"They have a star up front on vocals in Jo Ash"

"Part Debbie Harry part Kate Bush with possibly a touch of Toyah and Lene Lovich for good measure.

I have seen them live twice at local music festivals and they have always been a highlight. Full of energy and great numbers, a band to keep an eye on both in the studio and live."

Andrew Lock, The Classic Rock Society.

Here's our EP '15 Degrees From Reality'

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

Think the combined sounds of Evanescence, Siouxsie Sioux and Kate Bush, and there you have it - come and see us at one of our shows and check us out for yourself!

We started off in 2010 and since then we've released two studio albums and an EP, and performed at venues and festivals all around the UK.

We'd love to hear from you - feel free to get in touch.
