Our influences are the moon, the sun, the stars, the sea and everything that occurs inbetween.

Our sound could be best described as a mesh of indie rock, soul, jazz and even folk with catchy pop elements.

We've worked hard to bring you what we think is a clearly defineable sound as a band

Biography

Brian Walton (aka Walto), the effervescent frontman of ‘the family’ alongside Tim George (Bass), Kevin Banfield (lead) and Andy Guyett (drums) have been rocking up and down the length and breadth of the country for the past year on stages at Life festival, Knockanstockan festival, Dalkey Arts festival, as well as supporting the likes of Kila, Natty Wailer, Mary Stokes, Fuji & Myagi and the Chieftans. Their infectious sound seemingly has had somewhat of a warming effect this past 12 months and due to the reaction they have received from a wide ranged audience, the band have recently released their debut album entitled 'FULL CIRCLE'. The album was produced with Brian Masterson (Van Morrisson/ U2/ Red Hot Chilli Peppers/ Nora Jones/ echo & the bunnymen etc.) is on general release from 4th June 2010. Their first single entitled ‘Something Special‘ was released at Dublin's Pod complex. The Album was just launched in the reknowned Whelan’s venue in Dublin, on Friday 28th of May 2010. Honest, flavoursome and sometimes edgy vocals along with agile guitar riffs and killer hooks are what form the basis of this tight little outfit. Their distinctive hum along sound is as catchy as Velcro and Judging by the hordes of screaming fans at their debut single and album launch (and with even the somewhat mature music lovers beginning to stand up and take notice), you can expect to hear a lot more from Fusion Family in the not so distant future. Their sound which is teeming with soul has elements of jazz and reggae but still holds the edge of a working class indie rock band with a clearly defineable style both musically and vocally. The band have been tipped as ones to watch by a number of industry pluggers as well as various radio deejays in Ireland and the UK since the debut release of their single, and now that the grass roots is well under way the band are showing strong potential as young contenders in their first year! Fusion Family are: Brian Walton - guitars /vox Tim George - bass/ backing vox Kev Banfield - Lead guitar Andy Guyett - Drums In the words of Jim Lockhart from legendary Irish band The Horslips - "FUSION FAMILYS tracks are excellent, lovely tight bass and drums. They're well put together too, nice rhythmic stuff happening and good structures – you've got a good instinct for what makes a track hold together musically. Also tasty harmonies and nice guitar".
