For 30 years, the glorious voices of Vika and Linda Bull have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape.
Since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, the sisters have forged diverse pathways into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of their Tongan ancestry.
By turns tender and powerful, their rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies have spawned eight albums of their own, as well as illuminating studio and concert performances by Paul Kelly, Rockwiz, C.W. Stoneking, Deborah Conway, Kasey Chambers and many more.
Their invitation to join Joe Camilleri's Black Sorrows ushered in that band's most successful era. Vika & Linda's debut album of 1994, was produced by Paul Kelly and written by some of the most accomplished songwriters, including Paul Kelly, Joe Camilleri, Stephen Cummings, Mark Seymour and Nick Barker.
With many successes in their solo career, Vika & Linda will debut at Bird’s Basement - open your ears, and hold onto your heart.
