The Spindrift Saga are an independent Australian act renowned for their tight live shows, “catchy rhythms, bright licks” and big alt funk rock sound. In the last few years The Spindrift Saga have toured extensively and supported the likes of The Living End, Thirsty Merc, The Rubens, British India and other music industry heavyweights. The band’s debut full length record “Badnormous” has received airplay around the country and cemented The Spindrift Saga’s unique place in the alternative rock scene. The band have recently released three singles “Batsh!t Bay”, “Musical Theme” and “Smile”. In July 2017 The Spindrift Saga played their first international shows in Japan.

With comparisons being drawn to the music industries alternative heavyweights, “these lads have crafted a truly unique sound best described as electrifying”. The Spindrift Saga is a head-turning power trio with musical ‘chops’ to burn who cover an enormous diversity of styles in their performances. Influenced heavily by funk music, The Spindrift Saga welds this syncopated groove element seamlessly into their rock roots. The result is a sound that could be likened to acts such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Living End, Soundgarden, Incubus and other industry frontrunners.

The band’s full length album release ‘Badnormous’ dropped early in 2016. The band signed to a independent digital distribution deal for the album, which is now available at most online music outlets. Badnormous was well received by local community radio stations and has been labelled as an important independent rock release. The full length album follows up on The Spindrift Saga’s hugely successful 2014 single ‘Marvin’ and their 2011 EP release ‘300 Hours and Counting’.

The Spindrift Saga

A couple of years back, we asked (maybe even begged a little) a good buddy of ours to help us manage the band! We got to a point where we needed help with all the stuff that goes on behind the scenes in a band and we knew Joel had all the skills and knowledge of this tricky industry to help us move forward. We twisted his arm enough and he finally said yes! We’ve been forever grateful from that point on. Wind the clock forward a bit to now and we’ve watched Joel and his partner Shay grow a pretty cool management and promotions business. They’ve just expanded and we are super pumped to have some other artists on the team! Massive welcome to The Swamp Stompers, Corey Legge and Sam Fletcher! You are in good hands! Huge thanks to J&S Management and Promotion for everything they’ve done for us! We are genuinely looking forward to seeing the profile of south coast original musicians grow further in our area as a result of the creative and passionate work from these legends! www.facebook.com/1071717342877433/posts/2109284699120687/We're very excited to announce that we are expanding our artist roster. Joining The Spindrift Saga are three talented South Coast acts, The Swamp Stompers, Corey Legge and Sam Fletcher. These acts have worked incredibly hard to tour and release amazing original music becoming prominent names in this region (and beyond), and we are really proud and honoured to bring them all together under one banner. We will be working to continue the growth of our local scene, to expand the opportunities for these artists and to showcase the wonderful music of our region to wider audiences both nationally and internationally. A bit about each of our artists and why we are so excited to have them on our roster: The Spindrift Saga have a catalog of around 20 recorded songs and have played 350+ shows Nationally and also Internationally with their first visit to Japan in 2017. Their debut album 'Badnormous' received significant airplay and launched the band onto the national stage in 2016. They have a long list of major supports having played gigs with significant acts like The Living End, Thirsty Merc, The Rubens, British India and many more. In addition to this the band have worked hard to develop their local scene, including the creation of the popular Nellijam Festivals that have been a joy for bands and audiences alike. The Swamp Stompers are an incredibly hard working act, having played extensively across most of the country (including WA) and over the years have become familiar faces at many of Australia’s major music festivals. They are known for their high energy performances and catchy songs. Their singles ‘Wicked West’ and ‘Shadows On The Wall’ both received airplay on Triple J as well as widespread critical acclaim. 2020 will see The Swamp Stompers look beyond Australia and play their first international shows across Europe. Corey Legge is a talented solo artist who’s original music and live performances have received accolades from the likes of James Taylor and Lloyd Spiegel. In 2018 Corey received a prestigious ‘Young Regional Artist Scholarship’ from Create NSW. His debut release ‘Driving Out Of Eden’ was both a critical and commercial success, receiving widespread airplay and positive reviews. He is endorsed by Cole Clark guitars alongside Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, and Xavier Rudd. Corey is also set to tour Europe in 2020. Sam Fletcher is the youngest performer on our roster and has all the talent and ambition to make a significant mark with his captivating original music. Some may know him as the frontman to local act Kumera Patch, who have already played some of the areas most popular festivals and supported bands like The Strides. Sam Fletcher’s recent climate action song ‘Now Or Never’ was backed by 350 Australia and received widespread exposure. Sam has new music on the way and will be embarking on his first national tour over summer. When can you see them all together? Well that’s happening too!
