Loddy Whitmore

Loddy was born in Sydney, but relocated to the Riverina early 2000. Picking up guitar at that time he started jamming with high school mates on old Guns n Roses, Ozzy Osbourne (and the like) covers as rhythm guitarist, before switching to drums to play for high school punk band ‘Jerbal’ Featuring Sheldon Holmes, Kris O’Sullivan and Ben Lee

Taking over from Ben Lee after he had to move Jerbal was an original band who traveled all across the riverina, winning several talent quests and battle of the band competitions. After jerbal had folded in 2003, Loddy ended up switching back to guitar because ‘you can turn that down’, and started to take it a bit more seriously.

By coincidence it seems, the father of one of his high school jam buddies invited him to jam with newly formed ‘Rising Damp’ blues band.Doing blues with a twist, Rising Damp went on to play till 2009 and folded under tragic circumstances.

Apart from the regular session gig, Loddy now works and writes tunes, and is in the process of putting a band together with long time friend, JW.

Big thanks goes out to ‘RAHJ CONKAS’ for all the production and drum beat in ‘As it Seems’, cheers bro!
