EBB N FLO BIO

Since forming in Coffs Harbour, NSW in 2009, Ebb N Flo have continued to develop their unique blend of Roots Rock Reggae. The solid 7 piece have established themselves as crowd favorites and party starters on the touring and festival circuits.

Having shared the stage with many industry heavy weights Ebb N Flo have again returned to the studio to follow up their well received debut EP “House Of Love” with their new single “Bump N Grind”. With the winter now over, Ebb N Flo will embark on an East Coast Australian tour to celebrate the release of their new single and music video.

The new release also sees the line up of Ebb N Flo change. As some former members parted ways to take on new challenges, the band went into hibernation during most of 2014 only to emerge from slumber like a hungry bear needing to fill an empty stomach. With new blood coming into the Flo, they not only take on a new look but vibrantly fresher sound. As their singer, guitarist and songwriter Martin Rudolph explains, “it’s refreshing, every song has a life of its own and keeps growing as we do as a band”.
