Between Kings & To The Skies
Brisbane, Australia post-alternative rock outfit Between Kings play with an immediacy that has been missing from most modern rock. The band has developed a palette of songs that pour out of the speakers with emotional intensity and vitality. When Between Kings pick up their instruments they aren't playing songs, they are letting the audience take a listen to their most intimate thoughts and feelings.
As if by fate, four boys from worlds apart met to form Between Kings - Nic Machuca (Vocals), Jordan Coyne (Guitar), Jayden Marsh (Bass) and Nick “Tricky” Fanning (Drums). The songs they created reach out and speak to their generation with inspiration emanating from Nic looking in the rear-view mirror on his early life experiences growing up in South Africa, surrounded by violence and crime to Jordan’s emotional passion from insecurities experienced as a teenager, Jayden’s born showmanship from life growing up watching his dad play gigs and Tricky’s desire to drum until there was a noise complaint.
Playing with a heartfelt resonance one minute, then mixing it with arena-rock balladry the next, the band triumphantly uses melodic elements making it irresistible for rock enthusiasts to throw up the horns, or even hit the dance floor. With the group quickly developing a bond over their desire to create infectious rhythms and powerful hooks they bring together the sound that is Between Kings! \^^^/
To The Skies have quickly exploded onto the up and coming scene of the Sunshine Coast in their short time together as a band. Formed in 2015, To The Skies have already performed at many of the finest venues on the Coast including Solbar, Palmwoods Hotel, Mooloolaba Surf Club and Ricks Garage, played live on air, had radio interviews and in 2017 headlined the enormous annual Summer Skyshow, presented by Hot 91.1.
Consisting of four mates, To The Skies became a band based on a mutual love of music and performing, striving to ensure that everybody who hears their music is catered for and has a memorable time. The two brothers, Jacob and Harry, began their musical journey at school in 2012 on the guitar and bass, where they gained invaluable experiences by squeezing the most out of every available opportunity. At school they frequently performed with their best mate and fellow drummer Izaac. The backbeat of the band, Izaac has been performing on both drums and piano since his early childhood. Completing the group and filling the role of frontman is Lockie. Known for his strong vocals and engaging live performances, Lockie gives 110% and works hard to keep the crowd entertained.
Capable of providing all their own equipment, performing for up to four hours with a huge variety of covers, originals, acoustic, hard rock and everything in between, a great and memorable night is guaranteed.
To The Skies are rapidly gaining a following on the Sunshine Coast and in 2017 recorded a 5 track EP at Heliport Studios. In the mean time they are loving as many opportunities as possible to perform.
