Heaps Good Friends formed after Emma and Nick met at the old Gladstone Gaol in South Australia, where Nick recorded Emma’s first demo in the K wing. The latest addition of drummer Dan completes their set-up, and together they started to show Australia what they’ve got. Their stellar 2017 featured a national tour with The Jungle Giants, an impromptu BIGSOUND appearance and a coveted triple j Unearthed performance slot at the sold out fun fest that was this year’s Groovin’ the Moo.
