These featured artists have been long overdue a slot here on the Smile Radio Featured Artists of 2019! Coming out of Leeds, I've personally had the chance to catch them live on a couple of occasions now, on our first meet I even got to hear them play "stripped back" versions of their catalog and it instantly made them one of my favorite bands to listen to when in need of an nice, easy going chilled out vibe. This Indie-Folk Rock band is RINGO AND THE WOLF!
A true family band made up of father, son, cousin, nephew and old friend, this band takes their influences from heavy hitters such as Ryan Adams, Band of Horses, The Black Crowes, Verve, Bruce Springsteen, The War on Drugs and as the lads say "Anything remotely 80's rock/pop!"
The band has just released their debut single "What is taking over" a great little indie-rock track that introduces the band to the world, the song answers its question with it's performers, who clearly will be taking over the indie-folk-country rock scene in time to come!
So who is the band?
Danny O'Grady - vocals, rhythm guitars, drums
Danny Newsome - bass, guitars
Peter O’Grady - pianos, organs, synths
Dean O’Grady - lead guitars
This awesome foursome keep very active with gigs in the Leeds music scene, having played at venues across West Yorkshire the band is quickly getting a noticeable fanbase!
