Reuben Archer’s Personal Sin

Welcome to REUBEN ARCHER’S PERSONAL SIN: the solo project from the STAMPEDE vocalist and former vocalist of LAUTREC, WILD HORSES and LIONHEART.

In the summer of 2012 having formed a strong songwriting partnership, REUBEN ARCHER and young hot-shot Stampede guitarist and multi-talented music virtuoso ROB WOLVERSON teamed up to write and record a debut solo album.

The album, entitled ‘Personal Sin’ features 13 tracks produced by Reuben and Rob Wolverson and mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Steve Harris).  It was released August 19 2013, and features guest appearances from Dave Meniketti (Y&T), John ‘Rhino’ Edwards (Status Quo), Neil Murray (Whitesnake, Gary Moore, Coliseum 2, Snakecharmer), Harry James (Magnum, Thunder, Snakecharmer), Luke Morley (The Union, Thunder), Paul Quinn (Saxon), Paul Raymond (UFO, PRP), Derek Holt (Climax Blues Band), Rocky Newton (Lionheart, MSG), Kevin Riddles (Angel Witch, Tytan) and more.

The band have been working on their second album and are pleased to announce that they are set to release PETROLHEAD on December 8 2017 via their own label, Toxic Arrow Records.

The album features the united talents of Reuben Archer (vocals), Rob Wolverson (guitars/production), Chris Clowsley (guitars), Neil Ablard (drums), Jim Cooper (bass), Linda Kelsey-Foster (keyboards), Mat Taylor (saxophone) plus vocal additions by rising blues talent Rebecca Downes

Produced by Archer and co-writer and guitarist Rob Wolverson, the album features 11 auto-themed hard rock, blues and funk tracks which pay homage to one of the oldest and best-loved marriages in British & American music culture – that between rock ‘n’ roll and fast cars.

A self-confessed lifelong ‘petrolhead’, Reuben says of the concept: “Consider this album my tribute to what may become a bygone age; a chance to revel in the splendour of the sound of a V8 engine; that old romantic vision captured so intoxicatingly back in the 50s and 60s by pioneering R&B stalwarts who gave us  Jackie Brenston & Ike Turner’s ‘Rocket 88’, Chuck Berry’s ‘No Particular Place To Go’ and Wilson Pickett’s ‘Mustang Sally’, to name but a few!
