  • Bio

Emerging from Australia’s rich song-writing scene, soul roots trio Wanderers have cemented their place with a captivating live show and musicianship that has translated effortlessly from record to stage. While debut EP Goddamn Anything established them as a band to watch, it’s their latest EP Something For A Distraction that is set to bring Wanderers to everyone’s attention.

After many hours spent travelling Australia and playing shows of all sizes in 2016, the trio has refined its sound, hitting its stride with a tightness that can only come after spending hours with each other on and off stage.

Led by vocalist/guitarist Dusty Lee Stephensen, Wanderers have formed an unbeatable dynamic, with drummer Matt Birkin and bassist Benny Morris each bringing flair to the mix. They came together from various other projects, yet the music Wanderers have been producing since 2014 has focused on exuding individuality that sets them apart from the rest.

‘…what followed was Wanderers’ trademark symphony of moods- the shredding of guitar riffs, dreamy harmonies, funky bass and a general feeling of nostalgia.’This is Radelaide, Live Review
