Arna Rox and The Truckstops are an original blues band from Melbourne, Australia, led by fierce front woman Arna Rox.
Famous for her high energy, unpolished, unapologetic stage presence, Rox commands the space with her equally raw husky vocals. Rox is a force to be reckoned with. Having spent the past 7 years as lead singer of international rock band Trainwreck Trio, she now brings her wine soaked, tobacco fuelled vocals to the genre she was made for, the blues.
Enter The Truckstops, where co-writers and collaborators Chris Canning (harp/sax) and Steve Basenfelder (guitar) support Rox’s explosive vocals with an honest, earthy sound.
Following the release of their debut album ‘You Should Know’, the band announced their first European tour in June 2017. They toured festivals and venues across Austria and Germany, including the prestigious ‘Club Of Newchurch’ Festival. They then returned home to continue touring and promoting their album, to which they were nominated for ‘Best Emerging Act’ at The Melbourne Blues Awards. 2018 saw more touring across Australia and Europe, including headlining The Retreat Hotel’s massive lineup for the famous ‘Sydney Rd Festival’ in Brunswick. The Truckstops have announced an even bigger tour lined up for 2019!
