ChrisCooperBand - Indie Americana Live Act in Scunthorpe

ChrisCooperBand Short Info

ChrisCooperBand are a 5 piece Indie/Folk/Rock band originally from Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.

They began playing as a group in 2010 as members Darryl Ebbatson, Chris Cooper and Simon Barley releasing their first studio album ‘Harbour’ the same year and received good responses on the accompanying tour from several radio and media outlets including BBC Radio Humberside, BBC Introducing, Kawshaw Radio and St. Heliers Music Crowns London.

Having covered most of the UK in 2010/11 the band returned to their hometown to begin work on their follow-up album ‘Kings of Contradiction’ which would see them add new members to the lineup.

The addition of new blood and the evolution of the band sound has brought with it interesting developments as the guys continue to play melodic folk rock but mixing in elements of the harder Indie-influenced driving chords and adding a pinch of Americana to the pot. A wide array of influences give opportunities to explore musical directions and not be limited to genre specifics, making them sound like no other British band around now.

Receiving praise for their efforts wherever they play, the band have appeared far and wide including Sheffield City Hall, Tramlines Festival , Sheftival, Doncaster Live, C-Fab Festival, Humber Street Festival, Trinity Festival, The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe and Oscars Bar, Hull.

With their new album ‘Kings of Contradiction’ now available, the band have just completed a tour including headlining the Country Stage at the eclectic C-Fab Festival in May 2014, several dates in France as well as other dates in Driffield, Peterborough and Grimsthorpe Festival In Bourne, Lincolnshire.

Chris Cooper – Vocals, Guitar
Darryl Ebbatson – Guitars, Vocals
Sid Barley – Piano, Keyboards, Banjo
Phillip Vernon – Drums, Percussion
Jack Spence – Bass
