My taste in music is heavily influenced by the 1970s, 80s and 90s, with just a few international examples being Bon Jovi, The Eagles, U2 and Pink Floyd (they’re some favourites, there are 1000s), but my strongest influences are from home grown Australian Rock Bands, INXS, The Angels, The Choir Boys, Cold Chisel/ Jimmy Barnes to name a few.
While I’m certainly a late starter and would give anything to have began playing as a child, there’s no substitute for hard work and application, and i work at this everyday, and have no doubt in my mind I will do for as long as I’m physically able

LOVE DRUNK HEARTS
Love Drunk Hearts started as an outlet for frontman Aaron Ikin after losing his father at a young age to motor neuron disease. Music became a vessel to release the loss. Starting as grief relief, the songs quickly morphed into a means to capture the human condition in all its colours.
Formed in 2015, the band quickly developed their own brand of soulful modern rock, a kind of musical all in brawl between Neil Young, Josh Homme and Jack White - Raw, honest and emotive.
Known for shows that are explosive, yet still hold groove, the songs have an emphasis on sing along hooks and take-home lyrics.
The band’s latest release ‘Keep It Up’ is both self-biographical and an inspiration for anyone who is fighting to do what they want; the music bounces between doubt and hope. It shows a subtle departure from the high energy of the band’s first two releases
SUNDAY 26TH | 3PM
