Brisbane band Dozzi are taking the country music scene by storm with their catchy signature sound.
Three Brisbane sisters are making their mark on the country music scene with their unique harmonies and charm.
Andrea, Jesse and Nina Dozzi have been stirring up interest with their self-released EP This Time, with their latest single topping country charts and receiving heavy rotation on Country Music Channel.
Now they’re playing Australia’s biggest international country and roots festival, CMC Rocks.
This means rubbing shoulders with huge international acts like Lady Antebellum, something that Andrea says the band is very excited for.
“We’re planning on going full-on stalker!” she says with a laugh. “No, we’ll be best friends with them I’m sure. It’s especially exciting to play alongside them.
“We’ve been wanting to play this festival for a long time.”
They have the country musical festival scene well covered after playing gigs at Gympie and the iconic Tamworth Country Music Festival.
“Country music festivals are different to other music festivals because everyone is there for the music,” says Andrea. “They’re not getting wiped out or not remembering anything about the day, they’re there to have a good time and enjoy the music, so there’s always a really good atmosphere.”
While there is a larger audience for country music overseas, Andrea says the close-knit Australian community is something special.
“The US is like our second home and we love going over there,” she says. “But the great thing with Australia is that we know everyone. We’re friends with the other bands, and that’s great.”
CMC Rocks will be held at the Willowbank Raceway from Friday 13 March to Sunday 15 March. For more information see our event guide listing.
