Kris Barras Band...

Since winning ‘Best New Band’ in the 2019 Planet Rock Radio awards, the Kris Barras Band have become one of the UK’s fastest rising acts.


With his blistering technique and soul-wrenching melodies, Kris was voted one of the ‘Top Blues Guitarists in the World’ by Music Radar, while the band scored ‘Best Album’ accolade in the European Blues Awards.


Guitarist Magazine hailed Barras as “reminiscent of shredders like Zakk Wylde”, and Classic Rock applauded the “pummelling riffs and from-the-gut vocals”.


A UK tour with Back Stone Cherry in 2021 culminated with a show at the Royal Albert Hall. They then supported The Darkness for two nights at London’s Shepherd Bush Empire. Their album ‘Death Valley Paradise’ crashed into the Official UK Album Charts at No.27 in March 2022 and they spent the month on their biggest UK headline tour to date, followed by a triumphant Download festival debut in summer.


The band have also thrilled audiences as the support act for Bon Jovi, Joanne Shaw Taylor, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Walter Trout.


Their high-energy, no-nonsense Rock and Blues, foot-stomping riffs and catchy tunes have made the band one of the most played artists on Planet Rock Radio. In addition, they’ve performed two live acoustic sessions on BBC Radio 2 to over 3 million listeners, which caused host Richard Madeley to exclaim, “that’s the reason I love doing this show!”.


The best live band in the UK right now” Bernard Doherty - Planet Rock
