RiD

Posted on the 12 July 2017 by Mike Lindley @fruitbatwalton

No automatic alt text available.RiD are a Coventry based band with links to Birmingham and Wales. In 2007, Dave
Cooke (rhythm guitar and songwriter) and Ricky Hogan (vocals) formed the band as a response to frustration over the media’s obsession with the current dire X Factor pop culture. 

In 2012, after various line-up changes, RiD were joined by Tony Cox (drums) and Kathryn Marsh (vocals). 2014 saw the departure of their guitarist and bass player, but in 2015 they were joined by James D. Nelson (lead guitar) and Jason Riggs (bass), which completed their current line-up.

RiD have recently completed their first album titled No Way Back, which was released earlier this month and it highlights the excellence of Kathryn's vocal stylings as well as the obvious quality of the band's songwriting and musicianship

These first three singles What You Are, Rock n Roll and now Without You are available from all major online platforms. 

Gigs coming up include a free entry album launch in Coventry on 14th July and Warton Music festival on 22nd July 2017.

Make sure you tune in to Ralph's Indie Show on Radio KC next Sunday to hear Without You
