CALIFORNIA BREED-FEATURING GLENN HUGHES, JASON BONHAM AND ANDREW WATT- ARE SET TO RELEASE FIRST SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM MAY 20TH

glennhughesjasonbonham400 Think of California and you think of brilliant color and bright sunlight. Think of a breed and it’s all about bloodlines and brotherhood. Put the two together as California Breed, and you have the most exciting new band of 2014, built around the foundation of legendary vocalist-bassist Glenn Hughes, drummer extraordinaire Jason Bonham and 23-year-old newcomer guitarist-singer-songwriter Andrew Watt. Mixing massive riffs, gutsy vocals and gale force rhythms, this powerful three-piece band will release their self-titled debut album May 20th on Frontiers Records. It was produced by Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings and more). Look out for future announcements on the band at www.californiabreed.com.

California Breed (album cover art pasted below) was recorded at Cobb’s Nashville studio and features equal co-writing credits among the three-man lineup. “It’s proper rock,” Hughes told ClassicRockMagazine.com (2/6), “but at the same time it’s very now. Andrew is as influenced by Mick Ronson as he is Jimmy Page.” “This kid is amazing,” says Bonham. “The first time we met I thought he looked like the white Jimi Hendrix. And he plays in the studio likes he’s onstage!”

Glenn Hughes, “The Voice Of Rock,” is a true original, a legendary icon whose credits include Deep Purple and guesting with everyone from Black Sabbath to Earth, Wind & Fire — up to his most recent collaboration in rock supergroup Black Country Communion. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card. The legacy of Led Zeppelin lives on in Jason Bonham, British drummer and son of Zep’s legendary John Bonham. He has inherited the best of his father’s skills while mastering his own distinctive and dynamic technique. Jason has followed his own distinctive path over the years, fronting his own successful outfits like Bonham, and playing with Led Zeppelin, Foreigner, Heart and, most recently, movie composer Hans Zimmer. Andrew Watt is a soulful singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist whose high-energy aggressive style & creative spirit are synonymous with New York City. Hughes says: “I live in the moment, it’s all about NOW, California Breed is exactly where I live, breathe and where my freak flag flies.”

  1. If it’s anything like Black Country Communion I’m looking forward to it.

    This is what I refer to as an automatic Tuesday buy! 2/3 of this band emerging out of Black County Communion’s ashes with a new kid that I’m sure will be killer; as I put great trust in the tastes of Hughes and Bonham. Those 3 BCC albums in LESS THAN 3 YEARS were unbelievable; sorry they couldn’t continue but I’m sooooooooooo looking forward to this!

    • I agree, and also have to believe this kid has got to be pretty good on guitar for these two to hook up with him. Hoping for less pop, more rock.

  3. Hope the hype holds.
