Wow! We’ve had an absolutely huge month. Let’s see –
Headed back to Tanuki Lounge to work on two more tracks with the most excellent Paul Bromley – Check.
Played some sweet as gigs, including a massive Ocean Street World Festival set – Check.
Went to the Queensland Music Awards, took out the Blue/Roots award for our single, ‘Impolite’ – uhh…. Check!
It’s been pretty overwhelming.
We’ve got a few more shows up our sleeve, including our last ever show at The Motor Room in Brisbane’s West End on April 9, plus returning to Black Bunny at Alex Heads on April 10, and a special fundraiser show at Crystal Waters for our friend Bianca on April 16. And then… well, friends, then we go quiet for a few months. The second half the of 2016 is looking to be a big one for us, with the release of the EP, festivals, and more shows up and down the Coast, so we’re getting in a break before all the craziness starts. So if you want to get your Bearfoot fix before we disappear for a few months, those dates listed are your best bet.
And we’ll return, firstly, on June 25th for a special A Set Adrift performance to 25 lucky people – cruising around on a boat for 2 hours, with beers, canapes and Bearfoot acoustic.

Whoa. WHOA. So, a few weeks back we were announced as finalists in the Blues/Roots category at this year’s Queensland Music Awards for ‘Impolite’. Rad, right?
Well, a few days ago, we also learned that we are now finalists in the BOQ People’s Choice Award for Most Promising Team (for ‘Babylon’). Triple Whoa.
Here’s the thing. It’s the People’s Choice. So, YOU guys decide.
Sooooo… if you dig ‘Babylon’ (or hell, any one of our releases), and feel it is deserving of taking out the award, then go cast your vote now. You have until March 7 to do so.
Click here to do it.
Free hugs from us when you see us next (just come up and say, ‘Hey guys! We voted for you in the BOQ People’s Choice Award thingo!’)

We’re very proud to announce that we have been announced as finalists in the Blues/Roots category at this year’s Queensland Music Awards. Surprised? We are! Our track, ‘Impolite’ must’ve impressed.
The QMA’s will be held on March 21 at the Brisbane Powerhouse Theatre, coincidentally, that is the first day of us going back into the studio at Tanuki Lounge. Guess some of us will have to sneak out and head to the awards night, not only for ourselves, but to support fellow Coast artists Sahara Beck, Ayla, Doolie, and The Brains Trust, who are all up for awards as well.

So, if you haven’t heard, we’ve released a special single – a remix of (yet unreleased track) Feed My Soul by Jesswah. We’ve taken one of our most dubbiest of choooons, and gave it to Jesswah to put a big phat Hip Hop twist on it. It’s available now on Triple J Unearthed, Soundcloud, iTunes, Spotify etc.
Hope you like it!

We’re on the Woodford Folk Festival come down. What an amazing, hectic week of gigging, meeting new friends, seeing our mates play mind-blowing sets, and general looseness. We’d say we would’ve played some of the best gigs of our careers – so thank you. Thank you Woodford FF and your vollies, to Chloe, to Matt, to the sound/stage teams, and to all those that sweated/danced/sang along to our sets.
We have new merch now available too, so we’ll get that online ASAP. New Bearfoot shirts (Black or White), new Hats, and a limited pressing of Impolite and Babylon on CD.
So, what’s next? More recording, baby.
Plus we have a little something something up our sleeve. Stay tuned.
October 29, 2015
The new track is mixed, mastered, and coming very very soon! We’re so happy with the new single, and can’t wait to share it with you all. We’re also working on our debut EP, which we collaborate ‘Babylon’, the new single, plus 3 new tracks, and the ‘Babylon Remix’, which we do hope to have finished off early next year.
In the meantime, we will be doing a limited pressing of the new single, bundled with ‘Babylon’ and the remix, in time for our shows at …
WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL.
We also have a new shirt design available, which you can purchase for $25 at any one of our shows.
August 17, 2015
The new track is nearly done, and, not content with just one song, we’re working on a few more, because hey, we should have an EP, yeah? More details on that to come.
In the meantime, we’re playing live on MixFM (92.7) this Friday morning at 8am, then off to Brisbane on Sunday to play Parks Alive in Roma St, followed by a Sunday sesh at Taps Brisbane (Fortitude Valley) in the late afternoon.

So, after a huge weekend (last weekend) in the Studio with PaulieB, plus gigs with Cheap Fakes AND a Sunday Sesh at Black Bunny Restaurant, it was nice to grab a quick breather… THEN, we found out we’re playing this suhweet festival in November with our great mates, The Floating Bridges, In2nation, Jesswah and more.
Needless to say, we’re pretty stoked to be on that line-up.
Oh yeah, and the new track? It’s sound f’ing MINT!
June 15, 2015
Wow! What a huge night last Friday night was. Big thanks to our mates in Yamini and Hemingway for joining us. We didn’t have long to recover before the next announcement…
We’re playing Full Moon Dance on July 4 with Declan Kelly & The Rising Sun, The Seven Ups and more. Intense!
June 5, 2015
Our first headline show at our second home is coming up! Keep June 12 free to come see us at Solbar, with Yamini, and Brisbane’s Hemingway. Rumour has it that we could very well be recording this set for something a bit special down the line too.
Big thank you to all the new Bearfoot friends, particularly those that found us after our set at Big Pineapple Music Festival last weekend. Such an epic day.
Feb 25, 2015
‘Babylon’ has been getting a great response! Thank you! You can now review/rate/download at Triple J Unearthed (which would really help us), plus remember to text in to programs like Roots’n’All with Sarah Howells, or even Good Nights with Linda (text Bearfoot ‘Babylon’ to 0439 75 7555) to get us on the J’s.
Feb 20, 2015
Happy Babylon Release Day! We’re absolutely stoked to announce that our debut single, ‘Babylon’ is now out! Phew. Also, we did a clip to go along with it, so go check that out on the music page. We’re having a bit of downtime for a few weeks, then we launch right into things on March 6 with a support slot for our good mates, The Floating Bridges!
Jan 14, 2015
So, the secret’s out… we have our very first single coming out soon. Recorded at The Vault Studio, with David Harper, ‘Babylon’ is our new baby, and we’ll be pushing this track on quite a few dates through March and April, with a surprise or two along the way.

We’re stoked to say that we’ll be playing The Point Party on December 4 at Solbar, with a whole heap of amazing Sunshine Coast acts… it’s a free event, and these tend to go off, so it might be a good idea to mark this one in the calendar. Or come see us support Dubmarine at Solbar on December 6.
Here’s the links to the two events.

Thank you everyone for your support and to those that came out for our Sunday sessions… you made it even better.
Huge thanks to the following – Rohan Nitschke, Carl Wockner, Kristi Nageli, Olli Jacobson, Kane Filler, Ryan Delaney, Mickdog, Agnes J Walker and of course Brian Goodworth for all jumping up and jamming with us.
Also big Bearfoot hugs to Rob Sharkey (for the ultra cool photos), Jesswah & Katie, the Chapmans, our significant others, the Solbar staff.. and Phil for hanging out/dancing/supporting us.
You can catch a stripped-back bearfoot set this Friday night in the front bar at Solbar before Nahko & Medicine for the People, and we’ll be back for The Point Party on Dec 4 and the massive support with Dubmarine on Dec 6.
And don’t forget… we have shirts now too… so if you’d like to rep bearfoot around, that would be rather awesome. We even have artist endorsement… Carl Wockner’s repping one of our shirts

Big news coming soon!!!! We’re leading up to something we’re quite proud of, so stay tuned to our page for more details.
In the meantime, we’ll be playing this Sunday night at Solbar, Maroochydore after 6.30pm for a 3 hour Sunday sesh, with some special guests (as we do).
Hell.. there may even be lamingtons.
