Two of the sisters from Stonefield are pictured playing at the MCG before an AFL match last year. Picture: GETTY IMAGES ROCK ON: Stonefield, comprising four sisters from the Findlay family, will play at a FReeZA event in Nhill on Friday.
FOUR sisters who grew up on a farm in the Macedon Ranges will perform at Nhill Community Centre on Friday night with a twist.
They are not four ordinary sisters they’re Stonefield, they’re famous and last year the rockers played at a festival in England in front of 150,000 people.
Since late 2010 Findlay sisters Amy, 22, Hannah, 19, Sarah, 18, and Holly, 14, have dominated triple j’s airwaves with pumping beats and vibrant riffs.
Since the talented youngsters’ EP Through The Clover hit the music scene in late 2010, their sound has sent them performing across Australia and Los Angeles to England’s super-festival Glastonbury.
Amy Findlay, who along with Spiderbait’s Kram takes the rare role of lead singer-drummer, said it had been a huge 18 months for the band, which hit fame after winning triple j’s Unearthed High competition in mid-2010.
“It’s been crazy. We have been so lucky to tour across Australia and visit other countries,” she said.
“It’s such a thrill to have people know our music and sing along to it at concerts.”
The sisters grew up on a healthy diet of 1960s and 1970s rock played by prodigy Jimi Hendrix, the less prodigious Frank Zappa and ageless legends Fleetwood Mac and The Doors.
When the sisters bring these influences to create Through the Clover and Black Water Rising, their versatile rollicking sounds are rare among current mainstream musical trends.
Fans can dance and belt out the lyrics to these tracks at concerts while enjoying them equally as well on a placid Sunday drive.
The drummer-vocalist encouraged other Wimmera musicians to follow the band’s path to success, despite limited rural opportunities.
“Play music you love, not just what people think is cool,” she said.
She said fans should expect an energetic show.
“It will be four girls rocking out people can see for themselves,” she said.
“I just hope fans appreciate what we do.”
Hindmarsh Shire Council chief executive Dean Miller said tickets to the all-ages gig cost $15 pre-purchased or $20 at the door for the FReeZA event.
He said people could buy tickets from Hindmarsh Shire Council customer service centres and West Wimmera Shire Council offices.
