The Pad Presents in association with X-Ray Touring…
WAYWARD SONS + Electric Black
7.30pm, Wednesday 8th June, Bedford Esquires
Reset the counters! Toby Jepson is back with WAYWARD SONS and returns to Bedford Esquires on following a packed out show in 2018.
After the incredible success of Little Angels, a number one album, millions of records sold, massive sell out shows and numerous hit singles, Toby has been busy these past years in movie work, performing with Fastway, Gun and Dio’s Disciples and producing albums for numerous bands (Saxon, Fastway, Virginmarys).
His heart however, is always in writing and performing and so the concept of WAYWARD SONS was born – a new band, built for playing live, a new direction with Toby’s songs centre stage and a new album, signed to Frontiers Music SRL, with all the hallmarks of a great debut.
Wayward Sons, handpicked by Toby are Nic Wastell (bass, Chrome Molly) Phil Martini (drums, Spear Of Destiny, ex Quireboys, Joe Elliot’s Down and Outs) Sam Wood (guitar, a real new gunslinger from Treason Kings) and Dave Kemp (keys, ex Little Angels touring band and long time sideman to Toby). GOYTC was written in a live band situation, a first for Toby
‘’I decided to get out of my comfort zone, new players, no ‘been there done that’ and it totally worked’ says Toby. 26 songs were written in a series of rehearsals at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and 14 were then taken into Vale Studios in Worcestershire and recorded in a live band situation with Toby co producing with Chris D’adda.
Passionate, honest music made by passionate honest musicians who have come together to create rock music that reflects their heroes from the ‘70s and ‘80’s – modernity through homage…..Wayward Sons
