Ebb N Flo bring beats, lose locks

SINCE forming in Coffs Harbour in 2009, Ebb N Flo have continued to develop their unique blend of roots rock reggae.

The solid seven-piece have established themselves as crowd favourites and party starters on the touring and festival circuits.

After sharing the stage with many industry heavyweights, Ebb N Flo have again returned to the studio to follow up their well-received debut EP House Of Love with their new single, Bump N Grind.

The new release also sees the line-up of Ebb N Flo change.

As some former members parted ways to take on new challenges, the band went into hibernation during most of 2014, only to emerge from slumber like a hungry bear needing to fill an empty stomach.

Ebb N Flo would like to introduce Shannon Thompson as their new lead singer.

New Zealand-born and raised, Shannon came to Australia in 1998 and has worked on a number of projects including R&B group Cherish, SHAN.ONE recording and as a contestant on the first series of Australian Idol.

The new-look Ebb N Flo will perform at the Hoey Moey on Easter Sunday.

The group's drummer, Micky Seccombe, will be cutting off his dreadlocks of 14 years at the show to raise funds for the SurfAid charity.

The money raised will go towards improving health and self-reliance in the communities of Mentawai Islands, West Sumatra.

To donate, go to give.everydayhero.com/au/micky or donate at the show.
