The Varese's / Press

“The Varese's are Jonny Andrew on Vocals, Danny Hayden on Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Paul Tallant on Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Adam Murray on Bass Guitar and Bob Gaul - Drums and Percussion. Currently sticking to the local music scene where they have a strong fan base (they're No 1 on Reverbnation Indie Chart for Liverpool), however recent radio play should see them getting some attention from further afield. They were voted No 1 unsigned band worldwide for 3 weeks on the Forkster Rocks Out Review which boasts over 300,000 hits weekly and were selected for the MTV short-list for best unsigned bands for 2013 and been picked to play on BBCIntroducing (where I first heard them on Dave Monks show).”

“November 2011 saw the entrance of The Varese’s onto Liverpool’s music scene. A five-piece formed around Old Swan, whom have since been touring the city showcasing music that reflects the ‘tough, gritty streets’ from which they walk. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? But minus all the false pretence and you've got their self titled EP.”

“One of the bands, The Varese’s has been ranked the top unsigned band in the UK for several weeks running by Forkster and is up for a favourite Alternative band of the year award by Unsigned Revolution. The five piece band, which hails from Liverpool consists of Jonny Andrew, Danny Hayden, Paul Tallant, Adam Murray and Bob Gaul. Named as a band to watch by a variety of critiques online, the guys in the group are still humble. They were surprised and honoured to be asked to play for the troops. “It’s good to be here to play for the troops, especially the ones that are going to Afghanistan, it’s a send-off. It’s an honour and we hope that all those going will be safe and come back.” To add to their popularity with the Brits, they are also gaining steam in Canada. Their sound is very Liverpool/Manchester circa the 1990’s.”

Christina Marshall-Jeenes - The Sixth Sense Newspapaer

“From Liverpool, the quintet is a band still young in its life, their music merging melodic and heart borne sounds with sharp and edgy lyrics carrying the rawness of the streets and lives the band comes from. Their music is a thoughtful and poetic mix of potent soulful lyrics and vocals from Jonny Andrew, heated and irresistible guitar craft from Danny Hayden and Paul Tallant, alongside the emotive rhythms from bassist Adam Murray with the firm attentive beats of Bob Gaul. It is music to evoke images and personal thoughts whilst lighting up the shadows of the day with melodic charm........”
