The Whybirds are a three-piece rock 'n' roll band from Bedford, England.

All three members (Dave Banks, Ben Haswell and Luke Tuchscherer) are singer/songwriters – giving the group a diverse range of songs and vocal styles – but without straying from The Whybirds' sanguine brand of rock 'n' roll.

Classic Rock journalist Derek Oliver said: "The Whybirds have it all; songs, musicianship and a sense of maturity that most acts of this kind can’t even comprehend. These guys are the real deal, you’ll be hearing more of The Whybirds some time soon."

According to Americana UK, The Whybirds “...sound like Pearl Jam having a fist fight with The Allman Brothers in Don Henley’s back yard. But what’s more important is that The Whybirds might just be the hardest working and hardest rocking band in Britain right now – a band destined for greatness”.

The Whybirds released their third studio album, A Little Blood, in November 2013 to great reviews (5/5Songwriting Magazine, 4/5R2 Rock N Reel, 4/5Scottish Daily Express, 7/10Uncut, 7/10Powerplay).

A Little Blood was the band’s eagerly awaited follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Cold Blue Sky (7/10Classic Rock, 4/5R2 Rock N Reel, 4/5Maverick Country)

The band’s previous releases – which also include Live Recordings Vol. 1 (2011) (4/5 – R2 Rock N Reel), The Whybirds (2008) and Tonight EP (2007) – are available from the online store and from iTunes, Amazon and other digital media.
