The Rustlers burst onto the scene in 2001 with the release of their "Broken Pieces" album, launched at the Riverland Country Music Festival & Awards.

Not since the early sixties have such songs been penned - sing-along lyrics, catchy riffs, raucous harmonies and unforgettable melodies.
The songs can soar with the energy of a wild stallion or steal your heart away with their raw honesty.
The Rustlers proved this again in June 2006 with their second album, "Sad Dark Lies", a batch of fourteen original new songs, just as exciting as their first offering.
In January 2008 The Rustlers released their third album "Leavin' Me" - another crop of original tunes. Listen to excerpts of all twelve songs in the Sounds page.
June 2013 saw the release of The Rustlers long awaited fourth album "Born To Love You". Another batch of originals and linear notes by Ritchie Yorke.
