KRISTEN LEE MORRIS & THE DIRTY SNAKES ARE BACK TO ROCK #AGNESBLUESFEST 2021
After their electrifying performance at #AgnesBluesFest 2020 Marquee Stage, get ready to get down and dirty again in 2021 with Kristen Lee Morris & The Dirty Snakes.
Kristen Lee Morris has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s most unique and captivating modern blues/roots musicians. Armed with a rusty guitar and his band of misfits “The Dirty Snakes”, his songs cut to the heart and tear the house down with blues music at the core, dragged straight from the swamp.
Morris’ songs have a freedom that encompass the power of roots and rock music and his raw musical grit does not come at the cost of losing lyrical ability. Not content with relying on dense grooves and solos to send his message, Morris’ words and stories inject life and emotion into his music that is rarely seen in the world of blues. From Chris Whitley, Neil Young to JJ Cale and Steve Earle – you can hear it all in Kristen Lee Morris’ musical stew.
His skull-rattling, Kasey Chambers-produced debut album Ruins shook the walls in 2014. His second solo album Post To Wire in 2018 once again re-wrote the rulebook on modern blues and saw the single ‘Cowboy’ chosen by Double J as Australian song of the year on their Tower of Song program.
Kristen Lee Morris, with his raw swagger and charm, plus the mighty power of The Dirty Snakes, are the filthiest musical gem to ever be mined from the Australian blues scene. And that's just how they like it.
