Inglorious are five young men with a mutual love and respect of the classics of Hard Rock music, big guitar riffs, and soulful vocals. Their influences stem from iconic Rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born! The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to Inglorious. This is the music they were born to play together - inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, and Aerosmith. Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion.

There isn’t much Welsh guitar legend Phil Campbell hasn’t done. From three-plus decades as Motörhead’s axeman to being voted number 20 in the pole of top 100 Welsh Heroes (comfortably beating JPR Williams, Roald Dahl and Sir Anthony Hopkins) to covering a Norweigian promoter in squirty cheese, Pontypridd-born Campbell continues to live life to the fullest with guitar in hand and humour intact. "Eschewing the grittier and scuzzier elements of Motörhead’s aesthetic for a far cleaner, punchier approach, the energy is high and there’s a rich seam of enjoyment. Think classic rock with a metal production (pinpoint-perfect guitar tones, a snare sound to die for) and a sh**tload of swagger" - Louder Sound

Wayward Sons is fronted by Toby Jepson, former vocalist of the highly successful 90s rock band Little Angels, joined by Nic Wastell on bass (Chrome Molly), Phil Martini on drums (Spear Of Destiny, ex Quireboys, Joe Elliot’s Down and Outs), Sam Wood on guitar (Treason Kings) and Dave Kemp on keys (also ex Little Angels). Passionate, honest music made by passionate honest musicians, these wayward sons have come together to create rock music that reflects their heroes from the 70s and 80s. "Don’t expect ballads and slow burning numbers think instead a classic 60s slightly blues-tinged rock and roll working band. A band that sounds tight but is there to ultimately entertain you. This is rock and roll, mainlined" - The Moshville Times "While this might be built on the Rock and Blues of the ’70s and ’80s, what they offer is vibrant, current, and edgy. It still has a lot of what Little Angels were so brilliant at, and nearly 30 years on from their 1988 debut album, Too Posh To Mosh, Jepson still has the verve of a young man" - Cryptic Rock
