The Strypes are 4-piece rhythm and blues band hailing from Cavan, Ireland, formed in 2011 by Ross Farrelly (lead vocals/harmonica), Josh McClorey (lead guitar/vocals), Pete O’Hanlon (bass guitar/harmonica) and Evan Walsh (drums).
The Strypes have spent the past 18 months launching their explosive R&B assault on the clubs and festivals of Ireland, the UK and Europe, viciously hammering out a no-nonsense blues repertoire drawing from the songbooks of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Slim Harpo and more with the passion and venom of British blues groups such as Dr. Feelgood, The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.
Having already been met with critical acclaim from greats such as Jeff Beck, Dave Grohl and Elton John as well as been tipped by NME as the No. 1 new band to watch, it seems things can only get better for The Strypes in 2014.
“The most thrilling live band in the UK” – Q
“Feverishly intense, raw and compelling” – The Independent
