“Country Music isn’t all Cowboy boots and Line Dancing and Acoustic music isn’t all loop pedals and rap covers.” Mike West proclaims. “We’re here to remind everyone that dark and meaningful music is here and acoustic songwriters deserve more than open mics and to play the same old cover songs.”
West founded Rogue Country UK on Facebook with fellow musician, Josh Beddis, to create a space for artists and fans to share and celebrate the styles of music so often overlooked by the mainstream. With a growing fan base across the UK and now internationally, Rogue Country believe it’s the right time to bring these genres to live audiences and debut it in Liverpool with more shows planned around the UK.
Join Rogue Country, on Saturday 7th December for a night of honest and raw songwriters baring their soul and brandishing acoustic guitars all at Outpost Liverpool on Renshaw Street. A stellar line up of UK musicians brings Edd Case, Josh Beddis and Mike West together for one unmissable night!
“Live, original music is battling against tribute bands, open mics and karaoke and Liverpool, unfortunately, is not exempt from these struggles. We’re offering tickets at £5 for those solo Rogues or if you want to come down with your friends, you can get 3 tickets for £10!”
Josh Beddis, the laid back country picker from West Wales takes inspiration from the traditional Folk music and Cowboy songs of the Appalachian Mountains to the Honky Tonks and dive bars and everything in between. Josh is paying tribute to the rich legacy of these genres while carving a new path, with his unique style of traditional Country Music and easy listening, heartfelt stories that leave audiences captivated.
Edd Case pulls no punches with his brutally honest and raw songs that drag you down and tear at your heart. A thrilling mix of metal, rock and acoustic, this Rock n Raw musician is to be seen live to be believed!
Mike West pays homage to his love of delta blues, folk and country while remaining true to his metal and rock roots. Not Country Enough. Not Blues Enough. Not Folk Enough. Too Heavy. These are words used positivily and negatively throughout Mike’s musical journey and he wears them with pride, literally putting them on a t-shirt!
With all 3 artists performing across the UK and supporting established acts like Chris Shiflett, Danny Vaughn and Abraham Partridge, they are bringing their own unique take on their beloved genres, driving forward with their own sound and can’t wait to bring Rogue Country to Liverpool.
