“so smooth and understated it verges on soulful” - Brag Magazine
Brisbane 6 piece Kingfisha have been laying down weighty reggae and dub to eager audiences for going on 6 years now, and in the process have cemented themselves as one of the undisputed must see acts on the Australian roots scene…this is no small achievement. It was a reputation further solidified when late last year national broadcaster Triple J added ‘Piece of the Puzzle’, the second single from their self titled debut album, to national rotation.
Aside from the impeccable musicianship and pulsating live shows for which the band are renowned, what tends to set Kingfisha apart within their genre is a crafted modern reggae style that couples the bands love of Jamaican rhythms with the inherent depth and innate melody of front man Anthony Forrest’s songwriting.
Upon its release late last year, Kingfisha’s long awaited self titled debut was named Feature Album everywhere from PBS FM (Melbourne) to Eastside FM (Sydney) and Radio Australia. Lead single ‘Looking Glass’ was added to rotation on FBI (Sydney), SYN FM (Melbourne) and spent 3 consecutive weeks in the number 1 spot on the national AIRT/AMRAP Now Charts before second single ‘Piece of the Puzzle’ came across the top with the aforementioned triple J rotation add.
Live-wise this year, April saw the band double headline a national tour with Brisbane compatriots Dubmarine, a run of dates that saw them sell out in Melbourne and play to well over 700 punters @ The Hi Fi in their hometown.
