After 10 years, 9 albums, including 3 #1’s & 4 US tours, Stormcellar were reviewed in the December 2017 edition of Living Blues, the Roots publication of record since the 1960’s, marking a rare mention for an original song-writing Australian band.

Stormcellar has never shied away from following their own path. In a career eerily reminiscent of the Blues Brothers, they are now pursued with torches and pitchforks by Country folk, Blues Folk, Folk Folk, Jazz Folk, Pop Folk and other folk who joined the mob because it looked like fun was to be had.

'Defiance' is the third album in their 'Mid West Triptych', a three part concept recorded over the last 4 years in Australia and the US, the first two albums from which have already achieved a degree of critical acclaim and even a small historical footnote for their collaborations with rarely-recorded Elders from Kansas City. Stormcellar may in fact be the first band to write original songs for, and recorded by, Authentic Delta Bluesmen.

After a decade of pubs, clubs, bar room floors, festival halls, lounge rooms, festival stages and mainstream and even the occasional Arena, Stormcellar are one of the most prolific, constantly working, original writing acts in Australia today.
