Info for Light It Up
Over the last 18 months the Kris Barras Band have become one of the hottest and fastest rising rock acts in the UK. He had stopped as an MMA fighter and self-released his 2016 debut album, he was playing pub venues to 20-50 people playing ZZ Top covers amongst originals, did a handful of blues festivals, played London only twice (as a support artist) and his aim was to get played on Planet Rock Radio. He was close to giving up on music, the next album was his one last shot. 'The Divine And Dirty' was released on Provogue on 23 March 2018.
Then the ball started rolling. The Kris Barras Band have played 4 UK headline tours, supported Beth Hart, Joanne Shaw Taylor, and this led to slots with GUN, King King, The Magpie Salute and Therapy? plus Jonny Lang & Walter Trout on Provogue's Rockin' The Blues festival tour. After winning Planet Rock's Best New Band Award, Kris was invited to becoming a special guest presenter for 2 shows. If this wasn’t enough, Kris also joined Supersonic Blues Machine as lead singer/guitarist in July 2018 and toured Europe with the band and Billy F Gibbons! He features on the upcoming 'Road Chronicles: Live' album.
Kris Barras - from MMA fighter to hottest rising rock act in the UK. From "wanting to be played" on radio to being a presenter. From playing ZZ Top songs in a pub to actually being in a band with Billy F Gibbons. The future for the Kris Barras Band looks very exciting!

2019 has seen the band already complete a near sell-out UK tour, going from playing to an average of just 50 people per show in late 2017, up to selling out 400-500+ capacity venues, all in the space of just over one year.
Plans for the rest of the 2019 include a main stage appearance at the Ramblin’ Man Fair festival, main support to Black Stone Cherry on their UK/Ireland dates and a spot on the ‘Rockin the Blues’ tour. This will be several dates across Europe alongside label mates Jonny Lang and Walter Trout. With a brand new album scheduled for release later this year, the band will have extensive UK/european tour plans for the autumn.
After a self-released debut in 2016 (Lucky 13), The release of the much anticipated second album, 'The Divine and Dirty' is when Kris really started to turn heads.
