Being included in “2010’s Top 3 gigs and Top 10 albums” by Sue Barrett (Rhythms Magazine) is a good indication of the huge entrance The Lucky Wonders made onto the Australian music scene in one short year since starting out.

Songwriters Emma Royle and WAMI Award winner Jessie Vintila first came together to create live music for puppet show Puppets Break Out, playing an eleven show season in the 2009 Adelaide Fringe Festival. The collaboration was such a success they were inspired to pursue it head-on, and formed the core of The Lucky Wonders.

Within a few months the duo had enlisted the help of ARIA nominee Anthony Lycenko (Pete Murray, Xavier Rudd, The Beautiful Girls), Ben Franz (The Waifs, Tim Rogers) on bass and lap steel, and Dave Sanders (Rodriguez) on drums.  Co-producing with Lycenko at Byron Bay’s Rocking Horse and 301, they created the twelve tracks compiling Thirteen O’Clock, which was to meet overwhelming critical acclaim.

‘Thirteen O’Clock’ is a delicate blend of roots tunes with a pop underbelly, featuring "...arrangements peppered with bright ukulele, glockenspiel and harmonica. Recorded in their hometown of Byron Bay over a series of early mornings, Thirteen O’Clock becomes indicative of those curiously creative, still and silent hours… Brimming with tales of isolation and love, Thirteen O’Clock is ultimately resolved to hopefulness and embracing the journey despite its twists and turns... the sense of optimism is so strong and the tunes are so uplifting, that you want to turn it up and dance around the kitchen (preferably with sun streaming through the windows)… Vintila and Royle prove themselves to be valid up-and-coming contributors to the ever-growing Australian singer-songwriter scene. And it's nothing to do with luck, but a whole heap of talent” The Dwarf.

They have been likened to Sixpence None The Richer, Old Man River and The Waifs. They now play as a four piece with Sam Parker on bass and Anastassijah Scales on drums, delivering much loved live shows which continue to bring them a rapidly growing following. “This band definitely has a big future ahead.” Sound of Oz

The first thing I read about The Lucky Wonders was that they were from Byron Bay. As a result, I knew that the band was either going to sound like a) Parkway Drive or a) a bunch of jangly guitar-lovin...more

How can any band sound so sincere and pure...? Hard to believe, but the folks in Australia's The Lucky Wonders make music that really is genuine and sincere. We were blown away by these ladies' last f...more
