The Blues Preachers

Daniel Cross + Keiran Morris

The Blues Preachers Dead Catz Can Bounce Bounce up off your Lounges ! Stop Watching The News & Come To Celebrate Life With The Blues Preachers

The Blues Preachers will take you to another place and time, somewhere between 1920 and 1940. Their music paints a landscape of pre-war struggle and determination with sounds reminiscent of the Deep South. The Blues Preachers perform a fusion of good old blues, rags, gospel and hillbilly folk. The powerful simplicity of driving finger-style and slide-guitar combined with the sounds of tasteful harmonica and old-school vocal harmonies create a traditional and untarnished sound that will have you on the edge of your seats. Their latest release ‘Dead Catz Can Bounce’ goes one step further. It contains many award winning original songs about the big issues of today: the global financial crisis, greed, relationships, global warming, materialism, life and death and the search for truth and meaning in the great age of misinformation. The Blues Preachers were 5th. overall in the Australian Songwriting Awards 2009 for “Divine Justice Coming Down” which also received a top 5 nomination in the Sing Out For Social Action category of The Independent Music Awards 2009.


“Divine Justice Coming Down” was chosen by Yoko Ono as runner-up in the John Lennon 70th. birthday anniversary song contest.


They received a top 5 nomination in the Acoustic category of The Independent Music Awards 2011 for “The Free Train Agreement”.
which was also selected to be on a Canadian compilation released in May 2011 called “Protest Songs For A Better World”.
