Riff Reign

Riff Reign is a Worksop UK recording band, established in 2014 to develop and record songs written by Dave Wright.
Original members were James Bennett (keyboards & hand percussion), Pete Courcey (drums & vocals), Richard Nettleship (guitars & vocals) and Dave Wright (acoustic guitar and bass guitar).   Following Pete’s and Richard’s departure, Dave and James were joined by Richard Hall (drums & backing vocals), Linda Lawrence (vocals), Chris Pearson (guitars & vocals),  Russ Parsons (vocals) and Steve Roe (vocals).
Musical styles include Americana, blues, country, funk, jazz, pop, rock and retro rock ‘n’ roll, plus the band’s own indie style.  Much of the music has a USA influence - in 1963 Dave’s eventual wife, Gwen, joined the Beatles Fan Club and got herself a New York pen friend, Danielle.  Their friendship, which continues to this day, has led to extensive travels through the USA and Canada.
The band has released four albums plus a Christmas single.  All are available as CD or digital download at riffreign.bandcamp.com.  A blues EP will be out in early 2018 followed by the band’s fifth and sixth albums before 2018 is out.
Band members have recently joined Dave in song writing.  Chris wrote the lyrics to Soulless Man, which will be on the band’s forthcoming blues EP, Catfish Stew.  Linda penned the lyrics to Beautiful Bird, which will be on the next album, First Leaves Fallin’.
Chris, James and Richard have to a great extent a free role in developing guitar, keyboards and drums.  Dave currently spends a lot of time working with Linda on her ideas for variation of melody and lyrics where improvement can be brought about.
The band has been joined by other musicians on some recordings.  Keith Martin played mandolin and melodeon on Down To The Town;  Harmonica Dave Hunt played on Catfish Stew, Lazy Summer Sunday and Night Train; Colin Wilson played 12-string acoustic guitar on John Wells and Outlaw.  Future collaborations are planned.
Album: Night Train (2017)

Faith & Harry  

After the success of Siblings Faith & Harrys Christmas cover 'Last Christmas' which was played across indie radio stations all over the world in 2017. The duo are releasing March 12 th 2018 at just 13 & 11, their first original single aptly called My BFFs and Me. Faith penned the song when she was just 12; it's a catchy pop song that the young songstress wrote using the talents of co-writing duo Pete Spicer & Tony Slaven from the UK to help create the song. Faith has been writing lyrics since she was 9 but this was the first one she really felt was ready for her and brother Harry's social media fans, which stands at more than 125,000 Rowanetts (the name their fans call themselves) on FaceBook.
The pop song really came together in the studio with the skills of their seasoned producer Phillip Cope. He carefully wound the instruments around Faiths vocals.
Brother Harry let Faith take the lead with this song, as it was her idea from inception and his love for all things keys kept him busy in the studio. Faith & Harry also write together and have developed a close songwriting relationship in recent months which fans will see on the Album, to be released later in the year.
The duo are multi-instrumentalists performing on four instruments each, violin, piano, guitar and recently Harry added drums to his music lessons while Faith is having fun with the ukulele. The British-Americans will be performing in Music festivals across the US and UK this summer, their surely rising stars with unlimited talent..
