Great to get Wayward Sons on the WinterStorm stage for 2018 after a false start for 2017!
As the biography says, it's time to reset the counters! Toby Jepson is most certainly back with WAYWARD SONS his new band and Ghosts Of Yet To Come, released in 2017 was his first new album in over 20 years and was a most positive return to top form matched only with some magnificent live performances across the UK.
After the incredible success of Little Angels, a number one album, millions of records sold, massive sell out shows and numerous hit singles, Toby remained busy in the intervening years with movie work, performing with Fastway, Gun and Dio’s Disciples and producing albums for numerous bands including Saxon, Fastway and the Virginmarys.
His heart, however, was always in writing and performing and so the concept of Wayward Sons was born with a new band built for playing live, a new direction with Toby’s songs centre stage and a new album. it all lead to a great debut released on Frontiers Records.
Wayward Sons, handpicked by Toby are Nic Wastell (bass, Chrome Molly), Phil Martini (drums, Spear Of Destiny, ex Quireboys, Joe Elliot’s Down and Outs) Sam Wood (guitar, a real new gunslinger from Treason Kings) and Dave Kemp (keys, ex Little Angels touring band and long time sideman to Toby).
GOYTC was written in a live band situation, a first for Toby, he explained further at the time
‘’I decided to get out of my comfort zone, new players, no ‘been there done that’ and it totally worked’ says Toby. 26 songs were written in a series of rehearsals at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and 14 were then taken into Vale Studios in Worcestershire and recorded in a live band situation with Toby co producing with Chris D’adda.
Passionate, honest music made by passionate honest musicians who have come together to create rock music that reflects their heroes from the ‘70s and ‘80’s – modernity through homage.
Wayward Sons. WinterStorm. A marriage made in heaven!
