Cloudy Apple

Mangotsfield based rock n’ rollers fed up with the manufactured nonsense on reality shows who got together in the cold of a freezing warehouse to have a bash at coming up with their own tunes.

Inspired by their heroes….and hailing from the West Country, Cloudy Apple was born to provide you with anthem-like tunes and smoking riffs that you won’t be able to get out of your head!

They are firmly established as regulars at top music venues across Bristol having played The Fleece, The Louisiana and the Stag & Hounds this year!
