DMA's: Lockdown Sessions Q&A

On Friday 22 May at 8pm, Everton Football Club brings you an evening of live music in support of our Blue Family campaign, which is helping those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Eleven acts featuring Everton fans have recorded exclusive sessions in isolation and ahead of the big show, we’re profiling them to find out more.

Next up, it’s DMA’s...

Who is in the band and where are you from…

Tommy O’, Johnny Took, Matt Mason - we’re all from Sydney, Australia.

Why are you supporting the Blue Family campaign?

I’m (Tommy) the Evertonian in the band and have been my whole life - my dad’s family are from Liverpool. 

What should you have been doing in May 2020?

Touring the UK playing festivals (Hit The North and Live at Leeds), headlining gigs and watching Everton.

How has the pandemic and lockdown affected you as a band?

We’ve had to delay the album release and postpone a bunch of shows. Like everyone, our life and plans have been put on hold but we'll be ready and eager to get back to it once the world returns to relative normality.

Headlining O2 Academy Brixton, London.

Best Everton memory?

Beating Man United 1-0 in the FA Cup Final, although I barely remember it. Also, going to Goodison for the first time as a young boy was a truly amazing experience for any young football-loving Australian.

Favourite city to play a gig… after Liverpool, of course!


For those yet to hear your music, who would you say it is for fans of?

Stone Roses, Oasis, The La’s, Arctic Monkeys.

What does the next year hold for you?

Just eating, until we can travel again so we can perform our music for our fans. Oh, and getting back to Goodison.

What song have you chosen to perform in isolation for the Blue Family Lockdown Sessions?

The End - the final chorus, we’ve added a little something tricky in there, if you listen closely…

Where can we follow you?

We’re @dmasmusic on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, and here on Facebook.
