Support From This House We Built
Carrying Glowing Endorsements And Reviews From Dave Ling (Classic Rock) Immensely Promising Quartet Playing A Confident, Summery, Sometimes Funk-Fuelled Style That Will Leave You Grinning From Ear To Ear And Rob Evans (Powerplay Rock & Metal) The Best Independent Album Ive Heard This Year, This House We Built Are Already On Rock Solid Foundations On Which To Build A Successful Career In The Music Scene.
The Real Bricks And Mortar Of The Band Are A Heady Mix Of Bands From Englands Scarborough Strip (Think Sunset Strip But With Less Debauchery, More Chips And An Untapped Resource Of Talent Since Five Little Angels Flew Big In 88). Players Scott Wardell (Vocals Guitar), Andy Jackson (Guitar Vocals), Oz Ward (Drums Vocals), And Wayne Dowkes White (Bass) Finally Came Together Just Prior To The World Shutting Down In 2020. Rather Than Dwell On Not Being Able To Bring Their Collective Talents To The Stage, They Started The Socially Distanced Writing Sessions That Bought The Plot For The House They Were About To Build. Each Man Brought A Different Musical Path To The Band, And You Can Hear Them All As The Album Unfolds. Eclectic Influences Ranging From Classic Rock, Funk, Emo, Nu-Metal, And Melodic Rock Are Mixed Perfectly Across The Ten Songs, And Brick By Harmony-Laden Brick They Build A Unique Sound That Transcends All Of The Aforementioned Genres.
Bassist Dowkes White Struts Into The House Via Classic Rock Road. Citing Influences From Bad Company, Whitesnake, Dio, Ufo, And Deep Purple His Low-Slung Bass Swings And Sings In Equal Measure. Handed His First Bass At Fourteen (A 59 Fender Jazz), And Hes Been Perfecting That Bottom-End Swagger Ever Since.
Rhythm Section Partner Ward Drums His Way Into The House Having Wandered The Paths Of Rock, Punk, And Nu-Metal. Raised On Sabbath, Zeppelin, And Joplin It Would Be The Sight Of Phil Collins Drumming With The Aforementioned Zeppelin That Made Him Pick Up The Sticks Aged Eleven. His Progression Into 90S Punk Came From A Life-Changing Discovery On His Sisters Mix Tape (Remember Them!) When He Heard The Offspring For The First Time.
Guitarist Jackson Picks And Strums Into The House By Way Of Melodic Rock Boulevard Picking Out The American Big Guns Of Bon Jovi And Skid Row As Early Influences. Nowadays Hell Solo His Way Through Anything From Country To Rap. Originally A Drummer At School As It Got Him Out Of Maths, It Would Be Achance School Jam With A Guitarist Who Wanted To Swap Instruments That Saw Him Swap Two Sticks For Six Strings. A Quick Learn Of A Quo Lick And The Sticks Were A Distant Memory.
Vocalist Wardell Serenades His Way Into The House And Has Taken A Sharp Left Off Lyrics Lane. Creatively Driven By Musical Heroes Sting, Kings X, Little Angels, And Tyketto A Young Wardell Was Instructed To Buy A Bass From The Back Of Kerrang If He Wanted To Play In His Friends Band. Like All Great Frontmen Though, He Ignored The Advice, Bought A Marlin State-Of-The-Art Series From His Local Music Shop, And Started To Construct His Own Musical Journey.
So, There You Have It, The House Is A Veritable Musical Mansion, And When You Add In Stellar Songwriting That Is Equally At Home Penning Stadium Anthems As They Are Challenging Difficult Life Situations Such As Depression, Alcoholism, And Alzheimers You Start To Realize This House We Built Are Not Simply Here To Rent, They Are A Long-Term Musical Mortgage Investment.
