What a crazy year 2020 has been!
February seems so far away now when we recorded the E.P but the ride we've been on since has been amazing. We have made an unbelievable amount of new friends and fans and the response to the E.P has blown us away.
Here are some of the highlights...
Producing our own music videos has been particularly enjoyable part of the last few months. Nick set about learning the skills needed to pull off professional looking videos. After the Voodoo Blues video in the woods which showed progression from the photo montage video for Midnight Train, the challenge then was to move from the amateur to the professional. The Rambler was to be the one where it all came together. Shot in the live room of Factory Studios, Bristol we used the one shot idea with the band moving positions throughout. It was such a great experience! We are so happy with the result.
We will be filming the video for our next single later this month at a great music venue in Bristol.
Here's a short film we produced about the making of The Rambler video
Here's an extract from the full page piece we had with Shaun Freke from
Blues In Britain Magazine
August 2020 edition
"It's always good to hear about a new band making headway in a competitive market, especially so at a time when live music faces an uncertain future. Not that The Terraplanes are a new band. Having now served their time playing their local pub and club circuit to critical acclaim, the band deservedly found themselves in demand further afield.
Their debut single Midnight Train released in May (taken from the E.P of the same name) reached number 5 in the independent blues charts. Having now had the chance to play the full E.P, I have no doubt that this too will find critical acclaim.
The band has a raw, authentic tone carefully built into the bands DNA.
A heady mix of driven and laid back blues..what's not to like?"
BRISTOL MADE MUSIC is a run by a great guy called Simon Campbell. A musician in his own right, Simon also hosts a podcast called The Simon Campbell incident where he talks to all kinds of homegrown band and musicians. Just before the release of the debut single, Nick Scrase sat down via zoom and talked about the bands journey, their hopes and aspirations for the release and obviously, life during lockdown. A catch up with Simon is being planned now to talk about everything since the release.
