Since being formed by
brothers Andrew & Jamie Pipe in late 2008, award winning British rock
band The Mentulls have carved out a niche for themselves on the
international rock scene.
Hailing from the north east of England, an area well known for producing
legendary artists like Paul Rodgers, David Coverdale, Chris Rea, The
Animals and Sting, who have all made major impacts on the world of rock
music, The Mentulls carry on that great tradition of original classic
rock music in a new eclectic way.
With music critics calling them “a band to watch now and for years to
come”, “so talented, so good” and “the future of prog rock” the band
have earned a reputation for blending original, emotive, bluesy classic
rock with progressive rock instrumentality played with gusto and energy.
As well as recording three albums to date, with their latest opus
“Reflections” having received rave reviews and acclaim, the band as well
as headlining their own shows have toured internationally and opened for
a plethora of big name artists including Wishbone Ash, Focus, Walter
Trout, Dr Feelgood among many others. In addition, the band have made
many large festival apperances where they have shared the stage with the
likes of The Stranglers and Feeder.
Also, the band and it’s members have won and been nominated for numerous
awards including Young Artist of The Year in ‘The British Blues Awards’
two years running in 2012 & 2013. Away from the band the members have
worked with Grammy award winners to rock legends.
Now, in 2019 after a short break away from the live arena Andrew, Jamie
and longtime drummer Nick Colman are joined on vocals by David Neil
Crabtree, who brings a new soulful dimension to the band.
