I spoke with BRIAN TICHY about his new band, SILVERTHORNE, who have just released their debut 5 song EP. We touched on many things centred around the band, how they came together, writing, recording, JIMI HENDRIX riffs, E.L.O. drum beats and John Bonham drum sounds. Fascinating chat.
Check it out below as well as some videos and a link to the EP.

SILVERTHORNE are the rock band that people have been searching for! Producing a bombastic yet deeply authentic sound that delivers exciting, soulful and earthy rock songs SILVERTHORNE manage to cross rock genres with ease, whilst still flowing smoothly into your senses.
SILVERTHORNE tips its hat to the classic rock bands of yesteryear as well as looking firmly to the future and that future is looking exceedingly bright.
Featuring the soaring powerhouse vocals of Englishman PETE SHOULDER (Winterville, The Union) and superstar drummer BRIAN TICHY (who has played with everyone from Whitesnake, Ozzy, Slash, Billy Idol, Foreigner and many more legendary artists), along with bassist DANIEL SPREE, SILVERTHORNE recently delivered a monstrous debut single in the shape of 'Tear The Sky Wide Open'.
The track caught the attention of fans and critics alike. With its ominous riff, huge chorus, driving bass, weighty drums and a groove that evokes the vast expanse of the Southern California canyons from where the band was born, 'Tear The Sky Wide Open' has already got fans salivating. The teaser video for the track received over 20,000 views in its first 24 hours of release across the band’s social media platforms. That figure doubled the second day! An amazing result for a brand-new act!
SILVERTHORNE delivered their 2nd single and Video ‘Black River Rising’ in November and it is another riff laden beast of a track. Darker and more brooding than its predecessor; 'Black River Rising' sees the band members dig extremely deep within and leave nothing behind on this track.
