“Take four suave young gentlemen. Now, add in a set of flashy shirts and skinny jeans, and throw in a pinch of hairspray. Then, arm them with guitars, dollop on a shedload of reach-for-the-skies choruses, and sprinkle on enough attitude to put Gallagher to shame, and what do you get?The answer, it seems, is Chay Snowdon.” One On One Music Magazine

CHAY SNOWDON are a four-piece alternative rock outfit based in the South West of England. Their influences range from Indie Rock through to contemporary powerhouse alternative indie – all seared together with the trademark vocal sneer and gritty snarl of lead singer Chay.  “Once again, the group astound me with an innovative, energetic and captivating single. Teetering between alternative rock, indie rock and rock n roll, the lads add a contemporary twist to old-school rock sounds”. The Other Side Reviews

The band’s debut EP ‘Are You Sitting Comfortably? (Then We’ll Begin)’ has received massive support from BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq on his evening and daytime shows, John Kennedy on Radio X, playlisted from Wyatt Wendels on Planet Rock, repeat plays on Amazing Radio and Sirius XM (USA), plus huge support from BBC Introducing – Chay was also interviewed as a featured artist on Sarah Goslings BBC Introducing in the South West.

One of the bands main focuses was always to make sure that the tracks have just as much energy when recorded as they do live. However, this time they had the added hurdle of recording in the midst of a pandemic. With a live room dedicated to recording, a microphone wired up to a caravan that sat on the driveway and the best weather Britain could muster, it certainly was an experience that you couldn’t help but inject energy into. ‘Are You Sitting Comfortably? (Then We’ll Begin)’ was produced by John Cornfield, (Muse, Supergrass and Robert Plant).

‘Loud Shirts’ is a mammoth rock track saturated in the raw, energetic musicianship of Chay Snowdon Indie Buddie

“This definitely is ‘What The Kids Want’ by Chay Snowdon….From the pictures I’ve seen of them they have an impressive array of dandy shirts. What I really like about this one, is the almost 70’s glam rock n roll nuances an that” Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music

“Men Cry Too! caught my attention recently not only for the song craft and the music but also for the mental health message which I think is really important.” Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio. The band have recently perform a live session for BBC Introducing in the West, “He has always been a great song writer and now he is making his songs sound absolutely fabulous I’m very proud to get him into the white room”  Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing in the West.

“Once you hear frontman Chay Snowdon’s incredibly unique and powerful voice, you’ll understand why. Their gritty, infectious real-talk rock sits somewhere in between Catfish and The Bottlemen and Kings Of Leon” Total Entertainment

Chay Snowdon has been selling out their own headline shows time and time again, as well as playing some amazing festivals including Liverpool Sound City, 2000 Trees, Y-Not Festival, Boardmasters, Dot To Dot Festival, Lechlade Festival, Oceanfest, Chagstock and Looe Music Festival.

As well as supporting The Sherlocks, Jordan Allen, The Snuts, Hunter and The Bear, Glass Caves, Red Faces, Ink and Vant.


“As a live performer, Snowdon is electrifying. We’d say that he’s a quiff-brandishing typhoon who doesn’t let up throughout the duration of the set, but that would be over-complicating it somewhat; so, instead, we’ll just tell you that he’s completely and utterly brilliant to watch. Every note is hit, and every opportunity to thrash around the stage like a man possessed is welcomed with open arms – to us, there’s not much more you could ask from a frontman”

“He came, he saw, and he came perilously close to blowing the roof off of one of Bristol’s premier live music venues – we think you’d be foolish to forget the name Chay Snowdon.” One On One Music

“With jaunty guitars, a smooth as honey melody and swagger drenched musicianship Chay Snowdon present us with another passionate slick anthem with ‘Men Cry Too’!. With powerful vocals exuding emotion and fiery charisma while the punchy drums create a mosh ready backdrop, this tune packs in oodles of gusto. It’s smooth with zesty guitar injections, wiggle-infused bass line and a cool rock ‘n’ roll persona ready for arena sing-along’s and multiple radio plays. These guys know how to write catchy, tight and heart pounding tracks sure to have you singing for days.”  Indie Buddie

“Powerful, smokey vocals that resemble the bluesyness of KOL are the hightlight of the song, along with anthemic guitar riffs and powerful drumming. We are hooked!” The Girls At The Rock Show
