The Swamp Stompers play funky rock and blues with heavy grooves. Emerging from the dirty backwaters of Lismore (NSW) in 2012, the band sounds like the musical lovechild of John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Searing slide guitar, contrasting dual-lead vocals, catchy guitar riffs, and dubstep-inspired didgeridoo soundscapes give this original blues-rock band an irresistible flavour combination that will leave you with an insatiable hunger for more.
Since this fateful merging of musical minds, The Swamp Stompers have set about earning themselves a significant reputation as one of the most promising up-and-coming acts to emerge in recent years. The powerhouse trio has stomped their mark on prominent Australian festivals such as Caloundra Music Festival (QLD), Blues at Bridgetown (WA), and the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival (NSW), with rave reviews from punters and peers alike.
‘‘Catchy grooves, intelligent songs and youthful hunger – this band has the right mix of potions to take Australian blues and roots to the next level. One of my absolute favourites.’’ Lloyd Spiegel (Australian Blues Legend)
“We firmly believe that these guys will be Torch Bearers of roots music in the 21st century.” Neil Mumme (Festival Director, Great Southern Blues Festival Narooma)
The Swamp Stompers have gone on to release three EP's, with three consecutive singles landing in the Top 10 on the AMRAP regional radio charts. The band has also been played on Triple J and received a nomination for 'Best Blues & Roots Song' at the 2016 MusicOz Awards.
