Edgy blues/rock from this Herefordshire-based band influenced by Hendrix and Led Zep.
Mart from Distorted Waves
Derailed have developed their own distinctive, innovative, edgy blues/rock sound, and have gone from strength to strength since changing their name from Distorted Waves.
Hendrix-inspired lead guitarist Simon Bedford, performs amazing solos, with a great talent for improvisation, which means if you see the band live you will never hear the same solo twice.
Simon is also a talented drummer and several people have been heard to say: "Is there anything he can't play?".
Kirk Hammond on vocals has a very distinctive voice, and has been likened to Jim Morrison and Eddie Vedder.
Simon from Distorted Waves
Bassist Mart Price joined the band a few months ago, and has brought immense enthusiasm, great ability and a new edge to the band.
He also performs outstanding solos and played drums for many years.
Deb Bedford, on drums, constantly brings new ideas to the band, you would never believe she has been playing for less than a year.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session Introducing... every week from 7pm, on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
