If you like: Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers & Of Monsters and Men

The Tipsy Scholars are an Australian indie folk band known for their heartfelt song writing and energetic live performances. Since forming in 2014, the band has made a firm impression on their twin home towns of Sydney and Canberra; acquiring a loyal and raucous fanbase.

With a rich and diverse array of original works, The Tipsy Scholars tell tales of travel, love and life in a way that only four best friends with varying amounts of facial hair and an assortment of instruments can do. Since the band’s inception, there has been an organic camaraderie between the four members which has fostered visible elation every time they take the stage – whether it be at one of Australia’s biggest festivals like Lost Paradise or Inland Sea of Sound or whilst supporting artists like Thirsty Merc, Polish Club, Alice Ivy, Castlecomer or Andrew Farris of INXS fame.

The Tipsy Scholars spent 2018 recording their debut EP, “Nowhere To Be” which gained over 100,000 streams on various platforms as well as Triple J Unearthed airtime. Following the release of “Nowhere To Be”, the boys took their show on the road up and down Australia’s east coast and to the other side of their world – embarking on their first international tour to the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Since returning to their native shores, The Tipsy Scholars have been hard at work further honing their craft and producing more music to share with their fans. 2019 is shaping up to be full of exciting new challenges, snacks, music and roads to be travelled for The Tipsy Scholars.
