ABOUT THE BAND

Desert Sparrow are a Los Angeles based indie rock band hailing from the beaches of Sydney, Australia. Their main artistic influences are 60’s rock n roll, folk, spaghetti western, and surf. The result is a narrative experience which paints images of solitude, hardship and perseverance on backgrounds of desert roads and California coastlines. Desert Sparrow draws inspiration from bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Florence and the Machine, BRMC, and Angus & Julia Stone. 

Before meeting each other, Kylie began playing piano at the age of 5 and later fell in love with singing after hearing Stevie Nicks constantly playing from her parents’ stereo. Writing poetry and singing in her bedroom was always her way of releasing emotions behind closed doors, yet she never had the intention of taking it to the stage. After losing a bet to a friend, Kylie found herself singing karaoke in a packed restaurant one night and never looked back. Dave’s interest in music came later, buying a guitar at 21 after seeing BRMC perform for the 1st time. It was the song “Fault Line” that made him understand how powerful an acoustic guitar and harmonica performance can be. A few years later, he met an English friend traveling who gave him a copy of ‘Definitely Maybe’ by Oasis, and it was in that exact moment he knew he wanted to start a band and pursue music professionally. 

Stay tuned for the release of their new single 'Karma' coming out in October 2019!
