Yes, it’s the British band that have shared the stage with The Darkness, Buckcherry and Devilskin and racked up almost 200 shows in three years.
If there’s one thing these boys know the meaning of, it’s hard work.
In this episode of The Road To Rock I welcome Jonno Smyth to the pod, Black Tree Vultures drummer.
We discussed how he and Guitarist Aaron Hammersley formed BTV and how they got the other members on board.
Jonno talks about what bands need to be prepared to do to make it in the music industry these days, how he secured his drumming equipment endorsements and how 2021 is shaping up tp be a busy year for BTV now they’ve signed with Roulette Media and Iron Road Talent Management.
If you’re wondering why Jonno’s name sounds familiar, it’s probably due to his time in rock band Voodoo Vegas which saw him support the likes of Status Quo, Y&T and Phil Campbell.
Despite parting ways with the band, Jonno is frank and honest about the reasons why and credits them with learning valuable lessons that helped him form Black Tree Vultures.
