Oxford-based singer-songwriter Gaz Coombes is starting to make quite a name for himself as a solo musician, despite all of you probably remembering him from alternative rockers Supergrass. Having been in the music scene since he was 16, Coombes is a proper musician, and knows how to make a proper record.
Post-Supergrass, Coombes decided to take his musical abilities to a solo level, and release his debut album Here Come the Bombs early on in 2012 to critical acclaim. He toured the album through 2012 and 2013, before heading back to the studio to work on his second. That LP, 'Matador', dropped in 2015.
Coombes's latest LP, 'World's Strongest Man' arrived in May 2018. Alongside the new album, the Supergrass frontman headed out on a solo UK tour in June, and has a busy summer of festival appearances ahead, including stops at Truck, Deer Shed, Standon Calling, Victorious, Swn, Festival No.6 and Ritual Union followed by another UK tour in October.

Still regarded in some quarters as ‘the guy from Supergrass’, Gaz Coombes’ latest collection, ‘World’s Strongest Man’, is his third solo outing since the Oxford trio split eight years ago. His previous effort, ‘Matador’, received high praise, with its concoction of Radiohead’s originality and occasional U2-esque anthemic highs netting a deserved Mercury Prize nomination.
