If you haven’t already heard, there is a groundswell around the corner, you mustn’t miss. With rising momentum and power, Driftwood Allies are set to hit like a tsunami on a shore near you.
Their delicately woven, fusion threads, of roots, rock, reggae, funk and ska, deliver a unique brand of infectious groove. Having supported some of Australia’s Roots and Reggae heavyweights, Bomba, The Red Eye’s, and local titans, Ebb n’ Flo, ‘The Allies’ are ready to enter the ranks with their EP ‘Solidarity.’
Driftwood Allies originated as a trio in Woolgoolga over three years with core members Ashley Gibb, Josh Cansdell and Kahlil (Louie) Messer. More recently the group has been honoured to include the sweet vocal exploits of Rachel Maxwell (Wasabi) and the turntable genius of Joelism, to deliver an action-packed show like none other.
Driftwood Allies draw influence from such bands as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bomba, Katchafire, Salmonella Dub, Incubus and more.
Earlier this year the crew travelled down to Sydney to record their first major EP, “Solidarity,” at the prestigious ‘Studios 301.’ With five solid tracks on a disc, Driftwood Allies are set to blow the roof off a venue near you for the official ‘Solidarity’ EP Launch.
Whether you’re trudging your way through the jungle or droppin’ in to a 6ft bomb, solidarity of the people is where it’s at! Drawing inspiration from the local area this Trio seek to capture the STOKE!
“Set adrift upon the seas of time, we all search for ALLIES...”
