WE ARE ROAD STARS
“Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan.” • ROLLING STONE
“If you’ve ever been a fan of blues-influenced rock from the likes of Kings Of Leon, Jack White, The Black Crowes or Lynyrd Skynyrd, then you’ll appreciate the impressively talented Aaron Keylock. With guitar-playing skills to die for, the looks of a young Jimmy Page and a growing reputation as a dynamic musician and gifted songwriter that’s sweeping like wildfire through the live circuit, it’s all the more remarkable when you discover he’s aged just 16. This feels like someone who’ll be racking up record sales and selling out gigs for several decades to come.” • Record Of The Day Nov 28th 2014
“With a satchel full of influences that belie their tender years, Federal Charm are unabashed blues-rockers who take inspiration from that scene’s 70s genesis, citing Zeppelin and Free in particular. What matters is what they do with these influences, and Federal Charm invest swaggering riffs, sleazy slide flourishes and cinder-raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning”. – Classic Rock Magazine
“You need big balls to do this stuff justice, and there are four XXL pairs here.” – Blues and Soul Magazine
“Federal Charm are easily one of the hottest bands to be surfacing on the Manchester scene.” – 4Q Magazine
“There’s nothing dusty or desiccated about Federal Charm’s spin on the Blues, which ram-raids the Delta masters, applies 70’s style chest hair and frogmarches the result into the post-millennium.” – Classic Rock presents… The Blues
“probably the hottest nu-blues outfit to have come out of the UK in the last twenty years” BBC Radio 2
