21 Grams


21Grams latest single is out now.

Colosseum, the title track from the recent Debut studio album. The song is backed with another exclusive Unreleased track a live version of Silver Bullet from the master recordings for our Live Album session for Enson Works Live .

The name 21Grams a name taken from the 21 Grams Theory of the weight of a human soul.

An originals five piece band from darkest Stoke-on-Trent who consist of Tim Edwards vocals, Mole Robbins drums, Si Degg lead guitar Rich Podmore (Pod) rhythm guitar and backing vocals and Huggy on Bass and backing vocals.

The music is a blend of big powerful songs which are rock In nature but thanks to a depth in mood and some rhythms and riffs from their own pattern book are not defined by the genre. There are clearly a number of musical influences within the band which rather than resulting in a copied sound form a melting pot for what is a definitive 21Grams sound. A clear indication of this is in the feedback the band have received which has referenced the likes of Classic rock, punk, alternative rock and even borderline high end glam rock.

Starting in 2014 working through from initial jamming sessions with no lead vocalist and original drummer Steve (brother of lead guitarist Si) it became obvious that a standout lead singer was needed to do the material justice.  This was achieved through an old friendship between rhythm guitarist Pod and Tim, who after meeting the other members for one rehearsal was immediately offered the job. When Steve decided he had achieved his musical goals in 2015 this trick was repeated when Tim reached out to recruit old drumming colleague Mole. Forming something of a perfect storm it was at this point that the band became a serious and recognised outfit.

From 2015 to 2016 the band made five one song contribution appearances on upstart Independent music label New York Factory Fast Records compilation releases. However, Whilst this did much to underpin an underground foundation for the band and gave it huge amounts of indie network airplay  it was time to move forward with bigger plans.

The first single Day of the Dead released on 5th October followed by Vampires Kiss on 2nd November. The main  release of the long awaited studio album was December 2020 December followed by Colosseum single in January and a fourth single to follow 2021.
