Sam Richardson and The Renegades are a soaring 4 piece roots-rock band hailing from the rugged north coast of Cornwall. Sam’s songs are reminiscent of the days when imagery and stories played a key role in the songwriting process and the band’s evocative, euphoric live performance has left its mark on audiences across the UK.
2017 was filled with festivals, radio airplay, headline shows and support slots (including a 4 night run with Newton Faulkner) and saw the release of Sam’s debut 6 track EP ‘Atlantic Highway’. Previous years have seen BBC Radio 1 airplay (and interviews), theatre performances for Amnesty International, support slots for artists such as Gary Lightbody (lead singer of Snow Patrol) and private acoustic performances to audiences including Sir Patrick Stewart, Jeremy Irons, Snow Patrol and The Kaiser Chiefs.
Mixing the driven, cinematic stylings of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Jackson Browne results in emotive and exciting songs that make you want to turn up your radio and drive out into an unending summer night. Find yourself captivated by tales of fugitives, redemption, desperation and watch a stage of some of the best musicians the South-West has to offer, empty the tank.
