Ed Buckley This is nice! Fat Sparrow give us a set of pieces that wander between prog rock and fusion; often within the same tune. A couple of tracks hue closer to blues than anything else (or maybe the ballad style just fools my ear). All in all, they do a superb job. This is a worthy addition to any collection.

FAT SPARROW, a band of five musicians with a collective sonic pallet that is both broad and searching. The band recorded their self titled debut album in the Summer of 2015 by converting into a studio, the very den that housed products during the 60s for a well known Perth small goods company.The record features a collection of snapshots captured from an ever-evolving stream of compositional and improvised ideas.

The music created by Fat Sparrow is at once energetic, detailed, imaginative and immersive. The band fearlessly explores the diverse aesthetics, musical styles and identities contained both within their compositions and beyond, bringing truth and power to the moment and ultimately their own representation of time and place.

Thank you to Kieren Kenderessy for your energy, expertise and for helping us stay true to our sound. Mace Francis for your guidance and experience every step of the way. Ben Collins for your advice throughout the recording. Robin Murray for being there from the beginning and giving time and enthusiasm to the project in its early stages. And a huge thank you to all our familes- Wives, parents, sisters, brothers and the like. We could not do any of this without your support!
