Biography

British singer/songwriter and musician Rupert Stroud was born 25 February 1987 in Yorkshire England.

Rupert has independently funded and released 2 albums and gained a worldwide fan base through social media sites.

Whilst studying Music and New Media Tech. Stroud worked his way through Uni as a bar tender serving the diverse student population and locals of his home town Leeds. The experience, the good, the bad and the sometimes ugly, proved great inspiration for his song writing!

While recording his debut album in 2009, with legendary Leeds producer Will Jackson, (previous credits- The Kaiser Chiefs, The Pigeon Detectives, The Cribs and Embrace) Rupert met his drummer Mick Bedford (who plays drums on both albums) and Keyboard player/guitarist Mike Pearson, both accomplished musicians.

Stroud had been playing the Yorkshire gig circuit as a solo acoustic artist since the release of his debut album. While recording his second album Chasing The Night, again with Will Jackson as producer, Stroud asked the two musicians to join him on stage. The two Mikes soon became permanent fixtures in his line-up. This proved a powerful decision, as the three evolved into a dynamic stage performance. They are often joined on stage by songbird Kate Peters, primarily as jazz singer, who also sings backing vocals on ‘Chasing The Night’.

    Yes Miss grape here did. And a good job too. Good songs and voice with truly felt lyrical pieces deserve to be heard. Wasn't disappointed with any song here at all.
