WDFD RECORDS SIGN RYAN WEBB

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”.

VERITY WHITE RELEASES ‘A LITTLE BIT OF TROUBLE’ AND ANNOUNCES SUPPORT DATE WITH 80’S ICON TOYAH!

A Little Bit Of Trouble’ has a gritty, angsty vibe which nods to Verity White’s grunge influences whilst also adding a modern twist with crunching riffs and a bouncing chorus which immediately has you singing along. Lyrically, the track is semi-autobiographical, but the subject of finding yourself in a little bit of trouble is something which we can all relate to and it is already receiving widespread airplay.

Released on WDFD Records and taken from Verity White’s second lockdown EP ‘Ungrounded’, this track is the perfect follow up to lead single ‘Strange Times’. You can buy or stream ‘A Little Bit of Trouble’ now from https://ditto.fm/a-little-bit-of-trouble

The video for ‘A Little Bit of Trouble’ will be simultaneously premiered on the WDFD Records YouTube Channel and on the Emerging Rock Bands Website at 11am on Saturday 13th March. Set those reminders!

In addition to the single release, it was announced on Wednesday that Verity White would be supporting the legendary 80’s icon Toyah at The Robin 2, Bilston this coming November. This is going to be an unforgettable night, so get your tickets before they are gone. https://www.eventim.co.uk/event/toyah-the-robin-2-13623186/

Verity said:

“I’m over the moon to be supporting Toyah – an absolute icon and someone who is constantly pushing boundaries. It’s inspiring to work with somebody who you’ve looked up to and who has always challenged ideals and forged their own path, just like I try to do!

I truly cannot wait – this is going to be one special evening!”

WDFD chooses Rockstar PR

WDFD Records have exciting plans for their future and we’re over the moon that they have chosen Rockstar PR to join them on their journey.

When Rockstar PR was launched, WDFD Records Managing Director, Keith Lamley was the first person we discussed our plans with; not as a sales pitch, but because we truly valued his opinion and we knew he shares our passion for supporting new bands.

To say we are over the moon with WDFD choosing us as a partner is a huge understatement and we are really looking forward to working with a company who share our own values of ‘Collaboration not competition’

WDFD Records have a kaleidoscope of plans that will be set in motion over the coming months and we’re ecstatic that we will be helping to deliver their vision.

Keep your eyes peeled on both our and WDFD’s socials for news as it evolves!

Background

WDFD Records was formed in May 2017 with a view to helping emerging bands on the road to stardom. The ethos behind WDFD is very much moulded around Keith’s own endeavours in the music industry, having been in a band himself in the 1980’s. His personal experiences with an A&R guy led him to believe that things could, and indeed should be done differently. 

From its humble beginnings, WDFD Records has nurtured and supported bands with their journey into the music industry, allowing them to move on to the next stage of their career with confidence. A great believer in collaboration, Keith Lamley has forged excellent working relationships with other industry leaders as well as sponsoring numerous festivals. To date, WDFD Records has sponsored Stonedeaf Festival, Wildfire Festival, Call of the Wild Festival, Rockwich, and Just Push Play, as well as hosting their own WDFD Festival.

WDFD Records also produced two free compilation CDs featuring the bands on the label, which were distributed at gigs and festivals all over the country. 

WDFD Roster

WDFD Records currently has 8 bands on their roster, representing the diversity of the rock spectrum. From the heavy crunching tones of Hell’s Addiction to the glam rock of Shyyne and everything in between, there is something for everyone.
