Rixton are lead singer and rhythm guitarist Jake Roche, 21, bass/keys and backing vocalist Danny Wilkin, 23, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Charley Bagnell, 23, and drummer Lewi Morgan, 23.
Jake and Danny started writing together 3 years ago in Danny’s parents caravan. Two years later they were introduced to Charley through mutual friends and year later they stumbled upon Lewi in a back alley of a Manchester pub (playing pots and pans) and asked him to join the band. Drawing comparisons to Maroon 5, Rixton has been steadily gaining a large YouTube following from their reimagined covers of tracks including Taylor Swift’s “Trouble”,Rita Ora’s “How We Do (Party)”, Chris Brown’s “Don’t Wake Me Up” , R. Kelly’s “Ignition” and more with over 500,000 views to date.
“Make Out”, produced by Benny Blanco & Wallpaper, is a fun sneak peak of what’s to come from the band, who were recently signed to School Boy/ Giant Little Man/Interscope Records.
