ICEHOUSE started as a pub rock band called FLOWERS performing their first live show to a crowd of around 30 in Warriewood beginning three years of local residencies and non-stop shows around the country. That first show included covers of the songs from artists the band loved including David Bowie, T-Rex, Iggy Pop, Sex Pistols and Ultravox. In 1980, they scored a record deal with Regular Records and released their first singles, Can’t Help Myself and We Can Get Together.

The band’s debut album, ICEHOUSE, was released in the same year to critical acclaim and reached multi-platinum status in Australia and New Zealand. ICEHOUSE soon became the highest selling debut album by any band in Australia, a record it was to hold well into the 1990s.

In 1981, FLOWERS changed their name to ICEHOUSE for use in the overseas market. With their new name, the band embarked on their first overseas tour, taking on the USA, Canada and the UK in their stride.

ICEHOUSE has sold over three million albums locally, more than nine million internationally, and have achieved 28 platinum album sales in Australasia. They have had eight Top 10 albums and more than 30 Top 40 singles. ICEHOUSE and Iva Davies have won many awards, including the Countdown Award for the Most Popular Male Performer and ARIA Awards for the Best Album and Highest Selling Album for Man of Colours. The band was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2006.
