Band Of Frequencies

Band of Frequencies

Sunshine Coast
The ebb and flow of the seas embodies the fluid ethos of Band of Frequencies. Their sound is characterized by a deep groove, intuitive group chemistry and Shannon’s husky vocals. With a voice likened to Ray LaMontagne and Ian Ball from Gomez, Shannon’s lyrics engagingly affirm the positive through his personal experiences.

For the genre hungry, the B.o.F. sound is a mash up of soul/funk breaks, blues/rock riffs, dub/reggae roots, ambient soundtracks and saltwater folk. As Shannon says, Almost every style of music I love originally comes out of Africa. But beyond genre tags, their impeccable musicianship and rich musical history is their strength, which allows them to explore a plethora of styles in their live sets and extended improvisations.

Balancing a wholesome dedication to their art, families and the ocean, the band values space for the important things in life to remain front and center. Being independent this is often a longer road but with Band of Frequencies it’s definitely more about the journey than the destination. The band is motivated and passionate about environmental issues, especially those relevant to ocean conservation, and this is reflected in their discography and long history of collaborations with groups such as Surfers for Cetaceans and Sea Shepherd.

With a swag of albums and accolades including a Qmusic award for Best Blues and Roots song in 2012, B.o.F. have garnered a reputation for consistently making quality music. They have played with many respected artists including Donovan Frankenreiter, Bernard Fanning, John Butler Trio, Angus Stone and Ash Grunwald as well as performing at some of the world’s most amazing festivals and events, among them the Billabong; Pipeline Masters, Hawaii; North Shore Film Festival, Hawaii; Surf & Sound Tour, Tokyo, Japan; Cosmic Creek Festival, California, USA. Not to mention some of Australia’s premier festivals: Splendour in the Grass, A Day on the Green, Mullum Music Festival, Nannup Music Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.

With an ethos of freedom from any limitations, Band of Frequencies draw their influences from a vast spectrum of progressive roots, rock, electronic and psychedelic styles to create their own expression. The band coined the phrases Free Soul & Cyclonic Sonics to describe their intentions to "allow the present moment to evolve into a sound future while reflecting a deep respect for all who have come before us." It’s this spirit that resonates within passionate music lovers who have embraced their sound. It's this essence that has lead to invitations to grace the stages of diverse festivals, at home and abroad, and record soundtracks to several internationally released surf films.
