Rupert Stroud Short Info

Hailing from the wilds of The Yorkshire moors, singer/songwriter Rupert Stroud’s powerful, hounding acoustic/Indie rock and beat driven sound has been likened to Richard Ashcroft, with a swirl of Nick Cave, a splash of Jim Morrison and a sprinkle of Elbow. His sound oozes his trademark Northern passion with heartfelt melodies and sweeping chorus’s.

iTunes charting and published recording artist Rupert Stroud and his band have National BBC Radio, ITV and Channel 4 airplay plaudits. Amassing fans along the way, Rupert and his band have opened the show for some of the UK’s biggest world renowned acts including James Blunt, Texas and The Feeling to name a few.

Rupert's powerful beat driven and melodic sound has garnered attention from the music media and radio support from BBC Introducing / BBC 6Music (Tom Robinson) BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O'Leary, Alex Lester, Bob Harris) BBC Radio Scotland, Radio X and Amazing Radio. Rupert's last EP "Talk To You" reached No. 11 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts where he was positioned in-between Ben Howard and Ed Sheeran.
