“Barnstorming blues and roots!” – The Daily Telegraph
Dubbed “a new take on old standards”, Grizzlee Train are a romping stomping blues/rock act from the NSW Central Coast. Longtime mates Brandon Dodd & Josh Dufficy take the sound of vintage blues and drench it with filthy modern guitar licks and pulsating percussion. They are fast becoming one of Australia’s favourite up-and-coming live acts, with an arsenal of acclaimed EP’s behind them.
Since officially launching in late 2013, this energetic pair have already won a stack of awards, including being winners of the 2015 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Competition. Dodd & Dufficy have shared stages and festival bills with some of the world’s finest acts across Australia, Europe & the United States, all the whiles building a reputation for being one of the hardest working touring bands in the industry. They have spent much of the past three years also touring nationally and internationally as part of the Kasey Chambers band – playing to sold out stadiums and theatres supporting the likes of Kenny Rogers and The Eagles.
“Grizzlee Train are a sweet & soulful band, two seriously fine players” – Jimmy Barnes
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Come Back Around’ (featuring the singles ‘Soldier For You’ & ‘Morning Bell’), a hectic 2015 saw the band juggle more international tours whilst continuing to write and record their next release. In January 2016, they unveiled their second EP ‘Burned Him Again’, under the vision and guidance of award-winning producer Nash Chambers. Flying the flag for independent musicians, the pair continue to take their second release and adrenaline-fueled live show to audiences the across the globe.
Grizzlee Train blend an old school core with sharp new-age kicks - a stripped back firing of raw energy and honest music. One of Australia’s most exciting and energetic young acts.
