The Dirty Earth, born in 2012, has gone from strength to strength, redefining themselves to create their own brand of heavy blues based stoner rock.
This Sydney based quartet lead by founding member Raff Iacurto has evolved into a song-writing machine combining elements of 70’s stoner rock and blues. Non-stop gigs in their hometown of Sydney and surrounds has seen the band cement themselves rather nicely into the Australian live rock music scene. With Tenille at the mic The Dirty Earth are set to reach new heights. A sensational vocalist who can belt out a melody with the best of them. Sultry bluesy overtones and gospel of soul in her veins have her gaining new fans with every show. Raff flicks earth shaking riffs off his fingers, having honed his sonic storms up and down the East Coast in legendary band Thumlock. His unmistakable sound and riffs make him the envy of many a guitarist. Darren, lays down dirty, monster, grooves that thunder and roll like a hurricane, as solid as they come and locked into the drummer like a match made in heaven. Behind the kit is Leon, a machine of a drummer. This guy is often quoted as one of Australia’s best and it’s not hard to see why as he continues to push the band out to the edge live and the same goes for in the studio.
2017 sees The Dirty Earth’s launch themselves into the stratosphere with the release of their third studio album titled ‘Aurora’.
