From Down Under: "The Love Bus".
Invited to play at this year’s 2006 East Coast Blues & Roots Festival, The Love Bus are fast gaining momentum as an emerging band. Hailing from the utopian North Coast of NSW where the surf beckons and the living is good, it’s easy to understand why songsmith Felicity Burdett and her band are so happy. In the short span of six months they have released their debut CD (through MGM), won ‘Album of the Year’ in the NCEIA Dolphin Awards, and played some really cool gigs including Joyfest, the Globe Pro Surfing Event, and now Bluesfest. The band also headlined at the Harvest Ball at this year’s Nimbin Mardi Grass.

The five piece outfit from Lennox Head, just south of Byron Bay, play a mix of funky melodic grooves that celebrate life, love and the elements. The Love Bus have been gigging constantly since their inception and built a firm fan-base through their positively charged live sets. Their award winning album has been highly acclaimed by reviewers as uplifting and inspirational and is receiving airplay on Triple J, ABC Radio and Community Radio across Australia.
When it comes to song writing, Felicity Burdett likes to focus on positivity and draws inspiration from her natural surroundings. “We are blessed with such a beautiful country, so rich and diverse. I like to take time out to smell the flowers and I try to remind others to do the same. It feels great to be able to send messages out via my songs in the hope of inspiring others to live each day to the fullest and to follow their dreams.”
“Going with the Flow is drenched in freedom and highly inspiring.”
"It isn’t every day that you hear music that lifts your spirits and makes you want to sing, or fly, or at the very least, crack a big smile".
The Love Bus play the Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay this Sunday, 21st May (supported by roots artist, Nathan Kaye). They will then head to Sydney to play The Metro (Smoking Guns) on 24th May. The band will be touring NSW and Qld in August 2006, followed by a national tour in late 2006.
The album is available at all major music outlets through MGM, and online via the band’s website.
