The Spindrift Saga hail from the sleepy South Coast of New South Wales and features a talented lineup of musicians. Brothers, Chris (vocals/bass) and Mick (guitar) McGrath, alongside Danny Freeman (drums), come loaded with music degrees and have spent their lifetimes refining their craft. Together they have become known for their high energy live shows and incredible attention to musical detail, delivering tight and engaging performances both on stage and in the studio.
A TRULY UNIQUE SOUND
With comparisons being drawn to the music industry alternative heavyweights, “these lads have crafted a truly unique sound best described as electrifying”. The Spindrift Saga is a head-turning power trio with musical ‘chops’ to burn and cover an enormous diversity of styles in their performances. Influenced heavily by funk music, The Spindrift Saga welds this syncopated groove element seamlessly into their rock roots. The result is a 90s orientated sound that could be likened to acts such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Living End, Soundgarden, Incubus and other industry frontrunners.
The Spindrift Saga now has 350+ shows under their belts, and have proven themselves to consistently deliver incredible live performances. They’ve shared stages with many of Australia’s major acts and built a strong following of their own on the South Coast of NSW and beyond. After regular touring between 2015 and 2019 following the release of their debut album and several new singles, the band was forced to slow down their busy performance schedule during the Covid pandemic. The Spindrift Saga have used the break from touring to spend time with their families, explore solo projects and focus on writing and recording their next record, which they hope to release and tour later in 2022 or 2023.
