Grill are a Rock Fusion band from Sydney who blend the raw power of Deep Purple with the provocative grooves of Funkadelic to create a modern sound entirely their own. This contemporary band exhibits precision and sophistication, yet utilise melodies that permeate imagination and emotion.
Through hypnotic rhythms and lush harmonic texture, Grill absorbs the crowd into a zestful state of sonic exploration. Their musical prowess has gained a following of those who thrive on enticing cadence as well as dancing to heavy grooves.
With the release of their debut album ‘The Eternal Presence’ (2018) Grill toured Australia’s east coast throughout May and June 2018. Performing from Newcastle to Melbourne, their sold out Album Launch was not the only sign this group puts on an unforgettable show
“Grill, the forefront of new progressive rock in Sydney“- TheVeryBestCollective
“There is a lot of good progressive music being made around this globe of ours; this album is VERY good progressive music.” - Stephen Conrad, Progressive Rock Fanatics.

The band was formed by Kalon Captain (Drums) and Andres Rothsey-Rodriguez (Guitar) who were curious to explore the depth of their musical abilities. The duo began their studies at a very young age, and then with the addition of Jarrah Dhyan, the trio delved deep into the world of heavy metal. The three then decided to further pursue their musical interests at the Australian Institute of Music, studying other forms of contemporary music such as jazz and funk.
Meeting lead singer/bass guitarist Robert Mouat during their bachelor of Music, the band recognized his soaring vocal range and musical versatility. They were confident he was the final member of the group.
Together they have played at many venues along the East Coast of Australia including; The Metro Theatre, Frankie’s Pizza, The Bald Faced Stag, The Vault (Newcastle) and The Fusebox, Woody’s Bar (Melbourne), The Reverence Hotel (Melbourne) and The Roxy Room (Katoomba).
