Locally based singer-songwriter from South Wales, Will often plays as part of local duo Vine & Dandy and many solo gigs in the area, including the recent Sidmouth Folk Festival. His material is influenced by his surroundings, circumstances, and artists from Hank Williams to Joe Strummer to Lindsey Buckingham. Expect a collection of original country-rock, tracks from his new solo album (which is currently being recorded) and the occasional unexpected cover.
Exeter band MORNING RUSH are making big waves in the music scene in the South-West. The new year started well for the band, with a live performance on BBC Radio Devon, followed with being crowned joint winners of ‘Exeter’s Got Talent’ and receiving many high profile accolades.
These are just a few of the many recent highlights of an exciting journey, during which time the band have built up a big fan base with their strong harmonies and distinctive keyboard sound. The band write all their own material, and a track from their CD has been featured by TOM ROBINSON on his Radio 6 ‘BBC Introducing’ show.
After a busy festival circuit this summer, Morning Rush are excited to be back at Mama Stones, where they have previously headlined to a full house! Not to be missed!
