About Originality

The release of Ampersand’s debut single follows 3 years of non-stop successes for the independent nu-funk/soul/retro pop fusion band. 


Off the back of performances at Caloundra Music Festival and Noosa Alive, Ampersand recorded “Originality” in response to public demand from a supportive community. 


Confident, outspoken and unapologetically direct, “Originality”  is an ode to originality. Inspired by experience with copycats, the song calls out those individuals who can’t seem to find that self-motivation and inspiration within themselves without resorting to imitating others. 


Co-written and arranged by the entire Ampersand team, “Originality” features Vocals, Lyrics and Melody by Katie Brown and Isi Semmler, Keyboards and Chords by Jarrod Tutbury, Bass by Jed Green, Drums and Percussion by Orlando Hamilton-Craig and Guitar by featured guest artist Doc Hamilton. Recorded, Engineered and Produced by Scott Mathison and Justin Tresidder at Yama Nui Studios and Mastered by Paul Blakey, this single’s creation was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance. 


“Originality” is available to stream on Spotify, Amazon and wherever you listen to your music from the 25th January 2024. 


“Originality” is also the lead single from Ampersand’s debut EP, set to be released in mid-2024.
