Biography

There are at least two bands who perform under the name Dirt Farmer

(1)Dirt Farmer is a rock band based out of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.


Roll up your swag. Dust off your denim. Burn your banjos and start a rock and roll band. That’s what Dirt Farmer have done.

Hailing from Albury-Wodonga, the five-piece band have relocated to Melbourne. Formed in April 2010, brothers Stuart and Thomas Barlow, with friends Chris Wright, Nic Duplex and Patch Oram, met in high school and united over musical tastes.

Johnny Marble is the first single off their forthcoming EP; recorded and mixed with Leadbetter Productions (Sarah Blasko, Whitley) and mastered by Exchange Mastering UK.

Combining gritty yet crispy guitars, sharp drum grooves, smooth bass lines complemented with hand claps and harmonies, Dirt Farmer have been described as “The Velvet Underground on less smack and more sunshine”, with hints of The Rolling Stones, The Band, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Front man Stuart is no stranger to the stage. He is well-toured, both nationally and internationally, having spent the last two years in folk darling Lisa Mitchell’s band, enjoying stints at several festivals, including Big Day Out and Falls Festival.
