Winning over audiences with their own brand of progressive melodic rock, The Mentulls music transcends genres, sounding new and fresh yet timeless and classic all at the same time.

Add in Andrew Pipe’s searing, soaring guitar work, Jamie Pipe’s ‘prog star’ style Hammond, synthesiser and piano work plus the soulful vocals and multi-instrumental prowess of David Neil Crabtree, and you have something truly unique and special.

Being genre defying and original has been the band’s objective since it was formed by Andrew and Jamie back in 2008. In the years following the formation of the band, they have carved themselves a niche on the international rock scene, impressing a growing fan base and critics alike.

In the words of one well respected journalist, “these are genuine rock stars with the chops to make it happen live as well as on album”, which perfectly sums up the band’s ability to bring the goods in the recording studio as well as creating an impressive show on stage.

As well as touring internationally in their own right, the band have earned their stripes opening for and touring with legendary acts like Wishbone Ash, Focus and Walter Trout. They are also equally at home on major festival stages sharing the bill with the likes of The Stranglers, Feeder, FM and Cats In Space.

Away from the band, each of its members are respected in their own right, having worked with everyone from Grammy award winners to rock legends. Andrew is British Blues Award nominated, one of the youngest to be nominated for the award, two years running. David’s own work as a singer-songwriter is highly acclaimed and Jamie works with a multitude of top artists outside of the band.

The Mentulls released a brand-new studio album ‘Recipe For Change’ on 22 October 2021. Joining the core band on the album are, world-class drummer and the albums co-producer Wayne Proctor and Raven Eye’s Oli Brown who adds backing vocals.
