“Love the stompin’ blues sound…” - Sarah Howells, Triple J
Alternative Blues Rock band Smoke Stack Rhino was formed in 2013 and features dual vocalists, blues harp, twangy resonator guitars, five-string slap bass and foot-stompin' drums.
The group's first EP, Riverside, released in November 2013 gained airplay on Triple J and led to the group headlining the Icy Creek Music Festival.
After the departure of vocalist Ben Lawoko-Leaney in late 2014, the group looked to the example set by Deep Purple and AC/DC, and set out to find another singer.
In March 2015, Dave Sirianni joined the band and the four-piece resumed live performances, headlining the Arockalypse Music Festival alongside HARTS. In September, the group started recording their debut album.
Accompanied by a music video and an East Coast tour of Australia, the Stevie Ray Vaughan-meets-Soundgarden jam “Screwdriver Girls” was released in April 2016. The second single, “1851” was the follow up and pays tribute to boogie-blues artists including John Lee Hooker and ZZ Top.
Produced by Beau McKee and Smoke Stack Rhino guitarist Ash King, the debut album will be released on October 21st, 2016.
