Based on the Gold Coast Fingerprints play classic Aussie songs with an acoustic, unplugged style (they do play a handful of selected songs from other great international artists). They heavily feature Powderfinger songs (the band’s name comes from Powderfinger's greatest hits album "Fingerprints") and great songs from Pete Murray, John Butler Trio, Jet, Evermore, Eskimo Joe, Bernard Fanning, Hunters & Collectors, Midnight Oil, Crowded House, Paul Kelly, The Church, INXS & More. And with the recent addition of their own original music fingerprints have started to form a musical identity of their own and really want people to love their songs as much as they do.
Don’t be fooled by the acoustic guitars though. Wes and Nathan have added some cool effects pedals to their setup that can make their acoustics scream like a Les Paul cranking through a Marshall stack or cry like a Strat through a Fender twin amp. They do like to try and keep the sound as authentically acoustic as possible though, so it’s not all ripping solos. Fingerprints want their audience to be able to really hear the vocals, individual instruments and the flavour of the music and not just a wall of sound.
Fingerprints' repertoire includes enough easy listening, dance and party songs to suit any venue or function. Wes and Nathan also work as a duo but prefer to have the full band whenever possible.
