Praised by critics and rock legends for being one of the most dynamic bands around the globe, Wille and the Bandits conjure up similarities with Led Zeppelin as they move from riff-tastic rock and roll to more acoustic sensibilities that only few bands manage. The use of string arrangements, oscillating delays and soaring lap steel guitar solos give the band an emotive Pink Floyd edge mixed with the groove and vocal phrasing of John Butler Trio, which leaves audiences in pieces.
From humble roots in Cornwall, the band wanted to stay based where they feel inspired by the rolling hills and blues seas rather than chase the industry to the city. Their approach has paid off with the industry now chasing them. They have extended their touring reach right across Europe and as far afield as Australia and the USA to provide the sense of escapism and anti-establishment, rebellious spirit that Cornwall has been known for centuries.
The band were listed in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and were personally invited to perform on the German TV show Rockpalast; a musical institution of global import. The great musicianship with infectious songs has inspired praise from legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis Rossi.
