Winston Surfshirt

Beach Hotel  |  Friday 15 November

Sydney-based funk, soul and R&B act Winston Surfshirt have released Apple Crumble the second full-length release, following on from their applauded 2017 debut, Sponge Cake. The hit album bound together brass, hip-hop sensibilities and airy vocals to receive nods from international tastemakers, including Beats 1 host Zane Lowe, Sir Elton John, Jason Bentley (KCRW), Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Lauren Laverne (BBC Radio 6), and as a triple j feature album.

They have developed a cult following for their smooth style and raucous live shows, but the band’s unique blend of funk, soul and hip-hop originally emerged as the solo project of singer/rapper/producer Winston Surfshirt, before organically adopting other local artists and snowballing into what is now a musical collective, filling each stage they grace to the brim.
