“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)
With more awards than you can poke a mojo hand at, what started as a hair-brained idea between friends medicating their way through jazz school over a bottle of red, has taken them on an adventure that spans the globe. A multitude of gongs suggests Lazy Eye deliver some of the best original blues Australia has to offer.
All has not been smooth sailing for the Adelaide band however. While broken down on the side of the highway in their well-worn tour van, Lazy Eye learned they had been named Group Of The Year at the 2015 Australian Blues Music Awards… where they were due to perform! But regional Australia, where the act cut their teeth is a long way from the famed B.B. Kings Blues Club in Memphis where they played to a packed house just one year later.
Debuting at number 1 on the Australian Roots & Blues Airplay Charts, their latest offering Whisky & Gin is a tribute to the rent party of old, and with Lazy Eye awarded Group Of The Year once again in 2019, it’s a party that is just getting started!
