Devils CreekDevils Creek - High octane rocking blues – a solid testament to the enduring power and influence of Blues Rock – especially the variety in which a wailing Fender Stratocaster comes front and centre. Inspired by the classic guitar-driven blues rock of the late 60?s and 70?s, Cornish power trio Devils Creek are keeping alive the time honored traditions first forged by greats such as Rory Gallagher, Ten Years After and Johnny Winter. Formed in 2006, and fronted by maverick guitarist/vocalist Guy Rosewall, the band features a crack rhythm section in bassist Tim Chapple and drummer Alan Ibbotson. The band have released three albums on their own label (Top of the Hill) The 2008 debut album "Bullfrog Blues" combined a classic approach with an attack favoured by heavy rock, particularly evident in the ultra heavy bass sound not normally heard in the genre. Featuring a hard driving electric version of Rory Gallagher’s "Seven Days" which would surely make the late great Irish guitarist proud, the entire offering is a solid testament to the enduring power and influence of blues inflected rock. 2010 saw the release of the bands second album "Working the Chains". The album received a good deal of airplay, including Rick Wakeman’s Planet Rock show. The band’s latest album was released in January 2012. The band has gigged solidly since 2006, and this years gigs include The Welsh International Bike Show, The Bideford Blues Festival, etc.
