The Strays, Boxcar Mavericks
The Strays are pushing rock n roll to its limit, fusing a multitude of genres to create a unique vintage sound with a gritty, modern edge. Singed to Western Star Records and described as No Doubt meets Imelda May, front woman Stella Sonic leads this slick, nomadic 4 piece as they blaze their way across the country.
Their debut album ‘Drop Out Zone’ has been touted as ‘The most exciting album of the year’ by BBC Radio’s Rock n Roll Heaven.
The Boxcar Mavericks are a Gloucester based band, formed in 2015. They released their debut EP album “Ain’t Complainin’” in 2018 and their debut single “Drinkin’ with the Devil” shortly afterwards.
Formed and fronted by singer/songwriter Duane “Maverick” Suter, he quickly recruited an experienced and extremely talented set of fellow musicians: His friend and local Bluesman D’S#arp; long term friend Ade Paveling; fellow Welsh performer Caz Phillips and extremely talented percussionist Lynsey Whiteside. All together set out to create a band that plays a no-nonsense eclectic blend of acoustic and electric Americana, Blues Rock and Folk Rock styles.
They spent the next couple of years working hard to create and establish their well-rounded style of music, culminating in a style that is quintessentially The Boxcar Mavericks.
In mid-2018 they broke into the local music scene, performing their album tracks and single at events and festivals and have been featured on radio stations such as “Chat and Spin Radio” and “RadioAirplay”.
