"The sheer attack and joy that is in their music is completely invigorating and the quality of their playing is stunning. They rock like beasts and the Blues at the soul of their sound is strong and powerful"
Music News
"Just kicks in the doors and lets us feel the musicality oozing from every musician that is plying their trade on this incredible debut record"
Jace Media
"The spaciousness of the album is superb, this is a big sound, nothing allowed to dominate, each instrument and vocal performance is allowed to breath, resulting in an album that sounds like it’s the output from a multi-platinum selling act, not a band’s first studio release"
Rock Poser
"One of the biggest up and coming names you can imagine"
Blues on the Radio

About Us

Brave Rival are the South East’s brand-new rip-roaring rock and blues machine. Hailing from Portsmouth, the UK Blues Award Nominated band features the powerful and beautiful twin vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. On lead guitar, providing dramatic guitar solos and crunching rock riffs is Ed “The Shred” Clarke. And holding it all together is the rhythmic backbone, the self-proclaimed engine room of Billy Dedman (bass) and Donna Peters (drums).

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.

Brave Rival are a band on a meteoric rise, firing on all cylinders and are about to take the world by storm. Their unique combination of beautifully harmonic, soulful vocals, epic guitar solos, pounding drums and powerful bass serves up an infectious sound that is not to be missed.
