The Sations are a family band, made up of husband and wife Dom and Laura, and sister Rachel. They write from their hearts, not shying away from the sometimes-harsh realities of life, love and faith. They opened for two time Grammy winner, Lauren Daigle, alongside Paper Cranes 折り鶴 at Festival One 2020. Their music has already gained global attention, with their song 'Floodgates' winning first prize in the Christian category of the International Songwriting Competition in early 2020. The song was also included in Spotify's "New Music Friday Christian" playlist in 2019. Their single ‘Thank You’ debuted at #1 on the LifeFm YouChart and at #10 on the NZ Hot Music charts. Their Christmas song ‘You Are Christmas’ was a finalist in the Radio New Zealand song competition, which they performed on ’Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan.’ They we’re also invited to perform the song with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra at the Town Hall in December 2018.
