About Least We Got Shoes
Hailing from the hardworking streets of Shipley, West Yorkshire, Least We Got Shoes is a band steeped in authenticity. Their music, a gritty fusion they call ‘boxcar rock‘, blends rock, bluegrass, Americana, and dashes of metal and punk, creating a sound as true to their roots as the ground beneath their feet.
Frontman Wayne Frear embodies the band’s spirit. His lyrics, drawn from his own life, are honest and unfiltered, echoing the likes of Johnny Cash in his straightforward take on life’s absurdities. Ben Martin, or B.D., brings a bluesy depth to their sound, influenced by his working-class upbringing and shaped by legends like Eric Clapton and B.B. King.
Bassist Andy Parkinson, a fellow Shipley native, swapped his mechanic tools for the bass guitar, now running two local music venues. His journey echoes the self-made path of musicians like Bruce Springsteen. Drummer Johnny C adds an eclectic beat, with a background as varied as their music, drawing on influences from family trips to the Himalayas to the raw energy of The Clash.
Together, these four musicians have created an album that’s a mix of real-life tales and larger-than-life adventures. Their songs capture the essence of freedom-seeking drifters, the resilience of cowboys, and the audacity of Vegas’s night owls. It’s music for the wanderers, the rebels, and anyone who’s ever felt on the outskirts of the mainstream.
Least We Got Shoes isn’t just playing songs; they’re narrating stories from the fringes of life. They invite listeners to join them in embracing the raw, unpolished truths of existence, shared through the powerful rhythm of ‘boxcar rock’.
