Swamp Thing

Bio

They're the two left in the juke joint when the hurricane's about to make landfall, when the revelers have gone home, sweat-soaked and exhausted. The bulbs are blown out, the floor's full of glass, but two men are honor bound to keep playing, pouring their sweat into the parched earth like libation. In the best traditions of two man blues and roots, Swamp Thing is a duo that you know are playing to stay alive.

A former member of The John Butler Trio, Michael Barker (drums/ percussion/ KeyBass/Vocals) formed the two man blues/roots duo Swamp Thing with Grant Haua vocals/guitar in 2010.

These two unique musicians share a wealth of experience to craft blues- flavoured music with a deep groove and soulful spook. Their first studio album ‘Balladeer’ was recorded at Roundhead studios in may 2011 and their second album ‘ Primordium ‘ recorded at Barker's studio Twisty Pole in 2012 was released in January 2013.

In 2012/13 Swamp Thing will played Australian summer festivals – WOMADalaide, Woodford Folk Festival, Blues at Bridgetown and Nannup.
Swamp Thing is very much their own monster.
