Byron Bay-based folk/indie pop four-piece The Lucky Wonders, are, well, just that – Byron Bay based (say that ten time fast).

They have made a huge entrance onto the Australian music scene in the short time since they formed, with a trail of rave reviews left in the wake of their album Thirteen O’Clock, two singles in the semifinals of the International Songwriting Competition, and mammoth touring efforts.

The collaboration was such a success they were inspired to pursue it head on, and formed the core of The Lucky Wonders.
