Australian rock group Stonefield performed at Viva Phoenix on 3/12/16. Coming all the way from Victoria, AUS, the group of four sisters (Amy, Hannah, Sarah, and Holly Findlay) took the stage at Punk Rock Alley for their first ever Phoenix, Az show (and only 3rd ever in the US). On their way to SXSW, the Findlay sisters had a great audience in attendance, and Amy (lead singer) knew how to play off them extremely well, stalking the stage, dancing along to extended and well executed instrumental breaks, and singing to those pressing themselves against the stage. Stonefields mix of 70s classic rock styling’s mixed with punk sensibilities won them the Triple J Unearthed High contest in 2010, so while they may be relatively unknown here in the States, they have been charting in their AUS for the better part of five years. After seeing their performance, and witnessing their expert musicianship first hand, I doubt they will be unknown here in the US for long.
