Sisters Samantha, Amy & Jasmin have been writing and playing music together since they were very young. Phenix was launched on 29th August 2015. Samantha was living in Mackay at the Central Qld Conservatorium of Music and flew home for a few days with the family. They jammed and decided to ask a few friends and musicians they knew to come to a local venue where they showcased four of the songs they'd been working on. From there they received a week's booking to perform their original music at Brisbane City Hall.
Multi-instrumental, each of the band members have been trained and mentored by some of Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast's finest Musicians.
