The Snowdroppers Interview

Formed back in 2007, The Snowdroppers are a unruly quartet who, alternate to what your urban dictionary may suggest, have taken their name from 1920’s slang for a cocaine addict. Featured as ‘artists to watch’ on various music feeds the Sydney lads are certainly doing things differently. Combining the best of blues, soul, country and rock, Snowdroppers have introduced these styles to a whole new audience in a whole new light. 

After releasing their debut LP Too Late To Pray, produced with the help of Azzy T and Dave Hammer, Snowdroppers have been touring around Australia and building quite a reputation for the live shows. On stage it’s the rogue charisma and stage presents of frontman Johnny Wishbone that will have you captivated. Snowdroppers put on a highly energetic set and if you don’t walk out dripping with sweat your doing something wrong. 

Lyrically the band touches on some heavy themes and are at times their verse is a little confronting but nevertheless get along to one of their shows and decide for your self. Currently on the Do The Stomp Tour you can catch them at the following locations:

June 4 - Crown and Anchor, Adelaide SA
June 5 - Grace Emily, Adelaide SA
June 11 - Grand Junction, Maitland NSW
June 12 - View Factory, Newcastle NSW
June 17 - Armidale Club, Armidale NSW

Snowdroppers are doing what they do with a good sense of humour and a F load of jokes. I had a chance to catch up with the guys at Bluesfest for a bit of a chat. Freaking  hilarious...make sure you listen carefully!
