The Birmingham based band recorded an acoustic version of ‘If The Shoe Fits’ back in February before the Coronavirus lockdown came into force.
The band features Will Dann and Alex Hurdley on rhythm/lead guitar, Dave Gardner on bass/keyboards, Tom Wintle on Drums and lead singer Joe Morgan.
The idea for the band came when lifelong family friends Alex and Will, both from Kings Heath, talked about their love of music and started jamming together over a family Christmas lunch in December 2018. Shortly afterwards, the remaining line-up was recruited and during the last few months The Rift have been busy writing original material and rehearsing at studios in Digbeth.
The Rift’s original, melodic songs draw their musical inspiration from the likes of The Smiths, Oasis and The Who.
“During these difficult times we obviously can’t perform at the live gigs we had planned so we want to give our fans some new music for them to listen to whilst In lockdown. We hope they enjoy our acoustic rendition and plan to make a proper studio recording once everything has settled down,” said Will.
