The Wayward Suns are an energetic, dynamic five piece fusion from Australia's Gold Coast. Their unique blend of underground hip-hop, roots, funk, reggae has lit up dance floors up and down the east coast for the last 3 years. Blank G.C magazine describe them as “groove fusion merchants on a rapid ascension across the musical landscape”.

Happy Magazine state, "they weave together raw, earthy instrumentation with spirited vocal delivery, they create a collage of sounds that'll leave you hanging on every note. With their textured, rhythmic blend of genres."

The deep funk rhythm section is peppered with the melodic counterpoint of sizzling guitar lines and powerful turntable samples, while the two lead vocalists compliment each other, one providing a rootsy growl which juxtaposes the DJ/MC’s conscious hip hop lyricism.

The last year has been huge for The Wayward Suns. The release of their debut album 'Paradigm' was a resounding success and was nominated for album of the year in The Gold Coast Music awards. They also claimed victory in the Passport to Airlie national battle of the bands. This is the largest of its kind in Australia, which puts bands from all over the country in competition to win a spot on the main stage at one of Queensland's largest music festivals. The band’s hard work and dedication to their craft has served them well. They are consistently lighting up shows with their mystical expressions of truths, love & party, bringing life to the Gold Coasts best venues such as The Night Quarter, Miami Marketta and the Shark Bar. The band is certainly no stranger to festivals either, performing at Brisbane Festival, Buskers by the Creek, Glow festival, Mardigrass and Wallapalooza.

For the near future the band is focused on recording the next studio album which is currently being produced and recorded at Love Street studios and playing their largest show to date, main stage at Airlie Beach Festival of music. There, they will be playing main stage alongside Australian local & international legends; Killing Heidi, Marcia Hines, Ash Grunwald, Elektric Lemonade & Melbourne Ska Orchestra.
