When Craig Lyons of Sydney duo the Blues Preachers wrote a bunch of songs that felt like they needed a new home and so the Marvellous Hearts were born.

At first he thought he’d hire a few musicians to record the tracks and that would be it, but the more people heard about the project, the more they wanted to get on board. Now his ragtag crew includes George Rigatos on lead guitar, Andrew Hutchings on drums & Danny Tsun on keys, all established musicians in their own right. Their music is grounded in old school blues and traditional folk with flourishes of rock and reggae, with songs which are too relevant today to be labelled as “retro revivalists”.

Perfect for the Skyline stage, these cool cats will have you up and boogieing.
