Formed in 2013, Broken Chords comprises Joe (lead vox/lead guitar), Aiden (bass/vox) and Luke (drums/vox).
Their music is characterised by melodic riffs, dramatic vocals, and relentless exuberance: this has taken Broken Chords from their local music scene to headline gigs across the UK and a year of national touring, including academy supports for Bernie Torme, Kyshera, Temperance Movement and Australian rockers Electric Mary (O2 Academy). This was followed by headline appearances at Hard Rock Hell Helloween and Hard Rock Hell Ibiza, two shows at The Great Escape, Camden Rocks Festival, and the jewel in the crown, a full electric slot at Download Festival 2015, courtesy of Live Nation.
Broken Chords saw their initial studio work, notably their debut single, ‘Get Some’, from 2014, welcomed across media and airwaves, including regular airplay on BBC Radio, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio, Classic Rock and many internet rock sites.
They released their ‘Rock & Stone EP’ in April last year, signalling a new progression for the band: a more mature sound with a harder edge. Title track ‘Rock & Stone’ was featured as one of Classic Rock Magazine’s online videos of the week, which attracted the attention of Universal UK, Sony Music, and a host of international A&Rs; just in time for the release of their single, ‘The First & Only Kind’/’I Do Believe’ (October 2015).
The release of self-titled EP, ‘Broken Chords’ on 31 January promises a busy year for the band. Showcasing a natural progression in sound and songwriting, the EP brings everything you’d expect from a great rock band – soaring guitar riffs, and even higher vocals, and thumping drums providing the heartbeat for the album.
