The Melbourne based Blue King Brown was formed in 2004 by Natalie Pa’apa’a and Carlo Santone. The band draws on its heritage of Samoan, Native American and Mexican background.

Natalie and Carlo started out in Byron Bay before relocating to Melbourne and then adding Salvador Persico, Sam Cope and Peter Wilkins.
