About Birthday Blues

Ampersand’s second single, “Birthday Blues”, follows hot on the heels of their debut release, “Originality”. 


Vibrant, striking and self-determining, “Birthday Blues” wants YOU to be content with yourself. Don’t put your happiness in someone else’s hands and blame yourself when they let you down. You’re in charge of your own destiny. 


Built around the distinctive synchronised stabs on bass, electric piano and drums, the song has an undeniable funky groove that makes it one of the band’s personal favourite tracks. 


Co-written and arranged by the entire Ampersand team, “Birthday Blues” 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 Engineered by Justin Tresidder at Yama Nui Studios and Mastered by Paul Blakey, this single’s recording was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance. The release of this single is also partially funded by Noosa Council’s Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Grant.


“Birthday Blues” will be available to stream on Spotify, Amazon and wherever you listen to your music from the 29th February 2024. 


“Birthday Blues” is also the 2nd single from Ampersand’s debut EP, set to be released in mid-2024.
