Their first album 'So Many Roads' reached no. 1 in the IBBA airplay charts, as did their second album, this one almost entirely original material - ‘Broken Man’ - which was also nominated for a UK Blues Award and was named album of the year by the IBBA. 

Their current album 'Burning Bridges' was released in May 2019 and has received excellent reviews from the UK and European music press.  It was the third most played album by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association in 2019.

A new version of Archangel from the Burning Bridges album

has been recorded over lockdown which was released on

Monday 29 June at 6pm (UK) along with a lyric video created by Kev Hickman.
