Biography

Brisbane band Avalon Drive’s Damion Page (vocals), Wil Morris (former guitar/backing vocals), Ryan Kennedy (bass), Shane ‘Holmesy’ Holmes (drums) and BJ Dillewaard (keyboards) played in various bands over the last four years and finally came together in early 2005 under the guise of Avalon Drive. In early 2007, Wil Morris left the band for pesonal reasons, although this was not announced until October 2007. Replacing Wil on guitar/backing vocals is Shane O’Keefe, formerly of Brisbane band St. Lucia.

Since then Avalon Drive has built an impressive fan base, and playing high energy live shows and festivals carving their place in the Australian rock scene.

The band released their self-titled debut EP in August 2005, which included a bonus DVD, spawning the debut single ‘This Simple Life’ with the accompanying live video which received wide recognition from the media, the internet and music television. The band’s highly anticipated second single, Outside Alone, received high rotation on Channel V, Rage and consistently heavy airplay nationally by Nova FM.

In March 2006, Avalon Drive were invited to join US rockers, Yellowcard, on their Australian tour playing their first ever performance in Sydney at Luna Park’s Big Top to a sold out crowd of 3000 people. The response to Avalon Drive so crazy that the band had to cut short their set halfway through their second song due to the crowd barrier breaking also forcing Houston Calls to cancel their set at the show. Yellowcard frontman, Ryan Key had to appear on stage to calm the crowd down telling fans that “you rocked out so hard for the opening band you broke the barrier”.
