The Strypes
The Strypes
The Strypes are 4-piece rhythm and blues band hailing from Cavan, Ireland, formed in 2011 by Ross Farrelly (lead vocals/harmonica), Josh McClorey (lead guitar/vocals), Pete O'Hanlon (bass guitar/harmonica) and Evan Walsh (drums).

The group has spent the past 18 months launching their explosive R&B assault on the clubs and festivals of Ireland, the UK and Europe, viciously hammering out a no-nonsense blues repertoire drawing from the songbooks of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Slim Harpo and more with the passion and venom of British blues groups such as Dr. Feelgood, The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.

Having already been met with critical acclaim from greats such as Jeff Beck and Paul Weller and been tipped by NME as the No. 1 new band to watch, it seems things can only get better for The Strypes.
The Knast
The Knast
The Knast are four young men with a vision. Hailing from Seattle, Washington, they bring to the table an enthusiastic love of music, as evident in their record collections of epic proportions.
Like their English and American predecessors, they are backward looking but forward thinking. With the help of producer Kurt Bloch of legendary Seattle group The Fastbacks, The Knast have found and encapsulated a timeless sound on their new long player 'Fingers Crossed,' released on Consortium Records.
Their first hit single was called 'Righteous and Ragged,' and there isn't a better way to describe their sound: they simply play timeless modern tunes.
