There now seems to be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel of doom the music world has been stuck in for so long. And to make that glimmer sparkle a little bit brighter, we are thrilled to share with you that Ryan Webb has joined the WDFD Records family.
Ryan Webb oozes multi-instrumental talent along with powerful vocals and has been fine tuning his sound since releasing his first EP ‘Journey’ in 2015. ‘Journey’ had a more classic rock feel to it which Ryan Webb followed with the slightly heavier ‘Stop The World’ in 2018. Continuing to explore musical directions, Ryan Webb found the path he wanted to follow and released the single ‘Don’t’ in 2020 which achieved the heavy, riff ladened sounds that he feels are a true reflection of him as an artist.
In addition to joining WDFD Records on a label deal, Ryan Webb has also teamed up with WDFD Records’ new management service.
WDFD’s Keith Lamley said: “Ryan is a hidden gem. A hugely talented multi-instrumentalist and a thoroughly nice man. We cannot wait to help him on his journey and focus his incredible drive and enthusiasm. He has an excellent band around him for live work and you can be sure you will have the opportunity to catch him live in the coming months”.
Ryan said: “I am absolutely delighted to announce that I will be joining WDFD Records. I have been following WDFD for a while, and am so impressed at the way they’ve developed a great family among the bands they look after, which shows it’s truly a label that cares for its artists. I’m also going to be looked after by their management team, and am really looking forward to working with them”.
We’re always looking at fun ways for people to support our artists, especially as we navigate this strange gig-less world and finances are tight for many. We’re all having to keep in touch with friends and family using video messaging, and now you can do so with a bespoke background to support the release of Verity White’s ‘After the Storm’ EP. Simply download the file (if you use image mirroring make sure you download the mirrored version) and add it to your Zoom virtual background in the settings. Don’t forget to share your screen grabs!
Verity White has announced a new show that you definitely don’t want to miss! Sharing the stage with naughty rockers The Big Dirty and Scottish hard hitters She Burns Red, there promises to not be a dull moment at The Charles Bradlaugh in Northampton on 16th May.
Super excited about the show, Verity said “I can’t wait to share the stage with my filthy friends The Big Dirty again! We have a lot of surprises in store and are already talking though many ideas for madness (the event not the band!) … this is gonna be one not to miss!”
You can get your tickets for the gig here…make sure you get down early to make the most of a night of music, merriment, and mayhem that will get you rocking on a whole new level.
Offering something a little different to the new rock scene, Verity White and her band are a breath of fresh air in both style, sound and approach who offer an alternative to ‘alternative rock’.
Taking influence from 90s stalwarts such as Skunk Anansie, Garbage, Sleater Kinney, Pearl Jam, and Tori Amos, Verity White and her band meld driving riffs, powerfully emotional lyrics, and passionate vocal lines to create brutal, yet beautiful and honest rock music.
The Facebook group Emerging New Rock Bands are searching for an up and coming rock band to join the lineup for Dementia Aware Festival in Reading on 4th July 2020. In addition to the festival slot, the winner will also receive a bespoke PR package from ourselves (should the winner already have PR representation, this will transfer to the runner up).
