Eddie Boyd & The Phatapillars are a trio of mountain men - Sydney Blue Mountains men actually - and while not actually hillbillies, the barefoot, front porch, banjo pickin’, pig squealin’ vibe seems to have been passed down to them somehow.

The band has managed to mash the hillbilly vibe together with the sounds of Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, The White Stripes and everything else an Aussie bloke born in the 90’s is likely to have come across in his travels. Their sound is riff-driven, and different from the musings of the current apprentices of Australian roots music. They maintain a folky edge and deliver it all with wild abandon, passion and plenty of decibels. It’s a sound that has seen them take line honours in the 2014 Bluesfest Busking Competition, securing them a place on the 2015 festival.

They’ve landed themselves some pretty cool festival appearances so far, including The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival and The Dirty Roots Festival in Wollongong, as well as the aforementioned show at Bluesfest in Byron. The band has headlined successful shows in Sydney and surrounds and has made some inroads into touring the East Coast including supports with stablemates Chase The Sun, Marshall Okell and Cass Eager.
