Lazy Eye

For fans of:B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, Booker T Jones, Howling Wolf, Led Zeppelin

“Powerfully fuelled by the soaring sound of Whetter’s B3, Graf’s fretwork is neatly crafted, pushing through the roaring organ sound when needed. Vocals are mostly shared between the members and show a clear grasp of the fundamentals of gritty, gripping delivery and soulful blues demands. This is a band that has quality and purpose at its core.” - Elmore Magazine (USA)

are the core of this retro blues collection, which manages to emit authenticity

despite the obvious legacy of its influences.” The Sydney Morning Herald
