commit for now. Big love.
