About Wille and the Bandits

Praised by critics and rock legends for being one of the most dynamic bands around the globe Wille & The Bandits conjure up similarities with Led Zeppelin as they move from riff-tastic rock and roll to more acoustic sensibilities that only few bands manage. The use of string arrangements, oscillating delays and soaring lap steel guitar solos give the band an emotive Pink Floyd edge mixed with the groove and vocal phrasing of John Butler Trio, which leaves audiences in pieces.

From humble roots in Cornwall the band wanted to stay based where they feel inspired by the rolling hills and blues seas rather than chase the industry to the City. Their approach has paid off with the industry now chasing them. They have extended their touring reach right across Europe and as far afield as Australia and the USA to provide the sense of escapism and anti-establishment, rebellious spirit that Cornwall has been known for centuries.

With their fresh approach to blues rock music, Wille & The Bandits have been assertively carving a place for themselves in Europe’s music scene, developing a reputation as one of the best live acts around and capturing the imagination and interest of music lovers right across the globe.

The band were listed in the Top Ten Must See Bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and were personally invited to perform on the German TV show Rockpalast, a musical institution of global import.

The band combines four talented and committed musicians who come from very different musical backgrounds. The great musicianship with infectious songs has inspired praise from Rock legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis Rossi.

Throughout a performance the band can be seen playing a range of instruments, sometimes simultaneously, sometimes switching between various guitars, bass guitars and percussion within the same song, giving the audience a complete performance, which has seen the popularity of Wille & The Bandits grow at an exceptional rate.

About True Stays

TRUE STRAYS are lifelong friends, songwriters and country boys – Joseph James and James Cameron – from Bristol, England who are fast carving out a niche of their own in the UK Americana scene. Their music is a cathartic celebration of alternative roots americana and blues rock. Their songs focus on the dirt that life throws at you and how struggle can be transformed into something better.

The prolific songwriting duo draw influences from classic sounds such as Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Fleetwood Mac and modern retro inspired acts like Alabama Shakes, Gary Clark Jr and the Black Keys. From the rock and roll circumstances of their first meeting, in a sand pit in playgroup 30 odd years ago, they have completed countless UK tours, supported bands as diverse as My Baby and Elles Bailey, been jump started by Keith Allen, played by BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 4, played their first European dates, survived 70+ festival shows at prestigious festivals like Green Man, Boom Town, Larmer Tree and Shambala and have been featured on the Spotify’s Nu-Blue and Modern Blues Rock playlists.

2021 sees a year’s hard work behind the scenes coming to fruition. A recent invite to showcase at the prestigious UK AmericanaFest, a debut album and a performance at Black Deer Festival all on the horizon. With or without live shows, True Strays are not giving up on their Musical calling.
