The Violet Flames

This Australian based indie-rock band is said to become: “A FORCE to be reckoned with in Australia and on the International Music Scene.”

THE VIOLET FLAMES are: Jackson Proud (lead vocals/guitar), James Forrest (drums/vocals), Matthew Fields (guitar/vocals), and Clinton Weaver (bass/vocals).

Forming in 2004, Kalamunda High School friends Jackson Proud and James Forrest get together and form the band with fellow schoolie Matthew Fields, after a couple of reshuffles bass player and longtime friend Clinton Weaver joins the guys to complete the powerhouse lineup.

With catchy feel good tunes and hooky riffs, The Violet Flames have become favorites on the local indie scene. Regular
appearances see them at top venues throughout
Australia, and providing support for international touring artists.

The Violet Flames are about to embark on their ‘Sun City Stadium’ Australian Tour in July to support the release of their EP and Video for the single ‘Come On’. 2009 sees the band touring internationally in the United Kingdom, Asia and the United States.
