From uni jams to playing at festivals
Alex Pereira met Colliflowers frontman Gary Collocott in primary school, sharing nothing more than the same school house colour and a Facebook acquaintance. When Gary put a call out on Facebook years later to start a musical project, Alex, then a Southern Cross Contemporary Music student, took the bait.
The Indie Rock band Colliflowers was born. With three of the four members Southern Cross music graduates, the Colliflowers made their debut at the Byron Beach Hotel and have been playing your go-to dancefloor songs across the east coast ever since.
