"One of the biggest up and coming names you can imagine"



 Reviews for Brave Rival 

"a multidimensional experience: sweet, sour, tall, short, light and dark. It is a tumble into incredible-ness"

Raw Ramp Magazine

""a great mix of style and harmony...poetry in motion...absolutely superb. Was it a good gig? Yes, it was excellent"

Blues In Britain Magazine

"harmonising in perfect synchronicity...delivered to perfection"

Down The Front Media

"Janis Joplin / Tina Turner over some classic-rock fizz that wouldn’t have been out-of-place at Monterey circa 1967"

Raw Ramp Magazine

"a fresh take on West coast influenced roots rock"

Get Ready To Rock 




What happens when you take a drummer tighter than Mick Jagger's trousers, a bassist with more low-end than the Grand Canyon, a guitarist who shreds faster than Simon Cowell’s accountant and two singers whose voices seem to make the world that much sweeter? You get Brave Rival, the South East’s brand new rip-roaring blues-rock and soul machine.

Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Tedeschi Trucks, Brave Rival offer a style and sound that you’ve always known, and yet never heard before.

Hailing from Hampshire and Surrey, this modern blues-rock 'n' soul outfit hit the stages in 2019 and have certainly made one hell of an entrance. Their sound has been likened to Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Tedeschi Trucks and Bonnie Raitt and after a string of support slots opening for the Billy Walton Band and Stevie Nimmo, they packed out the Echo Hotel Music Club in January 2020 for their first headline show to rave reviews and subsequently produced a live album.
