Powerful original rocking blues


Formed by David James Smith in the summer of 2013, purely as a kickabout blues band for a group of friends - all pro musicians - to come together and riff out in a favourite late-night bar.

The synergy and dynamic potential of Jack Cable (guitar) Chris Ogden (drums) Russ Hill (keys) and Lee Churchill (bass) immediately inspired Smith to pen original tracks for the British five-piece. Already an established songwriter with commercial output, the singer/guitarist came well-equipped to dig deep into favoured influences, personal experience and a platform to express his guitar work. Smith draws from axe heroes such as Billy Gibbons, Dave Gilmour and Gary Moore, as well as the songwriting of Bowie, Gerry Rafferty and The Eagles.

After recording a 5-track EP in the summer of 2014, the band was on its way and the worldwide response via social media hailed the authenticity of its music.

As a strong following grew, it led to investment that enabled the recording of a full-length, professionally produced album. Coming Soon!

With vibes fleeting from southern rock and dirty grooves to blissed-out Floyd anthems, the bedrock for solos are in place. But the choruses are key, with soaring vocals and barbed hooks galore.
