The Railway and Beehive Live and Crockford Management presents:
Organically formed, South Coast Band, Wild Front, aim to pair the unrestrained emotions of music with the capricious nature of life. It came as no surprise when the band formed, as the four boys had been musically working together for years.
The band have self released 3 singles this year, all of which have had support from BBC Introducing and been added to numerous Spotify playlists, surpassing 100,000 streams.
Although 80’s rock and alternative indie is a love they all share, their primary musical influences are so different. Jack offers his love of folk and Josh studied classical music at university, whereas Mike and Joe’s musical repertoire ranges from West Coast hip hop to indie folk. It’s this exotic mix that creates their unique and distinctive sound.
Wild Front had a busy summer performing at Common People, Y Not Festival, Truck Festival & Together The People, amongst others. More live dates will be announced soon. The band write, record, engineer & mix all of the tracks at their home studio.
"If there’s any band that could better defy expectations, it’s Wild Front." - Indie.
"Their unique sound is rooted in diversity, but comes together to create something individual to them." - Earmilk
Born and raised on the coast of Bournemouth, Ryan has been making waves throughout his burgeoning career. With a bittersweet tone that’s not too unlike fellow singer-songwriters Ben Howard and David Gray, he is picking up a loyal following of supporters wherever he goes.
Ryan has been competing in BBC Ones leading talent show Let It Shine. Ryan made it into the quarter finals of the live shows and performed with the Kaiser Chiefs. Ryan claims this has been one of the best experiences, growing in confidence and working with of the most popular names in the music business.
Citing inspirations to his bleak folktronica such as Radiohead, Oasis and The 1975 his sound has seen the 21-year-old earn high praise from the likes of BBC One, BBC South and Forrest FM.
Ryan's highly anticipated debut EP 'After Rain Look For Rainbows' is scheduled for release in march 2017. Featuring track 'Sunset' that earned plaudits from newspapers along with single 'Oceans'. Crushing pieces of melodic pop, both anthems for the everyday man.
