A fluid groove collaboration born from the West Australian coastline, Blue Child Collective’s easy-flowing, conscious song craft “evokes the gentle rhythms and roaring freedom of Australia’s seaside” (Happy Mag).
Fronted by Dan White, an enthusiastic collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and fingerstyle artisan, this is music with purpose. From his thought-provoking lyrics to the Collective’s engaging live performances, “Blue Child Collective is connecting people through music” (Scenstr), creating waves that have earned them a recent nomination for West Australian Music’s Best Regional Act, and shows this summer with Xavier Rudd, The Teskey Brothers, The Jungle Giants, Stella Donnelly, HOLY HOLY and more.
The Collective’s third record,“Saturn Saw The Seaside”, captured in Corsica, France and released late 2016 saw them knock out over 250 shows across Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore in 2 years of full on touring, bringing both full band dance offs and intimate duo performances to a rapidly growing global following.
Having supported major touring acts such as The Cat Empire, Sticky Fingers, San Cisco, OKA, Caravana Sun and many more, the group are notorious for their cross-pollination within and without the music industry, especially in the film world, having co-created a plethora of documentaries, feature videos, music videos, interview series and more with the help of other professional artists to give depth to their musical content and further explore similar themes.
With their fourth record,“Wake Up To The Sound” features an all class line up out in November and fresh off the back of a 16-date Australian Tour as a five-piece in Jan-Feb, the Collective are set to bring the new album to New Zealand in March, with another documentary titled “The Art Of Sound” out later this year.
Plug in, connect and get involved: Blue Child Collective is fast becoming a major catalyst for positive change on a global scale as more and more people join the movement and contribute to the ‘Culture of Connection’.
