What sets Collateral apart from the rest of the new bands is their combination of electric and acoustic guitar set against a big drum sound and throbbing bass guitar. They are loud, rockin’ and melodic. You can’t take your eyes off them. Ever since Collateral burst on to the music scene earlier this year, they have attracted attention from venues, festivals, press, and of course, rock music lovers everywhere. Collateral fit neatly into the current New Wave Of Classic Rock (NWOCR) with their rock anthems reminiscent of early Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Little Angels, Thunder, Skid Row and Tyketto.
 
Their debut EP “4 Shots!” was released in November 2018 and featured the rock radio single “Midnight Queen”. Collateral first came to public attention when they played Hard Rock Hell’s private VIP party. The 4 Shots! E.P. was recorded and mixed by Sean Kenny at Ten 21 Studios and mastered by Grammy nominee Robin Shmittz of 24-96 mastering in Germany.  In January 2019 the single “Midnight Queen” was remixed for radio by Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon). The radio remix was playlisted on Planet Rock for several weeks. The band are about to follow up the radio success with “Midnight Queen”  with the release of their new single “Lullaby” - taken from the debut album released in September.
 
Ripped jeans, cowboy boots, long hair and plenty of eye-liner, Collateral are a new generation stadium-driven rock and roll. When they first started out, they were known as the Angelo Tristan Band, with frontman Angelo and bass player Jack Bentley-Smith forming the nucleus of the band. Over the past five years  they have worked tirelessly to grow their music, fanbase and their profile.  It’s been a long ride, but their sheer grit and determination have seen them overcome obstacles and go from strength to strength. With the recent addition of new members Todd Winger (guitar) and Ben Atkinson (drums) and with the radio success of the radio remix of their “Midnight Queen” single and forthcoming single “Lullaby”, the boys have stepped up their game and are now attracting the attention they finally deserve.

 


Established in 2014, These Wicked Rivers are Derby’s entry to the new wave of rock and roll that is sweeping across the United Kingdom. Drawing influences from the likes of Black Stone Cherry and Clutch, the quartet have made quite an impact since their inception with their brand of blues-infused modern rock steadily picking up plaudits for their gutsy live performances across the UK. Highlights to date include the release of two EPs ’The Enemy’ and ‘II’ as well as a double A-side ‘Shoulda Known Better’ which received stellar reviews as well as airplay on the likes Planet Rock Radio and Hard Rock Hell Radio, and also landed the band the coveted Planet Rock ‘Ones To Watch’ accolade. The lads are a regular fixture on the UK live circuit, having toured with Tax The Heat, as well playing stand-out performances at Planet Rock Stock, YNot Festival, 2Q Festival, Breaking Bands Festival and Giants of Rock Festival to name but a few. 2019 has been a busy year for the band, working tirelessly in the studio on their debut album whilst maintaining a strong presence on the live scene. Still to come this year are appearances at the prestigious Torquay Rock n Blues Festival in October as well as their debut appearance at rock ‘n’ roll mecca Hard Rock Hell in November. With their debut album due for release early 2020 and shows already booking to support this, These Wicked Rivers are sure to be rolling into a town near you very soon - jump on in and enjoy!



Brave Rival are the South East’s brand-new rip-roaring rock and blues Machine. Hailing from Portsmouth, the UK Blues Award Nominated band features the powerful and beautiful twin vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. On lead guitar, providing dramatic guitar solos and crunching rock riffs is Ed “The Shred” Clarke. And holding it all together is the rhythmic backbone, the self-proclaimed engine room of Billy Dedman (bass) and Donna Peters (drums).

Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Tedeschi Trucks, Brave Rival offer a style and sound that you’ve always known, and yet never heard before.

Since their inception in the summer of 2019, Brave Rival have gone from strength to strength, featuring in Raw Ramp Magazine as one of the 'Top 20 Bands To Watch In 2020' and nominated for 'Breakthrough Act 2019' by Get Ready To Rock Radio.

At the turn of the decade, hot off the heels from supporting blues rock giants such as Stevie Nimmo and The Billy Walton Band, Brave Rival captured their raw energy live by recording their headline set to a gracious sold-out audience at Hook’s famous Echo Hotel Music Club. This fabulous set of early material was quickly released to critical acclaim as their first Live Album ‘Brave Rival Live at the Echo Hotel Music Club’. Keeping the momentum going, a Kickstarter was launched for their first studio album with the target easily reached by their loyal fanbase with time to spare. It was then time to repay that loyalty with a studio album. Little did they know however, that the world was about to change forever.

With the pandemic putting the brakes on recording plans, Brave Rival spent much of the UK Lockdowns writing new material via the power of Zoom calls and Google drive. The abundance of material produced served them well for the eventual recording of their debut album in the summer of 2021. Recorded at The Mayfair Studio in the picturesque Surrey countryside with producer/seducer Tarrant Shepherd at their side, Brave Rival’s highly anticipated debut album “Life’s Machine” arrived on May 6th 2022 to critical acclaim. Emerging Rocks Bands Magazine said it best when they described the album as “Boss blues energy from start to finish”. Similarly, Powerplay Magazine finished their ten out of ten review by saying that “Brave Rival have unleashed one lean, mean and well oiled machine!”

Tipped as one of Joe Bonamassa’s “favourite discoveries this year” the future is looking incredibly bright for this young up and coming band. A successful set on the introducing stage at the 2022 Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival in Skegness saw them win the competition, securing a deserved place on the main stage in 2023. The relentless gigging and hard work in 2021 has also paid off for the band with a UK Blues Award Nomination for Best Emerging Blues Band.

Brave Rival are a band on a meteoric rise, firing on all cylinders and are about to take the world by storm. Their unique combination of beautifully harmonic, soulful vocals, epic guitar solos, pounding drums and powerful bass serves up an infectious sound that is not to be missed.


Wolf Moon are a band that feature British singer-songwriters Kelly Lethbridge & Jimmy Owen. With a West Coast Folk-Rock influenced sound the gifted band has toured the UK and have already caught the eye of some the industry’s most prestigious folk with Guitarist Magazine saying, “Jimmy Owen is an incredible guitarist, absolutely fabulous playing!” and the likes of renowned music agent and journalist Pete Feenstra citing “Wolf Moon are what the Rumours line up of Fleetwood Mac could have been had they not imploded.” 

Wolf Moon invoke the untamed panoramas of the West Coast, shifting seamlessly from classic rock beats to sultry blues to acoustic ethereal folk and back again.

Their New and second Album 'How Do You See Yourself' is OUT NOW!!
