Luke Steele (vocals/guitar), Malcolm Clark (drums/vocals), J Cortez (bass/vocals), Ben Nightingale (guitar/vocals).

2003 will be forever scribbled down in The Sleepy Jackson notebook as the year they finally took their music to the world. Having already established a loyal following locally through national air/videoplay and extensive touring (Homebake, Splendor In The Grass, Silverchair early 2003, Meredith and now Big Day Out). The band also wowed fans with their headline tours selling out venues across Australia. The band released their much anticipated debut album "Lovers" to widespread critical acclaim in June 2003. This was followed by international releases in the UK, US and over fifteen other territories throughout Europe and Asia.

Having already released several EP's (Stereo, Miniskirt, Caffeine In The Morning Sun and Let Your Love Be Love) the bands first official single from the "Lovers" album, "Vampire Racecourse" instantly catapulted the band from indie status to one of Australia's most prominent new bands - even more so with album track gems such as "This Day" and the anthemic "Good Dancers".

On the overseas front, the band started the year with a string of NME presented UK dates followed by headline tours throughout UK and Europe including main stage at the Carling Weekend (Reading/Leeds), Les Inrocks Festival France and several successful tours in the US including supports with My Morning Jacket and The Polyphonic Spree. The critics applauded the band ...US Rolling Stone awarding Lovers 4 stars proclaiming it one of the debut albums of the year. In October the band returned to Australia briefly to attend and perform at the 2003 ARIA Awards for which the band received 5 nominations including Album Of The Year, Best New Artist and Best Rock Album.

"..the album's beautifully-crafted pop, psychedelia, country balladry..." - BANG
