Originally Sonamulate was a solo act, Justin Banks started Sonamulate in 2001. Justin recorded his album "The Rise of The Falled" with Stuart Stuart from Chartsong Australia in 2005. Afterwards Justin won first place in Rock and Alternative in the Unisong international Songwriting competition and later became the only person ever to win Unisong twice after winning 1st prize again in the following year.
Once this was accomplished there was a great deal of interest shown in this Album so Justin recruited Damien McCluer ( Drums ) Michael Miller ( Guitars + Vocals ) and Luke Hams ( Bass ).
