Drawing musical influences from soul, reggae and desert rock genres, the group uses music to raise awareness of issues such as recovering from addiction, spiritual empowerment and love.
Key writer, keyboard player and vocalist, Tim Gray, leads the band, bringing an infectious passion to the stage along with the band comprising Hawaiian, Jewish and Italian cultural heritages.
The band released its debut EP in November as part of Corroboree Festival in Sydney after recording earlier in the year at Kameygal Studio housed in Gadigal Information Services in iconic Redfern, Sydney.
It is a hard-hitting EP that the self-confessed recovering alcoholic Gray says is a healing journey, with songs that focus on social and political issues that face First Nations people and other minority groups in the community.
Currently working on touring the EP over the next 12 months, Tim says spreading the messages the band espouses are his main priorities.
Born at Macksville, NSW, and growing up along the Georges River Tim was influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Warumpi Band and Coloured Stone.
