Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight

Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight with their brand of rocking and rolling Music. Before the Rebels took to the stage the night opened with Sonia Leigh. Sonia’s band whilst she is over from Nashville Tennessee are The Healers with Katy Hurt on backing vocals. What an amazing voice is the first thing you notice about diminutive Sonia. Full of textured gravel swirling around melodic tones delivering songs full of emotional intent. Sonia is a rocked up Mary Gauthier. The set was shimmering with powerful intent as country rocked and rolled as her vocals were supported by the percussive rhythmic shaping and guitar playing from Steve, Ace & Gab who are the Healers. With her new album Mad Hatter we were treated to Jack Is Back, wow this is a band that wants you to have fun as the set included My Name is Mary, Rocking In The Moonlight and Shelter. Sonia and the band surrounding her tonight played music that warmed the venue and left a lasting impression. We all agreed the set was far too short as they closed with Alabama Band full of Southern Rock and energy. We were ready and waiting to shout Up The Rebels as the main band of the night set foot on a stage in Bristol for the second time. Short break and our wishes were granted, first time playing on a boat for the Rebels the third time this year Bluesdoodles were excited to once again be listening to Broken Witt Rebels. Tonight they hit the ground running with Low from their self-titled debut album. The crowd need no encouragement from Danny Core to join in they were soon singing along confirming this as a firm favourite when played live & loud. The set flowed warming the atmosphere, with Breathless one of the new numbers on the album, Bang Bang and Howlin. We were now deep in the zone that Broken Witt Rebels create when playing live, they have a special sound blending influences as this Midlands based band meld Southern Rock with country with the drive of Brit-Pop pulled together by the talented and ebullient energy of front man Danny Core whose vocals connect to the audience. His vocals, groan, cry, beseech and take you to a special place as the tonal depth sends shivers of pure delight down your spine. This is a quartet of musicians who understand the intricacies of the sound they create and love playing the music. Danny’s vocals will always gain your attention but without the soaring driving platform of the other musicians it would be a voice and nothing more. Tonight James Tranter’s backing vocals were smooth and his guitar playing clever with hooks that pulled Danny’s vocals in, and riffs that hit home with the audience that showed the clever use of his pedal board. Then the rhythm section never to be ignored when the Rebels play their brand of Rock as Luke Davis on bass and James Dudley’s drumming combine to give every number a percussive deeper growling force. With fabulous backing vocals from James and Luke the choruses build and connect the verses and how the audience loved to add their voice. With two new numbers inspired and reflecting on their recent US tour opening for Whiskey Myers. Fearless, this reflects the playing of a band that is fearless in their intention for the whole venue to have fun. We rocked long and hard and like the music the boat stayed steady in its delivery. Followed by Give It Up, from tonight’s performance, that is definitely not a consideration for a band on this form. The musicianship was top-notch. The current single now was played live, however good the music is on a radio, when played live it takes on a new deeper energy and that was the case tonight with Wait for You. Now let’s have some drama, as they continued putting a Spell on You a highlight that glimmered brightly in a set of seventeen songs that were glorious from the first note to the last note. An acoustic guitar was picked up by James, as he and Danny stepped off the stage as Danny explained ‘going to try something different’. Turn On me, performed pure acoustic in the heart of the crowd who were spellbound. For me once again the centre-piece of the night was Georgia Pine which they nailed tonight live and will always be that special song, the one that caught my attention when I heard the EP Georgia Pine for the first time. Every time you hear this young band play they just keep getting better, songs you know like the closing numbers Snake Eyes and Guns prove that. Always full of rebelling attitude now they have been shaped and honed into a pressure pack of controlled energy that bursts out of the blocks as the energy builds and grows to a thunderous climax. From the performance tonight and the length of the queue at the Merch desk Broken Witt Rebels are welcome to return to Bristol anytime and we say make that soon, your music rocked our boat tonight.Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight

Broken Witt Rebels Debut Album Blending Old With New

Broken Witt Rebels Debut Album Blending Old With NewBroken Witt Rebels Debut Album Blending Old With New, plus four new tracks.  The debut feels comfortable why? It is a blending of tracks from their two acclaimed E.P’s that had fans demanding a full-length album. The new numbers show the direction of travel and how far the band have come. A result of touring endlessly at festivals, opening shows and part of the Roadstars earlier this year.  In Broken Witt Rebels own words – “Our album has been a long time coming. It’s a culmination of the past two years of hard work and we couldn’t be prouder of what it’s become. We’ve crafted the record to take the listener along our journey so far, and it also marks a milestone in our career as we move from the unsigned world to being with a label. We’re very proud to have signed a deal with Snakefarm Records, and with the Snakefarm team behind us we can’t wait to take things to the next level.” Some will moan we already have the E.Ps. People always moan! But – many will not as fans have arrived at the #UpTheRebels party later than others. Bluesdoodles reviewed Georgia Pines but not Howlin’, now we have an early collection of the boys’ music.

Now to the album opening with a rousing upbeat guitar churning number with Danny Core’s vocals cascading across the instrumentation and we are not left with Loose Change with the opening number. We are on the road with a band that wants you to have a good time, loud, raw and full of youthful verve and direction. Once heard the distinctive sound will never be forgotten. This is the sound that has got us so excited when they opened for Whiskey Myers, Joanne Shaw Taylor, The Cadillac Three (Ireland & mainland Europe) and played at Festivals. The four new songs are little nuggets of brilliance scattered amongst the better-known numbers.  From the heavy jam band groove of Loose Change through to the final song of the album Wait For You which provides a slower, gentler soulful side of Danny and the band. Here they close the album with an artful weaving of modern sound collecting the roots of popular music, soul and blues with a crackling edge of tension. The tension shaped by the earthy vocals of Danny Core that just pop out at you on every track.  The first of the other two new numbers, Snake Eyes, feels familiar if you have heard the band live and is stunning; the opening is beguiling as you wait with bated breath for the song to fill out. This is rock that rolls with a blues shimmer and leaves you wanting to hear more.  The fourth in the quartet of new numbers leaves you Breathless with soulful wonder.  This is a number that ebbs and flows showing the bands dexterity shaping the sound around Danny’s many-textured vocals. The drumming is ear-catching and builds the tension as Danny sings “Give me Soul, Lose My Mind, Take Control, Trust in You is all I ‘ve Got”; pleading and emotive as he sings the lines so carefully crafted.

Much has been written about the E.P.s that are re-showcased here. It is definite they deserve another airing so new fans can appreciate and love the early music. They give context to the new music how the band is shaping and developing their sound. For me, it was Georgia Pines that opened my eyes to the potential of the band and Georgia and Low still leave me with that spine quivering delight that hits the right spot. Guns powers out a real contrast to the preceding number Breathless.

Broken Witt Rebels – with a self-titled debut album have jumped the hurdle met fans demands there is an album. Now we all eagerly await the feared sophomore album. This will be all new singing as the West Midland band continues to fuse the sound of British Blues Explosion with Southern Rock and weave in influences from Temperance Movement through to Black Stone Cherry. They are a crossover band. Broken Witt rebels are crossing the divide of being unknown to the world stage and this album consolidates their mission as Danny said when we interviewed him to conquer the music world. Broken Witt Rebels Debut Album Blending Old With New will be played loud and often until they next play live and the second album hits the decks. Up The Rebels is the shout you hear.

April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchSpring sunshine warming  Cardiff pavements, but not as hot as The Globe scorching from the two rock n roll sets from rising British Bands 2017 Planet Rock Roadstars show; Broken Witt Rebels & Bad Touch. First up in a lava flow of Rock from the red hot Birmingham band Broken Witt Rebels. Many bands would leave the crowd-pleasing signature number that Low, from the acclaimed EP Georgia Pine, has become. BUT, not the rebels this is the opening track they are opening on a high. High flowing rock that rolls around The Globe the crowd are jumping with delight they want more and more of Danny’s power blazing vocals, they are howling so the next number is perfect for the atmosphere created on a Sunday night, live music that Is Howlin’ good.  Broken Witt Rebels are tight, they are having a great time playing the music we want to hear. This is a band that will rise to the top as the music is hot, tasty and created by a volcanic amalgam of music that shaped the seventies into a creative free form delight of classic rock infused with soul and whisky flaming southern riffs.  The beating, pulsing heart of the Rebels is front man Danny Core, his vocals and stage artfulness catapult the band to the top of the rock face of young bands with ambition.  He makes every song distinctive, the phrasing shaping the lyrics and the rebels behind him provide him with a trampoline that bounces with musicianship that sparks with attitude and flair. The drumming is energetic full of dramatic beats and cooled with phrasing and cymbal work from James Dudley whose sticks rise high and create the percussive tone for every song. Adding to the rhythApril Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad Touchm is the bass work from Luke Davis whose deep notes give us tone that takes us deep into the crater of joy that is the BWR music. Up front and on lead guitar giving Danny structure and his own delicious lead breaks, riffs and the hooks for Danny’s rhythm guitar as he described his playing ‘I am just a chord monkey’, James Tranter is the guitar wizard. At times through the set Danny sinks to the floor kneeling full of emotion, this is not in praying but in victory as the songs leap from a title on a set sheet into full blazing live glory. There is another chilled side as Turn Me On demonstrated that new songs are being added to a catalogue that has depth and that makes a live band great. Closing out the brilliant sparkling volcanic rocking set was Guns, we all know this from radio play and the number of times they have played the back catalogue.  The encore was Shake Me Down, Danny and the boys definitely gave everyone a demonstration of a rock n rolling shake down that made Sunday night fizz.

April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchShort break and many of the crowd took time out to chat with the Rebels and buy some merchandise to take home. The Globe was on musical fire as the red lights reflected back the heat of energy generated by live music.  With a young band from deepest Norfolk, there was nothing flat about the Southern rock infused quintet Bad Touch. The only task they had was following on from the dynamic crowd-pleasing Broken Witt Rebels to ensure the audience’s energy didn’t wane. Did they achieve this, Yes they did! How, Truth Be Told a mix of showcasing their latest album and the combination of front man vocalist and tambourine man Stevie Westwood, and a trailblazing secret, well not so secret weapon the guitar playing of the latest member of the band Harry Slater. The shape and approach is different from BWR, so we all wanted to hear the harder edgier rock from Bad Touch. Opening with One Night More, technical gremlins attacked the drummer George Drewery, who continued playing his loud hard drumming despite not being able to hear the rest of the band. Once sorted the band were firing on all five cylinders again.  Completing the Bad Touch sound is Daniel ‘seeks’ Seekings on guitar and bassist Michael Bailey who add such depth and tone to the Bad Touch Rock. Highlights of the set were Sweet Little April Roadstars Are Broken Witt Rebels and Bad TouchSecret from their debut album that hit the mark and Half Way Home.  Bad Touch are a sure touch that they will be making musical waves that purr with a lion’s roar of dominance. They have a sound that connects, heavy, hard and full of licks and vocal refrains that are earworms. We had cowboy refrains with Outlaw, softer with a sting in its musical tail. Stevie whirls and swirls tambourine held high but it is his vocals that gain your attention they have an attitude that makes them compelling on numbers such as Words I Never Say and then a different tone with radio friendly 99%. This is a number that has a little extra with its huge chorus and energy there is much more to be heard from these young guns of rock. Closing with The Mountain, we were left with Harry’s guitar fireworks and Stevie’s gritty vocals singing in our ears. Live music made Sunday sparkle with Rock n’ Roll.

Did they No they did NOT… why the set was full of rock and roll sparkle the glints of razor sharp sapphire blue fused into the rocking foundation of the Rebels sound.

TheyOpened with Low, from the critically acclaimed EP Georgia Pine. This is a number that raises the temperature as the band took us on a musical journey with tracks from this and previous release Howlin.  The musical journey was a road of interest full of hefty licks, and gentler curves. The vocals of Danny Core are immense as he introduces a new number into the mix Bang Bang.  finishing with Guns, this is a band that is blazing a trail that you want to get on board. Many bands have potential, many promise so much. There is no argument that Broken Witt Rebels are a tight unit. The timing is impeccable, the warmth with which they thank the crowd is heartfelt. The stagecraft is mature and they have the hunger to rise to their promised destiny.  The quartet collectively making a sound that entertains are James Tranter, Luke Davis, James Dudley and Danny Core.

There was an unplanned extended break due to technical gremlins. Well, it was Friday 13th, but thanks to the unsung heroes of a gig the sound man and King King’s roadie the troublesome lead was dispatched and the show was ready to start. Everyone in a packed Globe ready, waiting and eager to hear King King, and the voice of Alan Nimmo following the operation last year.

The set list captured the essence that is King King. The d combination of Wayne Proctor on Drums and Lindsay Coulson completing the rhythm section and to the left of Alan –  Bob Fridzema, with is Hammond C and Piano. In Alan’s own words as King King kick start of 2017 with their first show of the year “this is going to be some gig!”. The crowd of fans hung onto every word and note sung, and those who were hearing the band for the first time live were enthralled.  His voice is back, full of emotional cadences and tone every word he sang with pure delight the smile said it all. Rush Hour, from Reaching For The Light,  was stunning!! The addition of a 300 strong choir sending a tingle down the spine as Alan conducted hearing the lyrics being sung to him. A magical moment, only being there in that moment really explains the feeling, Being in the company of people loving the music, celebrating the moment. Live music is made up of thousands of these special moments. Bob Fidzema’s dancing King King turned up the Blues thermostat Live in Cardiffhands brings Long History of Love to life, then More Than I Can Take, from Standing in The Shadows took the roof of the place. Then two songs played with a dedication. The first was recorded for Facebook live and was for Alan’s Mum who has not been well. Get Well soon shouted The Globe, hello Alan’s mum roared the capacity crowd and then You Stopped The Rain, what a song the emotional power hits everyone who listens to the number in a different way but always deeply personal. followed by Take A Look, not often played live and a favourite of Merch Man and Driver Mike. Alan as ever connects with the important things in a band’s journey. With the new remodelled voice giving Alan confidence and a vigour that spread across the room his excitement at King King playing on a stage again was infectious. Crazy, yes, the room went crazy with this perennial favourite. Then far too soon it was time for an encore Let Love In and another opportunity for Choir Globe to get involved.

Danny Core Shouting Out Broken Witt Rebels Music Message

Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels Music

Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels MusicBD: I was delighted when I listened to Georgia Pine for the first time I was instantly excited by the music. The EP had an energy and freshness and makes me just want to get to hear the band live.

Before we talk about touring and the album Broken Witt Rebels is a new band for many so Bluesdoodles readers would be interested in getting to know you

BD: Let start with your first musical influences growing up in Birmingham?
DC:
We all listened to the music of the nineties, Brit Pop including Oasis and Ocean Colour Scene Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels Musicwho were from Birmingham. There are so many bands from the Midlands that have influenced us and who we admire from Sabbath through to UB40 via Zeppelin and Duran Duran.  We have definitely been inspired by early Rolling Stones, The Doors, both variants of Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green era and Stevie Nicks.

I began picking up the guitar and playing along to Oasis. I then started to play rhythm chords, etc. I am great at one of them you decide. No seriously, I am a chord monkey on the guitar I leave the rest to James. Having given him the foundation, I underpin him with some great chords.

BD: Genres have become fixed putting musicians into categories how do you define your music.

DC: http://www.brokenwittrebels.comBroken Witt Rebels are a mix of everything Rock with soul and blues. My vocals have a soulful tone we are a super-mix of greatness crossing genres, Whatever we play pop or rock or blues we will be the best.

BD: Well you certainly have musical drive a powerhouse Joe Cocker Midlands Rock!

DC: Like that.

BD: Tell us about the formation of the band and the roles you all play in developing the BWR sound especially your distinctive vocals which have a growl and also twists to empathise with the lyrics…

DC: We work together we all contribute equally. The start of a new track could be guitar lick from James or a crazy drum roll and we go with that. Luke may lay down a great bass line or I may mumble a phrase and we go with that. We build from each other as we jam out in the practice room. I have a good voice, we are all striving to reach the point where we are masters of our instruments. We are all good musicians, good friends all creating a high profile sound. It is the collective effort that creates the BWR sound. Our philosophy is whatever is for the greatest good of the band. We try to play for each other, building on strengths and so often we have realised less is often more. No-one is on a personal ego drive, we are all on the same wavelength.

We do not as a band try to be clever. BWR is not about haircuts, tossing hair around the stage or widdly show-off guitar. It is about the music that we want to connect with the audiences. Yes, I am the front man as the vocalist. The band will not let me become above the rest we are only interested in doing our music as a collective. It is about the four of us owning our music. I will never be the enforcer, head of the band we are together Broken Witt Rebels.

BD: Having reviewed the EP Georgia Pine, tell us about inspiration behind the name and selection of the five tracks

DC: The name of the EP comes from an old stoner reference ‘As high as Georgia Pine’. The starting point was a picture Luke took in Florida of Georgia Pine. James had a guitar lick and I said Sweet Georgia Pine and it worked. I explored the phrase and realised that it was what we wanted to do musically to be the highest trees on the circuit.

Choosing the five tracks was about creating a short-list from a number we had. With an EP you can continually develop and re-invent as you can hear when we play live and on the vinyl that is now available. The tracks worked well together and the two singles got airplay including Planet Rock.

BD: I have always been interested in the lyrics of a song. Where do you get your inspiration for your songwriting?

DC: Lyrics happen, when I practice I mumble things, sing melody and lines from top of my head. When I replay something always stands out then using that to write about my life or something that is happening in the band or something I connect with. I do not sit down and write a song as you would a poem. It is quite fluid, happens from a phrase or word and grows from that point.

 BD: I am sure you have many plans for 2017 and beyond for Broken Witt Rebels following on from the excitement of 2016 festivals and recognition as Best Rock Act – 1st Unsigned Music Awards.

DC: We are starting the year off picking back up supporting King King and into the mix is opening for local blues guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor and then our headlining Roadstar tour with Bad Touch. Through March and April playing across England, with visits to Scotland and Wales. The combination of opening for bands and then a tour will reinforce and expand our fan base.

One thing for sure is we are hungry to play our music, get noticed. We want to be a success, to be remembered we are not looking for fifteen minutes of fame then fade away.

We want to be the best band in the world, recognised for our great music, fantastic shows slaying everyone down with our music. We want a career, to make ourselves and our families proud we are aiming for sold out world tours. Danny, misquoting (Bette Davies. “oh Jerry, don’t ask for the moon. We Have the stars” – Now Voyager) but very apt we are aiming for the moon because then we will fall in with the stars – suits this ambitious young band that are determined to be heard.

2017 we definitely need a new album, not to have one would be a massive missed opportunity. We have the material we are ready to go. BWR fans will definitely see us playing in as many towns as possible across UK as well as playing Europe and hopefully dipping our toes into USA.  Musn’t forget we are playing up a mountain in Wales at The Steelhouse Festival which will be fun. 

BD: If you were putting together the perfect band with members from across the years (dead or alive) who would you have playing
DC:  Well let me think? It would be ……..

Drums: James Dudley
Bass: Luke Davies
Guitar: James Tranter
Vocals: (laughing ) Me!!!
Yes, I could think of the legends but that what they are from the past we are the future.

When asked about what music he is currently listening to the response was Georgia Pine, Demo’s new Broken Witt Rebels music I do not have time for anything else. It is all about our music making it the best we are hungry for recognition through music that is great and to be instantly recognised as Broken Witt Rebels.

 Danny Core Shouts About Broken Witt Rebels Music

Huge Guitar Riffs blowing through Georgia Pines

Huge Guitar Riffs blowing through Georgia PinesHuge Guitar Riffs blowing through Georgia Pines

thanks to
Broken Witt Rebels

Five tracks that will shape your musical listening. From the opening guitar riff Broken Witt Rebels hit that sweet spot of listenability. Yes there are huge guitar riffs blowing through Georgia Pines plus so much more. There is nothing Low about the opening track that sits at the high altar of rootsy rocking delights. Low is an obvious choice to be the early release prior to the April release date of the full E.P.

Broken Witt Rebels, are a young band from Birmingham UK; not Alabama, listening to the immense sound they create full of Southern heat and charm the confusion is plausible. The vocals from Danny Core have a distinctive tone that add to the layers of rhythmic sound. The voice creates a mood that is wrenching and drenched in emotion that hooks onto James Tranter’s lead guitar.

The tale of Suzie unfolds as Danny’s voice grinds around some grungy blues riffs that give old blues an uplifting contemporary twist. The title track is fast and has a feeling of movement and urgency. With Confusion the opening words reflect the intro and the drumming with its insistent beat from James Dudley. This is soulful rock-rooted in an authenticity of sound that will lead to comparison with Alabama Shakes and Black Keys. The reality is Broken Witt Rebels are grinding out there own musical furrow with bassist Luke Davis and the drums of James Dudley providing a deeply a rooted rhythm section. This allows Danny and James to explore the depths of the lyrics and shape the tone around the rhythm creating soulful rock, a driving force of southern blues. Getaway Man another change of texture this must be awesome live as the instrumentation builds around the vocals.

All too soon the dying notes of the last track Guns fade away. This is a band that have so much more material and exploration they are exciting, vibrant and bring a raw energy to the sound they create.

Enjoy the beautiful produced E.P. and get out and see them live you can feel the electric energy that would release onto the stage if not trapped in this recording with huge guitar riffs blowing through Georgia Pines. Adding into the mix vocals that remain long after the last note is sung. Broken Witt Rebels have nailed their rocking vibe to the Georgia Pines.

Bluesdoodles gives this CD EIGHT pawprint half inchdoodle paws out of TEN ….

The 5-track EP, released for worldwide distribution in April, is currently available for pre-order from the band’s official website . The first single, “LOW”, will be released as a music video with a Soundcloud link for free streaming on Friday 26 February.
