Broken Witt Rebels have just made guitar bands exciting again.
Georgia Pine is the new 5-track EP from the British rock band that everyone is talking about – "Broken Witt Rebels". After delivering outstanding performances in 2015, the energetic, young 4-piece, who hail from Birmingham, are now looking to win over new fans with their infectious blend of rock and soulful blues.
Georgia Pine is authentic, rootsy, and real, and has serious hit potential. Similarly to the new generation of contemporary and distinctive soulful roots rock bands like Alabama Shakes and Black Keys, Broken Witt Rebels strike a chord.
The EP was engineered and produced by Tom Gittins, who has worked on recent recordings by Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin). Gittins cites the Rebels’ lead singer, Danny Core, as an amazing vocal talent in the tradition of Steve Marriot and Joe Cocker – a distinctive heart-wrenching vocal style that’s steeped deep within the inner core of blues and soul.
With crunching riffs jabbed by soulful vocals these new songs have energy and force behind them that are hallmarks of something big.
Following its appearance at the top of the Hype Machine chart it was featured as Classic Rock Track of the Week.
