Dubbed “country music for city folks”, Snake Oil Preachers rock the cannon of country classics with their own unique hollering, hell-raising hedonism, with godless gospel and heartless heartbreak.

Formed in the crucible of the hardest winter on record, Canberra’s very own Snake Oil Preachers are a salve for your tender hearts, a balm to your worried minds and stimulation for your weary ears. Drawing on the rich tradition of music made by sinners, for sinners, about sinners, our mission is simple, yet profound – punch out a couple of sets of shimmering, soulful, tough (but yet sensitive) tunes that will get you toe-tapping, dancing and thanking the universe for whatever senses you have left. Our practical philosophy for living comes from Saint Nancy and we thank her for giving us the inspiration ... “one night of praying and six nights of fun”.
