Sunflower stand to be a beacon of hope for those of us who have lost faith in themselves and the world around them.
Continuing on their path to inspire hope and meaning in this confusing world, their latest release ‘Thin Skin’ is a sanguine side-step from their previous feel-good singles and offers an unseen vulnerability to Ferguson & Doyle’s empowering songwriting. The illuminating warmth of the grand piano enveloped by an intrinsic blend of rock and orchestra marks this a significant point of sonic development for the band.
Composed of brothers Luke and Sam Woods (drums and bass), Dave Webster (lead guitar) the Brisbane-based, Australian five-piece is 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. 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. Fortuitously, both lead singers found themselves standing in the ruins of their respective bands within a week of each other. Instead of retreating to lick their wounds, the concept of a brand new act featuring their paradoxical musicality, positive mantra and seductive mystique quickly came to life.
