Line Up

The Wayward Drive is coming out swinging, armed with energetically loud guitar music that never went away! So dust off those dance moves and warm up your voice. Get ready to feel the broken hearts, hard earned rage, airy melancholy and the joys of yesteryears!

20-year-old singer-songwriter, Musician and Composer Kiah Lindsay is a fresh artist from rural West Wales. Her unique fusion of Indie Folk/Country and Soul highlights a 'New Age Wales': a breathtaking and intoxicating landscape full of rich heritage and culture.

Kiah's first indipendent release came in 2022 with a "Holly Humberstone" inspired pop track titled, 'KEEP BURNING'

Soon after, she got signed by Cwtch Records and began working on her very first, full length LP.

Kiah's 2023 DEBUT ALBUM 'Meet Me' is an enchanting and honest story of self discovery. She discusses relationships, homesickness and coming of age.

Kiah takes inspiration on this record from artists like, (Ben Howard, John Mayer, Lizzy McAlpine and Phoebe Bridgers) along with her life long passion of 'Theatre'. She encapsulates us in her story telling much like the written works of Stephen Sondheim.

Continuing to write for pleasure and future projects, Kiah is taking a step into Soul, with inspiration from (Etta James and Carole King).

Embodying the assertive DIY attitude of punk rockers, but placed in a commercial environment, Ben Kidson moves with the times. His music combines modern pop writing and production elements (think harry styles, taylor swift), with the alternative rock energy and arrangement of his heroes, Nirvana.

in 2022/23, Ben’s energetic live show earnt him a spot as a finalist at the Isle of Wight Festival’s ‘New Blood’ Competition, and at the American Express Gold Unsigned competition. If you’ve used Tiktok recently, you’ll see and hear him on an advert for Amex, which has had over 7 million views to date, and if you use Amazon Prime, you’ve likely seen him in ‘Unsigned’, a documentary about the competition itself.

Ben already has a fan in legendary singer Robert Plant, who signed him to the Wolves Records, and helped him get Radio 1 support on his first single ‘Joking’. He performed on the BBC introducing stage at Boardmasters festival in August, with his performance being chosen as one of the few to be broadcast across BBC Southwest as a highlight of the weekend.
