It’s a new take on old standards. At the core of Grizzlee Train is the wailing of vintage blues rock, but it’s drenched with a hefty modern vigour which gives the band a sound that is all their own.
Born & raised on a diet of Creedence & Led Zeppelin, it’s no secret that the dynamic two-piece draw heavily from a time well before their own. But it’s the injection of pure live energy which sets them apart and grants them a place among the world’s modern bluesmen.
Brandon Dodd and Josh Dufficy have taken their music from Australia’s Central Coast to audiences all over the world. They are one of the nation’s most road-worn bands, with an arsenal of EPs and international tours behind them.
Both ditching university studies to tour the world in a rusty tour van, The 2015 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Champions have shared stages and festival bills with some of the finest acts in Australia, Europe and the United States. They’ve graced some of the world’s premier festivals including Austin’s SXSW and Americanafest in Nashville. They are building a reputation for being one of the industry’s hardest-working bands as they tour the world in their own right, and conquer sold-out stadiums and theatres as part of the incomparable Kasey Chambers’ band.
Dodd and Dufficy are flying the flag for independent musicians as they take their extensive musical back catalogue and adrenaline-fuelled live show to audiences across the globe, proving themselves as one of Australia’s most exciting, energetic live acts.
