“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 an Indie Rock four-piece based in Bristol/Plymouth. With Jack Hawkins providing anthemic guitar riffs on lead guitar, George Roach complementing Luke Westwood’s strong and powerful drum sections with his thick and simplistic bass lines. Which when put together provide a sublime wall of sound for Chay Snowdon to add his chugging rhythm guitar and uniquely powerful vocals.

‘What The Kids Want’ is the first lead single from Chay Snowdon’s debut EP which will be released in the autumn. “It’s an absolutely fantastic track, that is an absolute Tune! We were singing along all the way through, what an absolute tune that is!” Stuart Clack-Lewis, The Premium Blend Radio Show

‘Men Cry Too!’ is also set to be on the EP which has already received repeated plays by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and enjoyed huge support from Amazing Radio “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. 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.

Other massive shows the band have been invited to play include The British Fireworks Championships and Radio Plymouths Bonfire Night Celebrations on Plymouth Hoe to crowds of around 10,000 people. 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

MEN CRY TOO! Reviews

“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

“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

“Westcountry upstart Chay Snowdon and his band of merry musicians are back with a new track which is bang on trend. ‘Men Cry Too!’ opens with fraught guitars and clenched teeth vocals full of frustration and anger before the rest of the band join in with energy and not an inch of fat on the bones. By the time the chorus drops, there’s a sense of relief and a release of the tension but no stopping that driving rhythm section who are very much determined to push forwards at all costs. This is the sound of Jake Bugg fronting a agit-pop-punk band with the ethos of Idles and the far reaching appeal of the Killers and that, if you don’t mind me saying so, is a potent combination. Potent as fuck.” Listen With Monger
