The Sheratones

The Sheratones attended the first of the GBF’s Audition Nights and were immediately regarded as a top favourite. Formed in 2013, they deliver a driving and catchy brand of rock and have gone from strength to strength, thanks to their unique sound based on the song writing talents of vocalist and guitarist Matt Smith. Matt explains that it is really hard to narrow down what inspires their music, as the group have such diverse and wide spanning influences – “a cocktail of different genres”. Staying true to their music is their passion and love, which is palpable as you watch them perform.
