Founding member Peter Thornley was inspired to bring together indigenous musicians with a few honorary black fellas to make music with a message. After spending time in remote Aboriginal communities with alarmingly high rates of suicide he began work with Red Dust Role models and Beyond Dreaming to deliver a message of mental heath.
