Danny Estrin, Vocals & Keytar says this about Voyager’s inclusion in this year’s competition: “Eurovision is the greatest show on earth, so getting a chance to represent Western Australia and to showcase our keytar driven brand of heavy music is one of the most exciting and surreal opportunities to ever come our way!! So thank you Australia for giving us the opportunity to take you on a Voyage with us in what has been a lifelong dream.”
If you aren’t across Voyager yet – they smash genre norms, boundaries and regulations thrust upon them! The vibrant quintet succeed in choreographing an intricate dance between metal and pop; employ a keytar on stage, and bring forward a positive, uplifting feeling to their music, running head-first into the endless parade of heavy bands who see the world in a different light.
Voyager’s latest album “Colours in the Sun” exploded like a supernova onto the worldwide stage with their vivid, uplifting and exhilarating music and live performance, capturing the excitement of existing fans and the intrigue of new ones from all around the world.
Frontman Danny Estrin, a long-time Eurovision fanatic is not only an award winning, multilingual lawyer by day, he also moonlights as a renowned and respected musician whose signature dose of 80’s influenced vocals and hook-laden keytar lines over the top of genre-transfiguring, ultra-modern and prismatic hard rock has travelled the world many times over. The song “Runaway” garnered the band a shortlisted spot in EAD 2020, and the band’s latest entry has stolen them an official spot to compete in Australia Decides, 2022; proof that the band has the innate ability to consistently transcend.
It’s time for Australia to decide, and Voyager is ready!
