Radford mill r'n'b festival, aug 2021
Hailing from Bristol UK, The Terraplanes Blues Band have established themselves as a force on the UK blues scene. Following their first show in London (Gaz Mayall's Rockin' Blues Club, Soho) and appearance at The Radford Mill Festival Of Rhythm & Blues alongside Kyla Brox, the band headed to Foel studio, Wales this summer to record their first full album. 12 original tracks full of swagger and style, reminiscent of the British R'n'B boom of the 1960's. This band have a sound that's unmatched in the current era of blues music..a sound that has seen their popularity grow massively in the last 18 months.
2021 began with the release of their fifth single Catfish, the final single to come from the critically acclaimed debut E.P Midnight Train which was the tenth most played album in 2020 on the UK Independent Blues Broadcasters Association (IBBA) chart.
All five singles have been featured on BBC upload shows.
Formed in 2013 as a duo, Nick and Eduardo expanded the band to a 4 piece in 2014. The pair shared a love of authentic delta blues and rockin' British R'n'B. The chemistry between the two founding members is the driving force of the band and their reputation as a formidable live act continues to grow. Under the wing of MAS records, a scheme with patrons like Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, the band gained mentorship and guidance in helping them achieve their goals. The Terraplanes have been on the rise ever since.
Full page interviews in prestigious blues publications as "Blues In Britain" and "Blues Matters" magazines have now cemented the bands position at the forefront of the UK blues scene.
With regular live shows happening again, this foursome are hoping to tour the album around the country and hit the blues festival circuit in 2022.
"The Terraplanes have a raw, authentic tone carefully built into their DNA.
A heady mix of driven & laid back blues..what's not to like?"
