2020 brings a fresh face and explosive sound in the form of electric rock and soul powerhouse outfit SUNFLOWER.
The five-piece are the love child of leading frontwoman Kahlia Ferguson and singer/songwriter Lawson Doyle. The dynamic pair were fatefully drawn together at Bluesfest 2019, as showcasing artists on the Delta Stage. Struck by each other’s raw talent, the two quickly discovered a unique musical connection through months of songwriting and performing together behind the scenes.
Emerging from Brisbane, SUNFLOWER are the perfect storm of soul, pop and rock in a stifling musical climate. The band features powerful, seasoned performances by Lawson Doyle (vocals/guitar), Kahlia Ferguson (vocals/keys/guitar), Dave Webster (lead guitar), Sam Woods (bass) and Luke Woods (drums).
Their high emotive and anthemic repertoire moves effortlessly through the sultry swagger of Kahlia's souful blues and the high-voltage energy of Lawson's rock & roll. Their blend of soaring Oasis melodies and evocative Fleetwood Mac lyricism resonates with audiences of all walks of life making for an unstoppable force.
The band are in high demand, having already proven their wide contemporary appeal off the back of their SOLD-OUT debut headline show in February at Melbourne’s Bar Open. Already this year they’ve performed on the main stages of St Kilda Fest, Mordialloc Fest, and Knox Fest in Victoria, as well as recently making their hometown debut at Brisbane’s Beerfest.
