Dirt Farmer formed in March 2010 and got together to unleash their own brand of laid-back, swagger driven Rock’n’Roll that has seen them develop from a fresh face into a force to be reckoned with on the Melbourne music scene.
Dirt Farmer are set to release their Debut E.P in April 2012. The E.P was Recorded by Leadbetter Productions (Sarah Blasko, Whitley) and Timothy West, mixed by Leadbetter Productions and Steve Schram (Little Red, The Vasco Era, San Cisco, Eagle And The Worm), and Mastered by Exchange Mastering UK.
Stu Barlow (Lead vocals/guitar) toured with Lisa Mitchell for some time both nationally and internationally at festivals such as Falls and Big Day Out. Nic Dupleix (Guitar/slide guitar) and Pat Oram (Guitar/ harmonica) have combined brilliantly in a lead/rhythm guitar swap which weaves naturally on top of a rhythm section that, laid down by Chris Wright (Bass/ vocals) and Tom Barlow (Drums),bounces, grooves and soothes.
The past six months has also seen Dirt Farmer share the stage with the likes of Husky, Caitlin Park, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Alpine, Tessa & The Type Cast and Hayley Couper.
With all this under their belt and an ever-increasing fan base in both Melbourne and Sydney, Dirt Farmer are definitely a band to keep an eye on.
