Founded in 2016, Eastbourne founded four-piece‘Grace and Danger are making a name for themselves with shows all over the UK. As well as playing legendary venues such as The Forum (Tunbridge Wells) and The Clutha (Glasgow), the band have a particularly devoted following on the South Coast.

From a young age, the band has always had music, and a love of playing live, in their blood:
“The thought of playing live to people gives me a reason to get up in the morning!” says guitarist and frontman Rory Purdey. “I’m really inspired by the playing of the old blues greats; Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as more modern players like Joe Bonamassa…”. Audiences are drawn in by Rory’s incredible songwriting, ear-catching vocals and virtuosic guitar playing.

Before forming Grace and Danger, Rory’s brother, Aiden Purdey, was already highly in demand as a live and session drummer. Soaked in jazz, rock and funk, Aiden takes his drumming seriously: “There’s nothing like real, pure, live music to drive an audience… a live band needs to really hit you in the chest.” Aiden’s spectacular drumming is as integral to the ‘Grace and Danger’ sound as, John Bonham’s to Zeppelin, or Keith Moon’s was to the who. “This band is really where my heart lies”.

But Rory and Aiden have one other huge influence on their musical heritage. “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….”

The keys playing of Tom Stevens, 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.

Completed by the modern indie-rock inspired bass lines of Gary Stafford, Grace and Danger are quickly becoming known as the must-see new-blood act on the UK blues-rock scene.
