Powerful singer Val Cowell and ace guitarist Richard Hayes lead the band through an intoxicating cocktail of blues/rock, with a super tight rhythm section, including Pete Stroud on bass.
The band has received much critical acclaim for both their original songs and their strong covers of Tom Petty to Bonnie Raitt to Fleetwood Mac etc.
They have appeared on all types of stage and radio and released six CDs. Their latest CD is ‘CAROUSEL’ from which four tracks were recorded for Paul Jones’ Radio 2 Show.
Val has been described as having “a tidal wave of a voice that can take on the mantle of our greatest singers”, while the band’s overall performances receive reports such as.. “Bad Influence always leave their audiences handsomely entertained”.
Bad Influence have definitely paid their ‘dues’ and are now considered by many to be one of the top acts in their field, delivering their sound of powerful vocals alongside classic guitar driven rock solid blues.
Val is without doubt one of the finest female singers on the European blues scene as well as being a great rhythm guitarist.
A stunning band!
