Still working on that hot first release.



Crossroads is a Rock/Reggae/Roots band from Townsville, North Queensland formed in May 2012. It currently consists of Ilona Bienkiewicz (vocal&guitar), Wayne Chandler (lead guitar) and Dylan Howells (Drums).

A high energy Roots/Reggae/Rock sonic love explosion where a tidal wave of sonic bliss, body shaking rhythms and soul cleansing goodness leaves your mind expanded and every molecule of your soul screaming for more!!

Ilona met Dylan at a local concert.
She played solo that night after another of Dylan’s bands had performed and he was instantly blown away by the depth and range of her voice and her skills on the guitar.
Ilona had been performing her selection of original songs with Bass Player Stuart McNichol and had been on the hunt for a drummer.
Later, they jammed together with Stu and Dylan was introduced to their songs. Needless to say, he was keen to slap the skins for them!
After rehearsing like musical maniacs the new line-up began playing around Townsville’s Pubs and clubs and quickly established themselves for their powerful live performances.
Lead guitarist Wayne Chandler, well known in Townsville’s metal scene joined the band soon after, adding further dimensions of intensity and string-shredding skill to the mix.
Ilona is a natural performer, totally comfortable on a stage of any size and an expert when it comes to working a crowd. She and her partners create not just a show but a high energy audio-visual experience. You will not stay still for Crossroads!
Like their name, the band’s musical style is where pumping hard rock meets an earthy roots intersection, where reggae cuts across the blues highway and it all collides in a powerful musical fusion with Ilona’s husky, soulful vocals up front in the driver’s seat!
The band has recently recorded a debut three song CD which showcases their musical diversity and has managed to capture their raw live intensity.
In the last 6 months since the band formed we played at Mission Beach Evolve Festival, Cultural Fest (Townsville), the Venue (one of Townsville's largest locations for live music) and with NQ Roots Connection.
Crossroads are gearing up for a big 2013 and plan to play to as many people as possible – including you so look out!!
