Saturday Night, Live!

For me, being an emerging creative artist means doing lots of little things as a step forward to bigger things. So today as I stand folding napkins at my cafĂ© day job, I think about all the other creatives on the Sunshine Coast and how many of them are giving their time to their craft tonight. You see, we are very lucky to have a varied and vibrant music scene that is emerging here on the coast. Venues all over are supporting musicians giving them a space to perform and hone their craft for YOU.

Recent reviews have described you as Radiohead-esque; your tunes as meandering with extended sonic tangents, tenaciously expansive and catastrophically all encompassing. That’s a lot of really big complicated words… How do YOU describe your sound?

Haha, that is a lot of big complicated words… I don’t know what the other guys would say, we’d probably each give you a different answer to this one, but I tend to desc…
