King King are the band to beat. Glasgow’s favourite sons have already been saluted as “the best blues-rock band in the world” (Blues Rock Review), credited for “setting the blues world on fire” (Classic Rock), nominated for Best New Band at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour and handed back-to-back British Blues Awards. They’ve proved their mettle on bills with Thunder and John Mayall, triumphed as far afield as Mumbai and taken the roof off major venues from the 02 Glasgow to Wembley Arena.

Right now, Alan Nimmo (vocals/guitar), Lindsay Coulson (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums) and Jonny Dyke (organ/piano) are riding high on the success of Exile & Grace. Mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder, Therapy?), this highly anticipated fourth album tipped them into the huge-time upon its October 2017 release, topping the iTunes and Amazon Blues charts – and scoring a career-best #31 placing on the official UK album chart. “There’s an underlying theme on this latest album,” explains Alan. “Some of the main songs are about the state of the world, y’know, this beautiful blue planet that’s turning into a battlefield. There’s an edgier, rockier feel this time around, but you’ve got the soulful ballads as well. It’s still King King. It’s just what we’re doing now.”

King King haven’t wasted a moment of their white-knuckle career. Formed in 2010, the band’s four-album hot-streak includes 2011’s Take My Hand (Maverick: “Tremendous”), 2013’s Standing In The Shadows (The Blues: “A sure-fire hit”), 2015’s Reaching For The Light and last year’s Live album that topped the Amazon Blues Chart and was called “thumping-good” by Classic Rock.

In 2018, Exile & Grace provides the fuel that drives King King forward to major UK and continental headline dates, summer festival appearances, plus a support slot on Europe’s Walk The Earth tour that will see them warming up crowds everywhere from Glasgow Barrowlands to the Royal Albert Hall. “This is the next chapter in King King’s journey,” says Alan, “and we want to take this band as far as we can…”


bassist Merv Goldsworthy and drummer Pete Jupp, the formidable Overland brothers – vocalist/guitarist Steve and lead guitarist Chris (both formerly of Wildlife) - plus the keyboard talents of Philip Manchester (better known as sci-fi nutcase Didge Digital), the band wrote six songs. The first public appearance of FM in the UK was on Valentine's Day of 1985, attracting rave reviews. The début album INDISCREET wasn't far behind. A fully-fledged masterpiece, every track hit the spot and the mega-ballad 'Frozen Heart' caused lips to quiver and tear ducts to moisten whenever it was played. Their touring schedule for 2018 gets underway with a set at HRH AOR in March followed by the band’s first-ever show in Greece.

From Grimsby, The Brew continue to grow in stature and ever since the release of their international breakthrough “The Joker”, this award-winning trio has become one of Europe's most potent rock acts, combining the musicianship of classic rock with youthful energy and a brash, contemporary outlook.

There aren't too many bands nowadays that get to release six albums.  Also, there aren't too many trios in particular that can defend the reputation of being a tirelessly touring excellent live-act, all of which while maintaining the original line-up.  The Brew are unique and they step back onto the scene with their new album, "Shake The Tree".  Released in the UK on 4 November 2016, as with its predecessor "Control", Tim Smith (bass), Kurtis Smith (drums) & Jason Barwick (guitar/vocals) relied on the fruitful collaboration with Toby Jepson and Veil Studios.  And their brand of modern Rock with psychedelic touches was in good hands and over the course of a month they crafted ten songs that comprise a sixth album, that has effectively outgrown any comparisons. 


one of the most exciting Blues rock singers SARI SCHORR.  Her debut album “A Force of Nature” is produced by the legendary Mike Vernon whose credits include Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall & the Blues Breakers, David Bowie, Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Christine McVie and Ten Years After.

Every now and then an artist comes along that blows you away and Aaron has fast been cementing his reputation as one of the most exciting and brightest young talent’s in the UK. We pride ourselves on signing guitar virtuosos and feel that Aaron fits into that mould. A mesmerising live performer with over 200 shows to his name; he has already played with Blackberry Smoke, The Cadillac Three, Tracer, The Graveltones and 2015 will see him go into the studio to record his debut record.






Xander and the Peace Pirates are a testament to musical integrity and personal strength. Combining soul, blues and rock, their pervasive blend of inspired song writing and memorable performances has already seen them enrapture audiences around the world.

Brothers Keith and Stu Xander were discovered on YouTube by Gibson Brands CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, and during their subsequent performances for the company at numerous international events from LA to Dubai, the band caught the attention of not just an ever-growing collective of fans but also industry legends such as Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Rolling Stones) and Rick Allen (Def Leppard).

Defying all expectations, lead singer and guitarist Keith Xander was born without a right arm below the elbow and plays guitar using a prosthesis and hook with a pick attached at the end. Although many who have seen Keith play believe him to be an extraordinary guitarist despite of his (falsely) perceived ‘disability’, he is a virtuoso musician in his own right and his playing rivals the best in the industry.

The band established themselves as a live-performance juggernaut after concluding their 5-year tenure as the resident band at Liverpool’s iconic Cavern Club pub and going on to support the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Joe Satriani, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, The Temperance Movement, ex-Whitesnake’s Bernie Marsden and Bon Jovi to name a few.

2016 saw the band release their debut album, titled ‘11:11’, on V2 Benelux Records, recorded at the world-famous Wisseloord studios in Hilversum, outside of Amsterdam. The album has gone on to receive rave reviews from Classic Rock, Planet Rock and from BBC Radio’s Bob Harris, who has subsequently invited the band to record 2 sessions for his ‘Under the Apple Tree’ YouTube series, as well as headlining his Warehouse venue in Harrogate.

With haunting riffs, ingenious melodies, and a uniquely infectious charisma, Xander and the Peace Pirates continue to share their musical passion to standing ovations, while spreading a universal message of peace, love and harmony.


Bad Touch originally formed in 2010 when the band members were still in college. In their formative years, they played local pubs and performed covers of some rock classics, and gradually began to compose original material. Over the last few years Bad Touch have started making a name for themselves and built a reputation for their dynamic live shows, making them on of the “must-see” acts at many local venues. In 2012, the band recorded their first EP at the Leeders Farm Studio – home of local hero’s The Darkness. The desire to get their music to a wider audience eventually led the band performing gigs around the country. In 2012, the band won the Exposure Music Award in 2012 for their live show, followed by an invitation to play Hard Rock Hell for the very first time. 2013 was a great year for the band. They toured the UK with The Quireboys and won the Marshall Ultimate Band Contest. In 2014, they toured with Bonafide, The Electric Boys and Tyketto, and played many festivals including Download, Steelhouse, Legends of Rock and Hard Rock Hell. In 2015, the band recorded their debut album Half Way Home at Foel Studios. Released on 27th April, the album received rave reviews from the rock press. 2015 was also a great year for touring with the band completing an 18-date UK tour with The Answer as well as UK tours with Tyketto and Snakecharmer. Bad Touch’s live shows garnered them praise and support from fans and critics. In June 2016, Bad Touch embarked on a UK tour with Jared James Nichols, followed by a UK tour in July supporting the Kentucky Headhunters. In July 2016, the band recorded their second album “Truth Be Told”, which was eventually released in December of that year to great critical acclaim. In November they embarked on a joint UK tour with the Australian band “Massive”. The following year, during March and April, Bad Touch toured the UK with Broken Witt Rebels under the Planet Rock Roadstars banner, and followed this with a UK tour in April and May supporting Britain’s award-winning blues rock band King King. During the tour, Planet Rock radio play-listed the band’s single “99%” which was remixed for radio by Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, Peter Frampton, Killing Joke, Bad Company). Over the summer they played numerous festivals including Ramblin’ Man, Wildfire, Amplified, Cambridge Rock Festival, Weyfest, and many more as well a supporting Dan Baird and Homemade Sin. They also supported The Kentucky Headhunters on their UK tour in October.

Gin Annie are a hard melodic rock 5-piece from Wolverhampton UK, featuring heavy guitar driven songs whilst maintaining a melodic vocal style, hook-laden choruses and classy melodies. They are based around the nucleus of singer, Dave Foster and guitarist, Byron Garbett.

Get ready for some serious noise! Since forming in the town of St Ives, Cambridgeshire back in 2015, Hollowstar have been hard at work perfecting their craft, delighting audiences across the country with their heavy-hitting dirty rock ound in the process. June of 2017 saw the launch of the band’s debut EP - Some Things Matter - to much critical acclaim, reaching 13th on the iTunes Rock Chart and helping to facilitate their first major steps onto the national and nternational scenes. Boasting regular radio airplay on some of the UK’s most prominent radio stations including the BBC, the lads have also seen their music gracing the airwaves in various countries throughout Europe and the wider world.

Comprised of four accomplished musicians in the form of singer/bassist Joe Bonson, guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett, and drummer Jack Bonson, Hollowstar came together with one simple mission in mind; to make some of the finest rock and roll ever heard on this side of the Atlantic. Drawing upon influences including Black Stone Cherry, Thunder, and Slash, the lads quickly set about achieving their goal, and were soon found sharing stages with the likes of The reatment, Toseland, Chantel McGregor and Stone Broken, among others.

Rock is once again rightfully on the rise, and Hollowstar look set to lead the charge throughout 2018 with riffs fit to grace arenas one day and a truly entertaining live show to match.
