The Lyrical at BBQ Bazaar
Since topping the charts on triple j’s Unearthed for the seventh time, The Lyrical has become the rising star of the music scene on the Sunshine Coast – and it’s coming to BBQ Bazaar! The Queensland North Coast has always been Australia’s hotbed for new talent in a variety of genres and the hip hop-reggae scene is no exception to that tradition. Following in the footsteps of Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd, The Lyrical reflects the ingenuity and musical aptitude it takes to be a great artist.
The Lyrical has toured both Australia and the world, as well as releasing a hugely popular self-titled album, The Lyrical, to critical acclaim. He has shared the stage and played with the likes of Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, Angus Stone, Jack Johnson, Michael Franti and Blue King Brown. He’s rocked festivals such as Big Day Out, Bluesfest, Caloundra Music Festival, Red Deer Festival, Sprung festival, Party in The Paddock, Island Vibes Festival, Grotto Fest, Festival Of The Sun plus many more.
The Lyrical has also had mega radio and online success hitting number-one seven times on triple j’s Unearthed and gained a number-five spot for Sweden’s Top 50 Most Streamed Songs for the year of 2015, beating the likes of Prince and One Direction.
