Lazy Eye / Press

“A tight, classy, hard-driving outfit. It is easy to see how they won “Group of the Year” in the 2015 National Blues Awards. Numbers such as “House Full of Trouble” and “Blue Tongue Blues” showed their considerable talents in both songwriting and performing.”

“It’s easy to see why Lazy Eye have been getting the plaudits they easily deserve. It’s the blues done well with soul and passion.”

“Evan Whetter's vocals are gritty with a velvety smack of soul”

“It’s a pleasure to see a weather-beaten Hammond fronting a band and even more so when it’s wielded with style. Such is the case with Adelaide blues outfit Lazy Eye”

“The universal recognition is testament to the hard work and drive the three piece have applied since their formation just three years ago. Their throwback blend of electric blues and old school rock ‘n’ roll has earnt them festival spots all over the country”

“Lazy Eye brings the blues into this decade and century but also manages to maintain the essence of it, which is great. Just as the English language evolves, so does the blues as it has to. I feel that Lazy Eye are very much in the forerunning of this and that is not often the case; I commend Erica, Evan and Mario for formalising this and carrying it forward. Long may bands, such as Lazy Eye, educate and entertain us, re the blues.”

“Another great new Blues Album that I just can’t stop playing. Lazy Eye’s “House of Trouble” released March 2014 is on high rotation right now and I thoroughly recommend it to all that like a big Blues trio sound – so many great tracks.”

“From the rich tradition of Hammond organ trios comes South Australian blues band Lazy Eye featuring organist/vocalist Evan Whetter, guitarist Erica Graf and drummer Mario Marino. This is their first full-length album, replete with original material that darts across the broad landscape of the blues.”
