Big Merino


Big Merino plays original music that blur the lines between rock, country, blues, roots, soul and pop.    

Despite an obvious passion for what’s often termed ‘Americana' their music somehow manages to sound sounds quintessentially Australian - the words and sounds shaped by the landscape and our own stories.     

“a tour de force of classy rock, funk, soul and pop ... a clever and sophisticated blend of heart-stopping gospel-style harmonies and classy lead vocals ... beautiful interplay between acoustic and electric guitar ... searing guitar solos ... delicious horns ... pulsating funkiness ...  a deeply satisfying collection of songs...” - Bruce Elder - SMH

‘Sometimes’ is one of the most powerful rock songs I’ve heard in many years.  ‘Black Cockatoos’ is destined to become an Australian classic.

Peter Winkler - TheMusic

“Music so full it has more than three dimensions ... the aural equivalent of having your cataracts removed to find you have 20/20 vision and you are looking over the Megalong Valley.”

Louise Howells.

“Great songs, great songwriting and best of all - full of a real sincerity and commitment”

Michael Smith - Rhythms
