A Sydney based folk rock harmony group featuring original arrangements of classic hits
// vocals & guitar
Born: Cardiff, Wales
Mal is from Cardiff, Wales where he was a head choir boy at his local church. At the age of 10 he started the acoustic guitar and banjo, coached by a very talented teacher and consequently performed with his brother in folk clubs, eisteddfods and other events.
He is blessed with having a good musical ear, so loves working out vocal harmonies and more recently has taken up another of his passions, the piano.
// vocal & sax
Sam loves playing alto sax, singing harmonies or lead on some of her favourite songs, and writing original songs with Darryl.
She also loves jamming with her 12 year old son who plays keys and sax. When she has to go to work, she gets paid by football teams and corporate clients who want to learn to take their performance to a higher level, reducing the noise and mental interference that stops them playing at their best.
Playing in Vegas Nerve gives her a vehicle to practice (live) everything she teaches at www.StateofMind.sydney.
// vocals & keys/bass
Born: Lismore, NSW
Darryl came to Sydney in the early eighties as a high school music teacher with a box full of cassettes of his first album ‘In The Smoke’.
He has run Fountainhead Studios for 30 years, written musicals, taught thousands of students and inspired countless musicians over the years, both face to face and with his online business.
// vocals & keys/bass
After too many years of classical music training and exams in her youth, Gill has rediscovered the joy of rocking out! In addition to aspiring rock chick, she's a mum to a household of three boys.
In her spare time she helps organisations adapt and thrive in this pressured, always-on world through leadership and mindfulness-based interventions.
