The Band

Think of California and you think of brilliant color and bright sunlight. Think of a breed and it's all about bloodlines and brotherhood. Put the two together as California Breed and you have the most exciting new band of 2014.



Built around the foundation of legendary vocalist-bassist Glenn Hughes and drummer extraordinaire Jason Bonham, with the addition of the 23-year-old newcomer guitarist-singer Andrew Watt, what is on paper a three-piece, the sheer range of sounds and melodies you get are breathtaking.


That's the thing about breeds. They go all the way back, in order to bring forth something new. Be the first to hitch your horse to the California Breed wagon.

 




Life is good, and there is much music and journeys to take. I'm working on the NOW...

Reviews

It's a buffett of 70’s rock tropes, soaring choruses, and triple-thick guitar tones. California Breed successfully mixes psychedelia, soul, and heavy rock into a tasty brew.

Vintage Guitar Magazine

Glenn Hughes preposterous vocals get a thorough workout & are as good as anything he's put his name to in 40 years.

Q Magazine

Some folk are saying rock is dead. Well, nobody told these guys. There's a new kid in town.

Classic Rock Magazine

Jason Bonham and Glenn Hughes return with guitarist Andrew Watt. The results are surprisingly explosive. This is the best thing Bonzo Jr or Hughes have done in years.

Record Collector Magazine

Overall, this debut album gets the fist pumping and the heart righteously racing.

Guitar & Bass Magazine

We’re used to magnificent performances from ‘The Voice Of Rock’ Glenn Hughes and the ever-amazing Jason Bonham, but the wild card here is young six-string-slinger Andrew Watt. His playing is superb – stunning even – on every song.

100% Rock Magazine

...the self-titled California Breed is a heavy amalgamation of Hughes' soaring vocals, Bonham's imitable finesse behind a drum kit and Watt's intuitive, modern swagger on the guitar and songwriting abilities.

VintageRock.com

California Breed is a rock n roll jigsaw, drawing the pieces from soul, gospel, classic rock and r n’ b. This completes a stunning and colourful picture of air punching riffs and soaring vocals...

Global Onslaught

...they’ve stripped the band down to the bare essentials – guitar, bass, drums and vocals, with all the parts playing an important role throughout the album.

Planet Mosh

...quite possibly, the twenty first century's most dynamically infectious, organically alluring, and innately rocked-up retro record thus far.

Metal Discovery

This really is a powerhouse of a band sounding like they are ready to conquer the world, so come taste the California Breed brothers and sisters – trust me they are divine!

Über Röck

A raw, fiery rock cocktail that marries belligerent attitude with heartfelt emotion, delicate touch with super confident strut.

Powerplay Rock & Metal Magazine

Everything about the album sounds as though the three are playing as one and this is something that really can only be found in a trio; there isn’t any place to hide but also no flab so the results are equally reliant on all three members.

Music-News.com

This self-titled album needed to stand proud on its own and to show Hughes, Bonham and Watt unleashed. We have a collection of 12 tracks which hint at what is to come whilst simultaneously slapping our ears about with what they have done right now.

Rockulus Maximus!

The stunning thing about California Breed is that they manage not only to create an incomparable Hard Rock album, but that they manage to make it sound so absolutely essential.

The Rock Pit

Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham have done some of their best work yet, and the avenue of guitar heroes has a new kid on the block in Andrew Watt. This is a fresh, new beast that will surprise a great many listeners.

I'm in the Studio writing with Andrew Watt for a project we are doing together with Mr Hughes!!
