BIOGRAPHY

Since their inception in mid-2014, Melbourne band The Hunted Crows have been leaving crowds around Australia with sore necks. The band has played over 80 shows in their short existence, constantly performing to interstate crowds.

This vicious work ethic the duo displays has begun to pay off; “Crowds and performances are consistently strong, with much dancing , and crowd surfing.” [The Dwarf, 2015].

Their music has been described as "a heady blend of angry almost punk-blues riffs, with swinging drums and vocals that sound like the guy from Kings of Leon finally dropped his balls and started drinking heavily." [The Sludgelord, 2015]

At the core of their performance is a raw energy, one that is felt mutually by their enthusiastic crowds.Through catchy choruses, punchy riffs, and an erratic stage presence, The Hunted Crows deliver a powerful show, one not to be forgotten.

Band Members:

Luy (pronounced Lewi) Amiel (Guitar/Backup Vox)

Jacob Linnett (Drums, Lead Vox)
