Grace and Danger
Grace & Danger
UK touring blues rock powerhouse band.
Eastbourne based Blues/Rock four-piece band Grace and Danger are quickly becoming known as the must see new-blood act on the UK music scene. As well as playing music festivals and legendary venues such as The Forum (Tunbridge Wells) and The Clutha (Glasgow), the band have a particularly devoted following on the South Coast.
Rory Purdey - Guitar/Vocals
Aiden Purdey - Drums/Percussion
Tom Stevens - Keys
Tomas Siroky - Bass
The frontman Rory Purdey (vocals, lead guitar) brings an eruptive amalgam of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa. Combined with his signature original sound and tone, he makes his guitar purr whenever he starts to play. Audiences are drawn in by Rory’s incredible song-writing, ear-catching vocals and virtuosic guitar playing. “The thought of playing live to people gives me a reason to get up in the morning!”
With the experienced and highly esteemed Aiden Purdey on drums the band gets space to deliver a dynamic and creative thrill show. “There’s nothing like real, pure, live music to drive an audience… a live band needs to really hit you in the chest.” His spectacular drumming is as integral to the ‘Grace and Danger’ sound as John Bonham’s to Zeppelin, or Keith Moon’s to The Who’s. Aiden is also highly in demand as a live and studio session drummer who is well versed in all genres. “This band is really where my heart lies”.
Thomas Stevens on keyboard. He is the sonic glue that gives the band a sound all their own. Evoking the playing of such greats as Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Billy Joel. You can really hear the versatility of Tom’s playing when listening to the tracks on the upcoming album. Going from beautifully stunning ballads like ‘Found My Way’ to really high energy prog-rock style Hammond on the end of ‘Walk Away’. He always knows exactly what to bring to each new song.
Classically trained Tomas Siroky on bass guitar toured Europe with different orchestras playing a mix of classical music and rock music. He accompanied legendary singers such as Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Paul Rodgers (Free/Bad Company), Lou Gramm (Foreigner), Dan McCafferty (Nazareth), Bonnie Tyler, Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band), Steve Augeri (Journey), Marc Storace (Krokus), and Eric Bazilian (The Hooters). He also went through many bands and played music from folk, rock, pop, functions to blues, swing and jazz. He is using all his musical experiences from past ventures to bring that classic rock sound into the very heart of Grace and Danger.
They also have a huge influence on their musical heritage. Rory and Aiden’s Uncle John Martyn (OBE) give them an extra special bond to not only the name of the band but the music they produce within. “My Uncle, John Martyn, had a special connection to music… there was a directness and integrity to his playing and writing… we hope we carry on some of that legacy….”.
