BATTLEBIRD: The coolest kids musical collaboration of 2016: DVD/CD GIVEAWAY

Battlebird - Life is Good

Dad Luke Ferguson noticed his son Elliott struggle through the early years of primary school, due to his inherent shyness.

Luke says “Elliott was struggling a little bit at his new school and I found it pretty heartbreaking. I had a feeling music may bring him out of his shell as it did for me when I was younger so we started goofing around in the garage writing music, making video clips on an iPhone and an old MacBook and before I knew it we’d pressed a handful of EP’s and performed live at the local Moruya Arts Festival (2015) in front of 200 people with Elliott’s classmates joining us on stage.”

Luke & Elliott - Battlebird

Luke, who’d previously played in several bands and supported the Beastie Boys, discovered that music did unlock Elliott's confidence, and now the father and son musical duo record and perform under their musical guise; Battlebird.

Elliott, now 8, and his dad Luke produce music that is a form of intergalactic hip hop/rock. Alongside recorded music, the duo's music videos appeal to kids of all ages.

Battlebird's debut album 'Life is Good' has just blasted into the airwaves, released (25 March 2016), and the duo are ready for a pop-rocking adventure through Australia and beyond.
