Destiny Song peaked at no 18 on the Go-Set National Top 40 on 14 July 1973.
Band of Light was an Australian blues-rock band formed in Sydney in October 1972 by New Zealand-born Phil Key on lead vocals and lead guitar from New Zealand-formed band the La De Das, which had relocated to Sydney.
They worked consistently touring from Sydney to Melbourne doing pub gigs and concerts whilst playing alongside Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs, Carson, Coloured Balls (Lobby Loyde’s band), Chain, Madder Lake and Buffalo.
Band Of Light immediately established a slow, heavy blues style dominated by Norm Roue’s stinging slide work. Phil Key also introduced a quasi-religious philosophy into the band’s lyrics that espoused racial equality, social justice and spiritual harmony.
