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.
Glenn Hughes, 'The Voice Of Rock', is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card.
Andrew Watt is a soulful singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist whose high-energy aggressive style & creative spirit are synonymous with New York City.
The legacy of Led Zeppelin lives on in Jason Bonham, British drummer and son of Zep's legendary John Bonham. Inheriting the best of his father's skills while mastering his own distinctive and dynamic technique.
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...

Some folk are saying rock is dead. Well, nobody told these guys. There's a new kid in town.Classic Rock 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
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
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.Rock Guitar Daily with Tony Conley
I'm in the Studio writing with Andrew Watt for a project we are doing together with Mr Hughes!!
