Featuring Thin Lizzy alumni Ricky Warwick (vocals), Scott Gorham (guitar), Damon Johnson (guitar) and Robert Crane (bass), with new addition Chad Szeliga on drums (Breaking Benjamin, Black Label Society). Black Star Riders are the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story, with a sound that retains that classic feel but is very much its own as well.
Stone Broken are a four-piece hard rock outfit, hailing from the Midlands, making arena rock with a huge sound and big choruses. You can hear echoes of Feeder and Reef in their sound, combined with hints of Alter Bridge and Nickleback.
“Who doesn’t like big, driving riffs and massive choruses?” once asked their A&R man Dante Bonutto. ”At last, a UK band with the sound and the attitude to make it possible for them to compete with rock’s elite.”
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
