Stoker is made up of two sets of brothers hailing from two small towns. Chris and Jurgen ‘Borrie’ Bornman are from Rawsonville and Morgan and Redge O’Kennedy are from Malmesbury. Both of the older brothers imparted their passion for rock ‘n roll onto their younger brothers.
They kicked into gear in 2014 with the release of their EP, Fox in a Hole. With this release and Stoker’s revered live performances, they soon became the band everybody likes or want to be like. Festivals caught wind of this exciting band, which led to stellar sets at Oppikoppi (2014, 2015), Up the Creek (2015, 2016), Ramfest (2014), Synergy Live (2011, 2014) and Zeegunst (2015).
The success of singles Evil Shaker, Take a Stab and A Stranger Throne triggered the recording of their full length self-titled debut album.
