Falls Festival Byron Bay Foster a Band - Anna Free & The Unsolved Crimes
You are here
Falls Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary with one of the biggest line-ups to date. Headlining acts include Flume, Run The Jewels, Glass Animals, Angus & Julia Stone, Fleet Foxes, Liam Gallagher and many more.
Plus, the annual Foster A Band competition has now opened. Paired with their media buddies, one local Byron Bay band will have the incredible opportunity to take the stage in front of thousands of people at this year's Falls Festival.
Voting is open to the public through the month of October on the Byron Falls Festival website.
This year, Byronbay.com is supporting local band Anna Free & the Unsolved Crimes.
Anna Free & the Unsolved Crimes sound uncannily like your favourite band used to before the drugs, synthesisers and/or Japanese conceptual artist came along and ruined the whole thing. Anna has been performing her own curious blend of piano-based garage pop around Byron for several years, including performances at the Byron Bay Blues Festival and Bangalow Music Festival, and has just finished her brand new EP ‘This Doesn’t Feel Like Nothing’.
Anna’s lyrically driven songs explore a range of topics from cats to teenage angst to teenaged feline angst and much more. Her first single “Make You Happy” was awarded the Song of the Year in 2015 by the North Coast Entertainment Industry Association and her follow up self-titled album took out the Dolphin Award for Album of the Year.
Growing up in Bangalow, Anna was playing music with her family from a young age. Her brother Sammy taught her to play guitar and she learnt piano by teaching herself every Regina Spektor song in existence. Soon they had the chops to rock out with their father, Mark, and eventually infiltrate his band to create the Unsolved Crimes.
The Crimes went on to play on home turf in the Byron Shire and tour the East Coast before heading back to the studio. The last year has seen Anna bumping around in the big smoke with Sydney punk juggernaut ‘Good Pash’, but now she’s back in Byron to play with old friends and looking to break some eardrums and/or play some quality progressive rock n’ roll.
