Talking about the tour Barras says; “2018 has been an amazing year for me and it looks like 2019 is going to be even better. I’m really excited to be heading out on a UK tour in February/March. We are taking a step up in venue size and I will be getting to perform in some great places that I’ve always wanted to play in, like The Garage in London.” The Devon born Barras, has had a whirlwind year. The band have become one of the hottest rising stars over the past 6 months. They released the mesmerising ‘The Divine And Dirty’ in March, supported Beth Hart in April and Joanne Shaw Taylor in October on their UK tours. Barras became the front-man and guitarist for Supersonic Blues Machine with ZZ Top’s Billy F. Gibbons and toured Europe through July including playing the prestigious Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London. They played a rapturous set at Ramblin’ Man Fair in the summer to the biggest crowd of the second stage all weekend and toured the country to sold out headline shows in March and September with an upcoming 3 date tour with GUN still to come. They went from being a completely unplayed artist to being the most played artist for 5 weeks at Planet Rock Radio for their A-List single ‘Lovers or Losers’, they performed an acoustic session on BBC Radio 2 to an audience of 2 million people and have picked up praise from across the UK press throughout the year. Kris Barras isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. As a former Mixed Martial Artist, the Devon born singer and guitarist has fought in front of 8000 people, dealt with bankruptcy, suffered deep and personal loss, unleashed blues fury on stages across Europe and been voted one of the best 13 Blues Guitarists in the World Right Nowby Music Radar. He picked up the guitar and took up martial arts as a child. After playing in bands throughout his teens he became disillusioned. By his early 20s, offers for fights were coming thick and fast. Music took a backseat as he travelled the world to compete in tournaments, winning 14 out of 17 fights and even settling to live in Las Vegas and Thailand. He retired from the cage in 2014, feeling like he had achieved everything that he was going to achieve. It had consumed his life for so long, making so many sacrifices that he felt that it was time to move on. Music, his real love was too strong for him to ignore. Armed with this kind of passion and dedication, The Kris Barras Band are coming out swinging. Stand back – rock has a new hero.
