Hailing from Bristol UK, with a sound echoing the 1960' s British R'n'B bands, The Terraplanes have been a breath of fresh air since the release of their debut E.P Midnight Train in 2020. With the commercial success and critical acclaim of their first full album Stepping Stones in 2022 plus some blistering live festival performances have seen them gain a league of followers around the world. The chemistry between the two founding members is the driving force of the band. Nick Scrase's authentic guitar/vocal tones and Eduardo Allen's hi energy harmonica skills and stage performance make for an electric live show. The band are ably supported by Tom Turner (drums), Craig Shaw (guitar) and Pete Tyler (Bass).
As the band head into 2023, their calender is filling up quickly with appearances at some of England's best known blues clubs and Festivals, sharing the bill with the best talent the blues world has to offer. Starting with a return to Butlins, Skegness, they played at The Great British Rock & Blues Festival in January, the band enjoyed one of their greatest gigs with a packed festival crowd really feeding off the band's energy to make their slot one of the best atmosphere's across the whole weekend! Recent live radio sessions have also seen the band gain more exposure and fans of authentic blues, played with such confidence and style.
The debut album Stepping Stones hit #14 for the whole of 2022 for radio plays on the IBBA Blues Chart. Sitting comfortably in the top 20 artists of the year has now allowed the band to fulfill their original ambition...to play on the big stages in the biggest events in the world of Rhythm & Blues!
Formed in 2013 as a duo, Nick and Eduardo expanded the band to a 4 piece in 2014. Their reputation as a formidable live act steadily grew. 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.
