Dysfunction are Griffin Potter, TJ Barrett, Jack Casey and Oli Naglost. The band formed in 2016 and are based in Sydney, Australia.
Dysfunction plays a rare mix of pop punk with metal core influences, resulting in a truly unique sound. Their dedication and commitment to writing and performing is extraordinary, especially considering the average age of the band is just 17.
Griffin is the lead vocalist and covers many vocal styles, from hard rock to pop ballads. TJ is a passionate musician currently studying at the Australian Performing Arts Grammar School. He definitely stands out on-stage with his signature face mask and left-handed guitar. Jack is the band’s bassist and a leader in the bands song development and production. Oli is on drums and backing vocals and drives the pop punk influences of the group.
The band is mentored by Big Music's Ash Rothschild, also of Panic Syndrome and formerly Caligula.
