Little Bushman is lead by the inimitable Warren Maxwell formerly of Trinity Roots and Fat Freddys Drop. Collectively the Bushies aim to create a journey without sounding contrived and the members have made a conscious decision to use influences from the experimental, psychedelic Rock era of the 60’s and 70’s: Led Zep, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who.

It is inside their poignant creations that we find the perfect balance of social concern and a ‘no fear’ form of expression. Unashamed musical indulgence resulting in sated emotional exhaustion…just beautiful.
