Sequins and neon, faded jeans and vintage tees. Fiona O’Shea & The Passengers have that kind of rocking country and blues vibe. Their sound is contagious and catchy with Fiona O’Shea & The Passengers on full throttle right from the get-go. With gritty vocals and juicy guitar riffs in the mix, your hips will be a-swaying and the rafters will be a-shaking.
Six track EP Walk Like A Giant is their latest release with single ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ currently receiving widespread airplay throughout Australia by popular demand.

Robert Mackay, Pacific International Music said, “…love this EP. The record has a personality that is rare these days with great songs and a real band feel. It is what music should be”.

FIONA O’SHEA & THE PASSENGERS are from the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia playing a fine brew of malted country rock and blues. Fiona and Mark O’Shea (The Passenger #1) are the genuine article, both individual and unconventional delivering a gritty feel good vibe topped with lashings of gutsy lead guitar riffs. Fronted by singer songwriter, Fiona O’Shea on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, and husband Mark O’Shea on lead/slide guitar and backing vocals.
In 2010 Fiona released debut EP, Rose. Recorded and produced at Pacific International Music, Hervey Bay. Single release, Restless A Little Reckless received generous airplay gaining a position in the Top 10 AIRIT Charts and Fiona was a finalist in the MUSICOZ Australian Independent Awards as well as going through to the second round of judging for the APRA Professional Development Awards.
Fiona O’Shea & The Passengers continue to increase their fan base by playing at festivals (2018 Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Festival, 2019 Hervey Bay Seafood Festival, 2020 Gympie NYE Event), venues, private events and have been support act for Dirty Rascal (Melbourne) Jerry Speiser – Men At Work, Adam Brand & The Outlaws, Bill Chambers, Indy Foundation Hervey Bay (Lee Kernaghan guest speaker) and the programmed Showcase at Turn Up (Sunshine Coast Music Industry’s Conference).
