WP-Lifeline--grapefruit

In 2011 they took the Tweed Heads Battle of the Bands and in 2012 the boys won the Busking Over Byron competition and played Blues Festival. Meeting with John Butler and Mama Kin last year was the icing on the cake for a three-year anniversary. This hot young act from the Byron Shire have been a favourite among audiences for three years and were voted by JJJ Unearthed to play at the 2012 Splendour in the Grass.

Their music is continually evolving, its foundation has a smooth rock base then adds a strata of psychedelic sounds and complex syncopation that builds the pressure and gets the musical lava flowing.

Lifeline is a name to expect big things from in the future.

See them at the Sphinx Rock cafe this Sunday.
