Hero Blues

Hero Blues is a truly unique band from Kent incorporating a wide range of genres into their folky sound, which is defined by uncommon instruments, catchy melodies and homemade technology such as the telephone microphone. Taking advantage of multi-musicianship and classical training, Hero Blues are an exciting and eclectic live act with a repertoire that ranges from quiet folk songs to loud rocky riffs to upbeat ragtime/blues. Luke Fraser (lead vocals, guitars and mandolin) Will Bouette (backing vocals, bass guitar, accordion and cello) and Sam Hague (backing vocals, drums and percussion and guitar) all attend the Judd School and formed 'Hatful of Rain' around Christmas 2010 and started gigging in early 2011. Now called 'Hero Blues', the band is working on developing a stripped down set to provide another side to their growing reputation as an "up-and-coming" live band, supporting major touring bands at venues such as The Forum. Hero Blues is signed with Relium X Records and is recording and performing as much as possible and has just released their debut E.P. Influences in songwriting range from modern bands such as Mumford & Sons, Radiohead and The Raconteurs to older groups like Dire Straits, Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac. Being tipped by many as a band to watch, Hero Blues are not to be missed.
