Australia and Rock n' Roll has gone hand in hand for decades by this point - AC/DC, Jet, and Wolfmother have all hailed from the land down under. And the continent has another hard rockin' contender on their hands, Ragdoll. Comprised of members Ryan Rafferty (lead vocals, bass), Leon Todd (guitar), and Cam Barrett (drums), the trio has a new album, 'Ragdoll Rewound' and an upcoming Rocklahoma performance. 'Ragdoll Rewound' is a compilation of Ragdoll's first two releases ('Ragdoll Rock' and 'Here Today') plus four live recordings, one of which is a new composition, "Rewind Your Mind." The trio revisited the first EP and had it remixed and polished the way they had always wanted to hear it. Songs like "Foot to the Floor" sound leaner and meaner while "The Feeling" is even more epic! Any issues the band may have had with the original 'Here Today' master have been fully rectified here too; while the new master of "Tell Me" in particular is a lot more dynamic and more true to the original mix. With an intense desire to inject new life into the music they love; Ragdoll's mission is to dismantle the sometimes tired genres of classic rock, hard rock and progressive rock and rebuild them, producing a modern hybrid that both transcends and revitalizes the traditional rock genres. The result is a sound that's bombastic and intricate, a sound that's full and brash, leaving many to question how this trio is capable of producing a live sound more akin to that of a five-piece. And it sounds like Ragdoll will be quite busy for the remainder of 2014. They're doing twenty shows, starting in California, then the Midwest and culminating in Vegas. Then they will return home to Australia to enter the studio to record the material they've prepared for their fourth all original studio release." For more information, visit www.ragdollrock.com
