Smoke Stack Rhino are a four-piece band from Melbourne, Australia renowned for their unique blend of Blues, Grunge, Southern Rock and Funk.
Formed in 2013 around the concept of “bringing the blues back to the mosh pit”, the band has successfully reconciled the gap across the blues, roots and rock music genres.
The band recently self-funded and released its debut album, “Love and Other Monsters”. In what could be a first for an Australian artist all recording, mixing, mastering, production and publicity for the album was financed through 2 years of live performances.
The group has further solidified its reputation as a audience-favourite on the Australian festival circuit. The band headlined the 2015 Arockalypse Music Festival, 2013 Icy Creek Music Festival, closed the 2014 Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival and was invited to play the official MOJO Burning Festival after-party.
Alongside these achievements the group has recorded two EPs, received airplay on national radio stations Triple J and Triple M, supported international artists, toured nationally and released two music videos.
“Catchy, bluesy, rootsy rock...” Ugly Phil, Triple M
“Love the stompin’ blues sound…” - Sarah Howells, Triple J
