Biography

The band consists of
Neil Harper on Guitar and Vocals,
Gareth Jenkins on Bass Guitar
Adam Lewis on Drums.

COLT 45 formed in 2009, Workington, Cumbria from the ashes of various other local bands that both Neil & Gareth had previously played in. Plenty of early shows around Cumbria’s modest, but dedicated live music scene helped develop a passionate local following, attracting Carlisle-based drummer Adam to join guitarist Neil and bassist Gareth. Upon joining in November 2010, the three-piece have gone from strength to strength with a pretty relentless touring schedule around the UK and the production of two self-released EP’s, both attracting critical acclaim from the mainstream rock press. Here you have three very down to earth Northern lads with a bunch of catchy tunes and a burning desire to succeed the old fashioned way - substance over style.

Armed with a shared love of rock music from throughout the ages (e.g. Manic Street Preachers, Alkaline Trio, Fugazi, The Gaslight Anthem, Brand New, Rise Against, Million Dead, Gang of Four, At The Drive In), and the frustration of wanting to get out and succeed against the odds. COLT 45 are on a mission to keep playing and writing as much as possible as front man Neil Harper explains; “It’s all we know, all we care about and now it’s time to take it up a level”.
