“…a letter perfect blend of folk and blues, one of the best I’ve ever heard.” – Mark S. Tucker (The Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange, U.S.A)
“Great feel band – great songs.” – Russell Morris
The Leigh Sloggett Duo brings together the singing, songwriting and guitar playing talents of Leigh Sloggett with the percussion skills of Rob Groves. They perform original blues, roots and folk-blues with Leigh’s distinctive husk-tinged vocals and compelling musicianship on both lap-slide and open-tuned guitars, driven and punctuated by Rob’s expressive drumming. Leigh released his third album More Than I Need in 2012. The album went on to reach number eight on the Australian Blues and Roots charts and had radio airplay in the U.S. and around Australia, most prominently on ABC Radio National’s program, ‘The Inside Sleeve’. Leigh has mainly been performing solo at festivals, venues and clubs over the last decade and has toured internationally. Rob was a founding and member of renowned jazz band ‘Raw Silk’ and drummer for legendary 90’s girl band ‘Hotbox’.
