Biography

The Rakers are a two-piece Garage-Rock outfit from Leeds. Buzz-saw whiskey-soaked blues tell cautionary tales of women, wine, snuff and crime through heavy riffs and pounding drums - all set against the backdrop of wonderfully crafted lyrics and harmonies.

The band take inspiration from the very roots of their craft, drawing upon the transatlantic spirit of Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf and Seasick Steve, whilst displaying a rawness and intensity throughout their performances which manages to rake in even the most unassuming of audiences.

Johnboy - Guitars and Vocals
Sammy - Drums and Backing Vocals
