First Beige

First Beige

Based in Brisbane, First Beige draws upon jazzy colours, textural synth layers and interwoven vocal harmonies backed by driving house rhythms. The infectious live act presents listeners with an ever-evolving set comprised of extended improvised sections and high energy grooves. The six-piece have continued to solidify themselves as one of the most eclectic, transportive and vibrant live acts to come out of Brisbane in recent years.

Since their inception in 2016, First Beige has come a long way from the bedroom-recording project of founding member David Versace. After two EP’s, two East Coast tours and a QLD Music Award nomination, the band have gone on to support the likes of Australian favourites Winston Surfshirt and Last Dinosaurs as well as cosmic heavy-hitters Mildlife and Harvey Sutherland.

Having made a statement at BIGSOUND Music Festival and Conference in 2019, First Beige received high acclaim with Deafen County saying, “judging by the movement in the crowd, everyone is in favour of their funk” and Music is My Muse emphasising, “... First Beige are at their best, evoking growth in a sound that they have seemingly mastered…”

The band have hit the ground running in 2020, receiving praise from Gilles Peterson at a Worldwide FM broadcast show as well as appearing at Brisbane’s Laneway festival, Party In The Paddock, A Festival Called Panama and Nine Lives. Following up from their second EP ‘Mirrors’, First Beige are already hard at work in the studio, forever striving to push boundaries and further evolve their sound.

First Beige is David Versace, Jasper Gundersen, Oscar Borschmann, Troy Doolan, Julia Beiers and Cain Robertson
