Founded in late 2018, the band was formed as the creative collaboration of James Boak (vocals), Morgan Punton (guitar), Ethan Burford (guitar), Kyle Stoops (bass) and Cameron Henderson (drums).


The talented musicians initially become good friends after meeting on the local gig scene - playing in the bands Laurens Court, Fracas and Rhythm, Wood & Shapes - before joining forces together, fusing their skilful and well seasoned musical abilities, to create Kickin' Lillies...


Keen to kick things off with a bang, The group were quick to begin work on developing their sound and crafting together their live show - tightening the nuts and bolts along the way whilst performing gigs around their local area of Sunderland (UK).


The alternative rockers soon jumped on two sold out shows at one of their hometowns finest venues Independent - smashing out a solidly strong supporting performance with North-East fast risers Docksuns and The Pale White!

The North East collective showed no signs of slowing down heading into 2020, named as one of Independents must see acts of the year.


Continuing on this wave of excitement and interest, the alt rockers headed to Motorhouse Studios (owned by Jordan Miller and Jack Wade of Vandebilt) to record their debut single, 'All These Bad Dreams', which was recently released on 6th July!


Discussing the lyrical influence behind the track, vocalist James Boak explains “lyrically it focusses on the way in which negativity can affect how a person thinks or behaves.”.



The road ahead looks promising and full of success for these Sunderland based alt rockers - we cannot wait to watch it all unfold!
