WILLE & THE BANDITS:

Praised by critics and rock legends for being one of the most dynamic bands around the globe Wille and 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 and 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.
 
Essentially, Wille and the Bandits is a classic blues rock three piece, much in the vein of Cream or The Jimi Hendrix Experience and like these bands is pushing at the boundaries of their genre. Wille and the Bandits take their sound way beyond what is expected of such a traditional line up.
 
The band combines three talented and committed musicians who come from very different musical backgrounds. Wille’s exquisite slide guitar playing and powerful vocals are given perfect momentum with Andy’s innovative drumming, while virtuoso Matt, with his 6-string bass and double bass, adds a class and polish rarely seen in a Rock act. 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, basses and percussion within the same song, giving the audience a complete performance, which has seen the popularity of Wille and the Bandits grow at an exceptional rate.

 
“Their thoughtful ambition, allied to hard-touring independence, remains refreshing.” Classic Rock Magazine
 
“Wille and the Bandits are a blues rock powerhouse.”  Guitarist Magazine
 
“So many bands slavishly advertise their record collections and ape their heroes to the point of pale tribute. Wille & Th Bandits take their influences and refine and develop them into a sound that is entirely theirs.” – Blues Matters Magazine

“If you give them a chance, these Bandits may steal your heart – they have mine.”
 – Powerplay Magazine

    Wille & The Bandits

    Blues-Rock

    It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting rather than settling for a tried and tested formula. Ten seconds of Youtube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band that is very much about discovery and one best experienced LIVE!

    "Wille is a suberb slide player, I love what these guys are doing" - Joe Bonamassa 

    "Love the soul in their music" - Bob Harris 

    "These boys can groove and sing like whiskey angels and it doesn’t take long to realise why they belong on the festival circuit." - Glastonbury Festival 

    "This incredibly talented band excels in playing not just one or two musical styles but in fact focus on several genres to an extremely high quality." - Maverick Magazine 

    "If Cream had spent more time on a beach in Newquay they might have sounded like this." - Blues Matters Magazine 

    "Howling, cinematic psychoblues... Breathtaking" - R2
