Biography

Waking up on the floor of an unfamiliar house, mouths tasting of Beer and whiskey, brothers Sean and Wayne Jackson and friend Nik Shultz vaguely recall the events of the night before. Possibly the best New Year’s Eve party ever (possibly the worst hangover ever as well), the highlight of the night was a decision for the three to form a band. And so, on New Year’s Day 2010, Trashqueen was unleashed on the world.

Combining a hazy swagger of Fuzzy slide guitar, dirty grooves and raspy cigarette singed vocals, TrashQueen's concoction of garage blues rock Takes heavy influence from 60’s & 70’s bands such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Hendrix and the rolling stones.
