While all still relatively young, the band members that make up the Australian band Tonight Alive have been playing together in their parent’s garages in the Sydney suburbs since they were just teenagers. It all started from a mutual passion for music that caused the members to gravitate towards each other through their local scene, which ultimately brought the band that we know today together.
During high school Jake Hardy (guitarist) and Cam Adler (bassist) were in a band together, mostly covering songs from bands there we into. Thanks to mutual friends they met Whakaio and asked him to join the band on keys and guitar, it was around this time they started taking the band more seriously. Although they were writing their own songs they still needed a committed vocalist and drummer.
Across town, Jenna McDougall (lead singer) was spending time playing her own acoustic shows which inadvertently assisted her in being the energetic lead singer she is now known to be.
Tonight Alive came to be after Cam helped Jenna record some of her demos. When they were done Cam mentioned that his band didn’t have a singer so he handed her a demo of theirs and asked her to record vocals over it. That was that. She was in, there was no turning back.
