Birmingham based ‘Broken Witt Rebels’ to play The Sunflower Lounge this month on their ‘Georgia Pine’ EP Tour


Georgia Pine is the new 5-track EP from the British rock band that everyone is talking about – “Broken Witt Rebels“. After delivering outstanding performances in 2015, the energetic, young 4-piece, who hail from Birmingham, are now looking to win over new fans with their infectious blend of rock and soulful blues.

Georgia Pine is authentic, rootsy, and real, and has serious hit potential.  Similarly to the new generation of contemporary and distinctive soulful roots rock bands like Alabama Shakes and Black Keys, Broken Witt Rebels strike a chord.

The band pay homage to the sounds of old blues and Stax guitarists, but, at the same time, their unique approach to song-writing and recording gives the EP a fresh and modern authenticity that is entirely unique.

The EP was engineered and produced by Tom Gittins, who has worked on recent recordings by Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin).  Gittins cites the Rebels’ lead singer, Danny Core, as an amazing vocal talent in the tradition of Steve Marriot and Joe Cocker – a distinctive heart-wrenching vocal style that’s steeped deep within the inner core of blues and soul.

The 5-track EP, released for worldwide distribution in April, is currently available for pre-order from the band’s official website The first single, Low, will be released as a music video with a Soundcloud link for free streaming on Friday 26th February.
