Murder Mouse Blues Band is a 3-piece blues and roots Australian outfit mixing blues with folk and celtic music and coming up with something stunningly original.

 Started in 2008 by author and song writing juggernaut Adam Morris and one of Australias greatest solo multi-instrumentalists Jon Edwards it's not a surprise that the latest award winning album, The Thirst, The Hunger and The Horn, was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine and has taken the band to locales throughout the world. Insights into the band and their music from an IMA interview with band members says a lot about who they are and what they do:

"We do some serious genre bending, so our music has touches of Country, Irish Folk, early 50s Rock, some Jazz, Bernard Herman/Ennio Morricone type atmospherics, swamp, juke and pre-war nightclub blues. It's all over the shop, just the way it should be."


"We love playing festivals and love travelling to get there. Give us a month on the road travelling through a strange country and you've won us over. Anywhere there is good energy, live music and love in the air, we'll take it. If you don't have any, we can bring all three."

Murder Mouse have recently been invited to headline the One Earth Music Festival in Langkawi, Malaysia

 "The Australian band Murder Mouse were simply exceptional "

Richard Amery, LA Beat

 “Murder Mouse Blues Band was a huge hit at our festival and were a great group of guys to work with and get to know. Though they call themselves a blues band, they really stretched the limits.  Seamlessly going from slow, smokehouse blues to up tempo rhythms that got everyone on their feet, the audience never knew what was coming next. I’d definitely recommend them for festivals and major events.”

                Clay Brander  Sunshine Music Festival, Vancouver

"Loved the show, I wished I had booked them for longer"
