Q&A Scene: Zevon Hiltz – Werewolves of Melbourne


Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?

New Album is close, we are looking on Mid March Release. Then followed by a tour. More info to be released soon… 

What’s your favourite work at this point in time? 

Nothing specific…..So I must say the last year has been a favorite. I have been writing some great songs and the band are sounding top notch. So its been most rewarding playing to appreciative crowds.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why? I think as the bands sound is from the old school blues, So it would be a menu with slow smoked brisket & roast chook, (12hr) with a full bodied craft beer & a smoky double malt Whiskey…

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

Practice makes perfect.

Also Yuri the bass player wanted to say, “We were on tour I was in a moon boot at blues on broadbeach after breaking my foot being sober. Have a drink on me…..

What, or who, inspires you?

All the great artists out there from all parts of the world keeping the blues stayle alive and taking from the past and projecting into the future, we want to be apart of that.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

So many great songs out there?

Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen or Stairway to Heaven Led Zeppelin?

What’s next for you?

Mixing the album and a bunch of really cool festival and club gigs coming up.

What’s your scene?

Melbourne music is our scene right now and we want to expand that to the far reaches of the world.


Werewolves of Melbourne is an Australian band that blends the styles of  rhythm’n blues & 70’s soul rock. [pullquote]“seductive and electric blues sound, exudes a charisma and modern-day swagger”.[/pullquote] Welding a sound risen from the haze of the Mississippi delta region, the blues clubs of Chicago and the musically rich streets of their hometown Melbourne – it’s a look into the future of blues that has past, soulful as a preacher, powerful as a locomotive… The band has been wowing audiences with their electrifying live shows across the Melbourne scene since 2015. After the independent release of debut release EP “Black Diamond Ring” in 2015, the band will be releasing their debut album early in 2017. [pullquote]“the unity between all four fiercely talented musicians is perfect”[/pullquote] WOM have now evolved into a formidable force thru the blues, R&B and rock & roll music that they play. Journalist Kara B wrote in her review of the band at their Labour In Vain show, ‘seductive and grimy blues sounds with each band member relishing in the moment’.
