First of all, we are Louis Coupe (17 – Lead Vocals, Piano, Guitar), Ralph Porrett (14 – Lead Guitar, B.Vocals), Tom Russell (17 – Drums), and Peter Davis (18 – Bass) and we’re from sleepy Shropshire in the UK. We like to play loud, innovative, energetic Rock n Roll songs and put on a show for our audiences. We have a range of influences, including the likes of Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Elton John, Alterbridge, to classical music. We like to experiment in the studio to find our sound, and not just put a specific label on ourselves, and we’re known for our long, rather extended jams.
We’ve been going for just over a year and have so far won Live Band of the Year 2013 and been named the 3rd Best Young Artist (2nd Best Young Band) in the UK. We have released a double A-Side single ([untitled] + Kings and Queens) and a 6-track EP (Caught In The Sun) which are both available on iTunes etc now! We have just finished recording 3 brand new tracks and will be releasing them as our brand new ‘Public Hearts EP’ which will be out on Monday 22nd September (the first track ‘Melt The Butter’ is available to stream on SoundCloud now!). We’re currently busy touring and playing around the UK but hey, if you all like the stuff, maybe we’ll make a trip across the pond and come play some shows for you guys sometime!
Thanks for checking us out! See ya soon!
Louis, Ralph, Tom, Pete – THE ROOZ.
