David Flower's live show can best be described as a sonic excursion crossing bluesy currents, funky peaks and reggae valleys. This modern day troubadour expresses stories of love, politics and mother nature... and is not afraid to hang some dirty washing out on stage. Flower's individual guitar style combines with charming, lyrical approach to singing and harp playing. The band itself adds a mix of drums, percussion and bass guitar, highlighted by colourful harmonies. This playful rhythm section has a wealth of individual performance experience (Toothfaeries, Lothlorien, Houseprouds), giving Flower the platform for a free spirited, magnetic show. Since the release of the 'David Flower' (self titled) album in November 06 David has received airplay on JJJ (Ash Grunwald Blues and Roots and the morning show), ABC radio, 4AAA and 4ZZZ Brisbane and various community radio stations Australia wide. What they are saying: A brilliant act, with a huge presence on stage, Dave Flower empowered his audiences, and was one of the highlights of the festival this year. A mixture of folk / rock / blues, they stole the night's concert, accelerated the crowds elation with their energised performances and had everyone, (including the festival organisers!), on their feet. We will hopefully be seeing them again at Wintermoon and I thoroughly recommend their act to any festival or event lucky enough to have them apply. Jenny Drake Wintermoon Festival Coordinator "The new David Flower Band is on fire. Lots of rhythm and some of the nicest harmonies to come along in a while' - Jay Bishoff, Peregian Originals "The prolific Flower has a particular attraction to the acoustic guitar's ability to create natural melody, which is evident on his new self titled album. He plays a unique, enticing blend of acoustic folk and reggae expressing himself both on a personal and social level" - Time Off "The eagerly awaited CD from the master of reggae, beach funk, soft rock and warm ballads hit the right notes" - Ken Lord, Courier Mail "His command of the stage and interwoven musical styles had the audience lapping up every beat and every note" - Sharyn Rosewarne, Sunshine Coast Daily "The band, known for punching out funky tight sounds, had the audience in a dance frenzy from the very first beat" - Maz Henley, Organizer, Palm Creek Music Festival "Great social commentary filled with raw honesty and warm songs of love. It really is something you can put on and have a good listen to the lyrics. A well balanced album by musicians who really know their stuff" - Lisa Kither, Sunshine Coast Daily FESTIVALS Woodford Folk Festival, Festival of Beers (Brisbane), Darwin Festival, Wintermoon Folk Festival, Palm Creek, Winter Solstice, World Environment Festival.
