Big Pups is an acoustic singer/songwriter and plays original grinding country-blues music. Cover songs are recreated to suit his smooth husky tones and include songs by Radiohead, Abba, Johnny Cash, Brooks and Dunn, Garth Brooks, Prince, and more...
Big Pups travels to music festivals, country outback pubs, and select venues across Australia, Torres Strait Islands, Papua New Guinea, and New Zealand.
Based in Queensland, Big Pups can be found playing regularly in various venues throughout Cairns and Tropical North QLD.
Born in New Zealand’s icy depths, raised in Papua New Guinea’s highlands, and forged in country town Charters Towers, Big Pups music is a culmination of his adventurous life.
