 Hailing from Bristol UK, The Terraplanes Blues Band have established themselves as a force on the UK blues scene with their brand of authentic, hard hitting R’n’B. In March 2022 they released their debut album “Stepping Stones”. Twelve original tracks full of swagger and style, reminiscent of the British R'n'B boom of the 1960's. Recorded at Foel Studio, Wales and Pirate Studios Bristol, The Terraplanes debut album follows on from their critically acclaimed E.P Midnight Train (released May 2020).

The new single is the title track of the album, Stepping Stones is a hard hitting guitar groove with a catchy riff from Nick Scrase and a spoonful of searing harp from Eduardo Allen. Great lyrics too! A song about not allowing yourself to be used for other people's gain. Being strong in the face of adversity and pushing forward in your life if forces are pulling you the other way. The single also comes with an awesome video full of behind the scenes footage shot by the band during the recording sessions of the album. The video was again produced by Nick Scrase. The Terraplanes have now self produced eight music videos for their singles.

The Terraplanes album was chosen as Pick Of The Month by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association and hit #4 in the IBBA chart April 2022. The band have just been interviewed by Blues In Britain Magazine for the June edition. The Terraplanes will also be sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the world of Blues when they play the HRH Blues Festival which will be held at The O2 Academy, Sheffield. April 2023. A return to the Great British Rock & Blues Festival, Skegness (Jan 2023) has also been confirmed.

Formed in 2013 as a duo, Nick and Eduardo expanded the band to a 4 piece in 2014. 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. In 2020, 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.
