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. Stroud has garnered attention from the music media with radio support from BBC Introducing /BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Scotland, Radio X, NME and Amazing Radio. Rupert’s last EP “Talk To You” hit no. 11 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. Amassing fans along the way playing to over 180,000 people in 2015/2016 Rupert’s broad musical appeal gained prominent support slots including amongst others opening the show for Texas, James Blunt, Little Comets, Jake Isaac, JP Cooper and Jamie Lawson to name a few.
