Contemporary UK blues-rock band, Albany Down, came together with some classic rock and Brit blues-rock influences, but with their 2011 debut album, ‘South of the City, they found their own sound.

Albany Down comprises founder member Paul Turley on vocals and guitars, drummer and backing vocalist Pete Hancock and bassist and backing vocalist Ben Atkins. The band has recorded 4 Studio albums with producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME, Super Furry Animals).

Their brand new opus “Born in the Ashes”, which like previous albums has a strong “overcoming adversity” theme, is inspired by those darkest days during the 2020/22 Global Pandemic followed by War in Ukraine, political, civil and economic unrest. Their new 4th album was recorded at ROCKFIELD STUDIOS during the lockdown years 2020/2022.

“We all came to the band with different but related musical influences,” says founder member Paul Turley. “ I wanted to build on those and write and play music that was all our own and ‘really now’. We enjoyed working with Greg, and he has undoubtedly enabled us to expand both our musical horizons and our self-confidence in trying out new things.”

Albany Down are a band that runs on pure adrenalin, unrelenting energy and raw emotion: in the words of rock blogger Neil Mach "As hot as volcanic ash and yet as cool as snow slippers."
