Josh McClorey

Drawing inspiration from classic blues bands from the '60s and '70s, The Strypes are a four-piece rock band from Ireland, whose growing reputation has seen them tour across Europe in support of bands such as Arctic Monkeys and The Courteeners amongst others.

Formed in 2011 and consisting of Ross Farrelly (lead vocals/harmonica), Josh McClorey (lead guitar/vocals), Peter O'Hanlon (bass guitar/harmonica) and Evan Walsh (drums), The Strypes have gained several high profile fans, including Sir Elton John, who noted "They have a knowledge of R&B and blues at 16 years of age that I have only amassed in my 65 years. They're just like a breath of fresh air."
