Hailing from Bristol UK, with a sound echoing the 1960' s British R'n'B bands, The Terraplanes have been a breath of fresh air since the release of their debut E.P Midnight Train in 2020. With the commercial success and critical acclaim of their first full album Stepping Stones in 2022 plus some blistering live festival performances have seen them gain a league of followers around the world. The chemistry between the two founding members is the driving force of the band. Nick Scrase's authentic guitar/vocal tones Eduardo Allen's hi energy harmonica skills and stage performance make for an electric live show. The band are ably supported by Tom Turner (drums), Craig Shaw (guitar) and Pete Tyler (Bass).
