"After the last few years everyone has been through we really just want to pay our fans back for their
amazing support. The only way we know how is to come and play some glorious loud, live music." - Ryan


“Melbourne and Sydney have always embraced us like favourite sons and we can’t wait to be back” -

Leon Todd

If you want it done, do it yourself" sums up the ethos of Australian power trio Ragdoll, who have taken
their singular brand of hard rock from Perth, the world's most isolated capital city, to some of the biggest
stages in the world. Led by the powerhouse vocals of Ryan Rafferty and backed by Leon Todd on guitar
and Cam Barrett on drums, Ragdoll burst onto the international scene with their 2012 release Here Today
and and an appearance at the renowned Rocklahoma festival in the USA, which quickly drew
comparisons to classic power trios King's X, Rush and Trapeze.
2013's "All I Want Is Everything" and 2014's "Ragdoll Rewound", in addition to a grueling touring schedule
through the USA and Australia, saw Ragdoll refine their sound in a modern rock direction. 2016's full
length "Back to Zero" was simultaneously heavier and more melodic, drawing positive reviews at home
and from the USA and EU. "Back to Zero" drew comparisons to Whitesnake, Alice in Chains and
Shinedown. "Back to Zero" saw the band undertake their most extensive tour to date, spanning the USA,
Switzerland, France, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Australia.
Singles “Rust” and “Follow the Leader” came in 2020 which saw the band headline the inaugural “Perth
Rocks” festival as well as their most extensive Australian tour supporting melodic rock icon Kip Winger.
The advent of the pandemic didn’t halt the band’s momentum as they released not one but three live
albums over the course of 18 months.

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you?
