he Swamp Stompers play funky rock and blues with heavy grooves. Emerging from the dirty backwaters of Lismore in 2012, the three band members have since been banished to far-flung swamps across Wollongong, Katoomba, and Old Bar NSW. The band sounds like the musical lovechild of John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, with three-part harmonies, catchy guitar riffs, and dubstep-inspired didgeridoo soundscapes setting this original blues-rock trio apart from the pack.
The powerhouse trio have stomped their mark on prominent Australian festivals including Caloundra Music Festival (QLD), Blues at Bridgetown (WA), and the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival (NSW). Renowned for their incredibly high-energy live shows, punters are often left in complete awe by the raw power and finesse displayed by this seemingly unstoppable guitar riff-driven beast.
“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
