«Rough Cut UK» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

Forming in Mid-August of 2011, Rough Cut are a band in a world full of clichés and predictability where new music is concerned. What makes them unique? Their drive and hunger to produce original, stand-out, rock n’ roll! Based in South-West England, the four-piece show song-craft and musicianship way beyond their years, each of their songs exhibiting its own originality, taking influence from AC/DC, Aerosmith, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake, just to name a few. Their explosive live shows ooze exuberance and professionalism, led by singing-guitarist Jack Simkin, they display confidence and pure love for the music they create in every note sung and played, hit and strummed. Newest member, guitarist Simon J Court stuns audiences with his technical ability, bassist, - and brother of Jack - James Simkin holds the band together, along with female drummer Jes Hartley, forming a solid rhythm section that not even a diamond could cut through.

This young band aim high, with dreams of playing festivals and touring worldwide with big names. In Mid-September 2011, the band took the stage with 80’s rockers Mr. Big for their first ever gig as a unit, this surreal moment enhanced the bands belief that they could be going places, and fast. Rough Cut are a novelty, a band you really want to keep your eyes firmly attached to.
