An unforced and hip blend of music, Lover's Electric are a blend of their Australian roots and European surroundings visually and musically, influenced by the artists they grew up with in the 80s from Cyndi Lauper to New Order. Lovers Electric are Australian husband and wife duo from Adelaide via London. The band was founded by members David Turley and Eden Boucher. They have toured throughout Europe,the US and Australia promoting their albums, 'Whatever You Want" and 'Impossible Dreams'. Lovers Electric have just released their new album 'Stranger' this year.
Fergus Maximus is that guy with his headphones on long after the playlist has finished, completely oblivious because there's always music in his head anyway. His early plans to run away and join the circus were thwarted by a lack of openings for half-baked gorillas though he's since put those skills to use in various party bands and as frontman for Adelaide pop/rockers Stumbletrip (currently slumbering). He's done temp and contract work in almost every industry, backpacked around the world and a few years ago packed up his wife and kids in the 4WD and drove around Australia.
Ferg's unapologetic pop songs encompass all the important things: love, loss, mistakes, surprises, people's astonishing capacity to miscommunicate and the mystery surrounding that curious old woman down the street. And eggplants, of course.
Ably supported (read "carried") by his most excellent bandmates, Kym Perry (guitars) and Jamie Harrison (basses), Ferg sings, plays sax and performs random acts of percussion (unless he's playing solo in which case he bashes away at the guitar like a thug). All for you, folks. All for you.
Rod Boucher is a bit of a legend in Australia. After lots of TV and Radio in the 60s, 70s and 80s, touring in support of Larry Norman, Split Enz, AC/DC and many others, he and his family took their street theatre BedlamOz to festivals around the globe for 2 decades. He's decided to return to his roots as Rod the Revelator, an electric conscience.Rod is a passionate and dynamic performer with a voice and a presence like no other.
