The Migrations formed in 2011. The 6 piece started as a solo project for front man Mildsparrow, and through well forged friendships have taken flight together as a flock since. Made up of two songwriters, four vocalists and a bass/guitar/keys/drums backline, The Migrations sound is a luscious amalgamation of all things that good rock and roll should be about. Hailing from Melbourne, the band takes inspiration from its neighbourhood and surrounds, its stories illustrating a reflection of inner city living, of the 9-5 working week, of the sanctuary of the weekend, and a tongue and cheek go at those who wreak havoc on the environment. Their sound has been said to be many genres, and they certainly are not shy about displaying their musical inspiration ranging from Garage Rock, Alt Country, Pop, Blues and a good dash of Rock and Roll. They have been compared to bands such as The B52′s, Wilco, Kingswood, The Stooges and You Am I. The Migrations are Matt Davidson aka Mildsparrow lead vocals/guitar, Christian Bianco- Bass Player (Space Like Alice, Easy Tiger Studios), Paul Spurling - Keys (The Fujiyama Mamas, Ways to Fall), Pia Richardson – Drums, Eliana Deur - BV’s, andCate DeCarteret -BV’s (The Fujiyama Mamas).
