“I feel that we have finally managed to capture the various soundscapes and unusual instrumentation of
our sound on one album without losing the raw, live energy of WATB”

Wille Edwards (Lead Vocals, Guitars)

Wille & The Bandits manage to encompass musical diversity which makes their music so appealing. The band adopts the musical essence, nostalgia and discovery of the late 60’s and 70’s and mix Rock and Roll with a more modern approach, combining elements of world music, dance music and hip-hop creating something truly unique.

“An eclectic blend of our sounds and influences that sums up the musical diversity of the band”
Andrew Naumann (Beats Master)

Wille & The Bandits have toured with bands and musicians such as Deep Purple, Status Quo, Joe Bonamassa, the Jon Butler Trio and Warren Haynes. In 2014 the band was voted in the Top Ten bands to see at Glastonbury. They also played the Isle of Wight festival as well as at the London Olympics, picked to play by being voted one of UK’s best Live acts. Other festival appearances include Boardmasters and several festivals in Europe.

dynamic energy and have built an enviable live reputation.”

“We’re talking about the quality of Lynyrd Skynyrd or Bad Company here.
This is quite simply one of the albums of the year. It’s THAT good.”

“”Steal””” is a stunning album. The Bandits have taken blues-rock, dusted it off and freshened it up.”

– Buzz Magazine
