Our Overview. 

Over the last 18 months the Kris Barras Band have become one of the hottest and fastest rising rock acts in the UK. He had stopped as an MMA fighter and self-released his 2016 debut album, he was playing pub venues to 20-50 people playing ZZ Top covers amongst originals, did a handful of blues festivals, played London only twice (as a support artist) and his aim was to get played on Planet Rock Radio. He was close to giving up on music, the next album was his one last shot. ‘The Divine And Dirty’ was released on Provogue on 23 March 2018.

Then the ball started rolling. The Kris Barras Band have played 4 UK headline tours, supported Beth Hart, Joanne Shaw Taylor, and this led to slots with GUN, King King, The Magpie Salute and Therapy? plus Jonny Lang & Walter Trout on Provogue’s Rockin’ The Blues festival tour. After winning Planet Rock’s Best New Band Award, Kris was invited to becoming a special guest presenter for 2 shows.

If this wasn’t enough, Kris also joined Supersonic Blues Machine as lead singer/guitarist in July 2018 and toured Europe with the band and Billy F Gibbons! He features on the upcoming ‘Road Chronicles: Live’ album. Kris Barras - from MMA fighter to hottest rising rock act in the UK. From “wanting to be played” on radio to being a presenter!
