Kris Barras is one of the U.K's most exciting blues-rock guitarists. His blend of soul-wrenching melodies with blistering technique has thrilled audiences worldwide for the past 13 years. The band, consisting of Barras himself, Josiah J Manning, Elliott Blackler and Will Beavis were named one of the 'must-see' blues bands of 2017.
Interestingly, Kris has always had an unusual side-job alongside his music career. Although recently retired, Kris had a successful 10 year professional mixed martial arts career.
Barras released his debut self titled EP in 2015, and started to gain attention in the blues world. But, it wasn't until the band's first full length album, 'Lucky 13', in 2016, that they really became successful; the album hit number 2 in both iTunes and Amazon Blues charts!
Barras' latest album, 'The Divine and The Dirty', was released in March 2018. To accompany the release, the band played a huge UK tour throughout spring, and have since announced a brace of summer shows too.
