Derecho is an award-nominated four piece indie rock band with with, as The Classic Rock Society put it, “a star up front on vocals in Jo Ash”. We play original rock music that grabs you and sticks in your mind, and our songs are full of energy, melody and emotion.

We started off in 2010, founded by singer and songwriter Jo and guitarist Mike Wheatley. Since then we've released two studio albums and an EP, and performed at venues and festivals all around the UK.

Our music is a set of high impact genres, blended into an original and instantly recognisable rock sound that stands out for its quality and emotional appeal in today’s crowded music world.

Think the combined sounds of Pat Benatar, Evanescence, Blondie, Siouxsie Sioux and Kate Bush, and there you have it - a powerful blend of alluring melodies, mighty vocals, well crafted musicianship and magnetising stage presence! 

We'd love to hear from you if you like what you see and hear - feel free to get in touch.
