Family Cactus

Bio

Family Cactus features members from notable New Zealand bands including The Accelerants, The Brunettes, The Nudie Suits, Grand Prix, The Cosbys and The Bonnie Scarlets among others.

The seven piece group of Wellington based musicians have impressed many and have gathered a strong following from supporting bands such as Okkervil River, playing at Camp A Low Hum, the 95bFM Summer Series and Fancy New Band event, the MTV Midwinter Party and various other shows throughout NZ.

Musically, with all members bringing their own bag of references, one might wonder what the outcome would be. The seven Family Cactus members produce a sound with elements of Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, Beirut and the E Street Band; a sound that can be boisterous and aggressive, or calm and intricate.

Adam Ladley is the main songwriter in the band, his songs are miniature stories, conjuring characters and places, from miners facing tragedy in rumbling coal towns, to teenage punks bent on annihilation at all-ages venues.

Band Members:
Adam Ladley (guitar, keyboards, vocals)
Peter Smith (guitar, bass)
Sam Norton (synths, piano, organs)
Kris Taylor (drums, percussion)
Nina Siegler (vocals, accordian box, percussion)
Max Walker (guitar, synths, backing vocals)
Graeme Cummack (guitar, keyboards)
