After an explosive first few years of existence Southerly Change are steadily established themselves as a most promising up-and-coming new band.

Now with the help of an Australian Arts Council Contempory Music Touring grant, the band will be exploring the Australian east coast over the 2013/2014 summer period.

Originally a group of four mates, Southerly Change are currently incarnated as anything between a simple guitar, vocals and hand percussion setup, to the fourteen-piece group with horn section, bass, drum kit, kora and harmonica that will appear on their next Australian Arts Council-funded recording.

The band and the musicians involved have also played at established music festivals such as Womad, Woodford, The Dreaming Festival, The National Folk Festival, Sydney Blues Festival, Summer Rhythm and Corinbank. Southerly Change will have you up for a boogie, singing along with the catchy yet beautifully poignant lyrics, or relaxing to their earthy, islander vibes. After the success of their first EP Bow and Arrow, they have been working towards their next recording, which is due for release right about now.

See the Change this Saturday December 7 at the Sheoak Shack Fingal Head.
