JW Paris

JW Paris is a 90’s grunge Britpop inspired three-piece featuring Gemma Clarke, Danny Collins and Aaron Forde. JW Paris has seen their first three singles ’Sober’, ‘Favourite Thing’ and ‘Royalty’ gain national and international radio play from Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, SiriusXM, Absolute Radio and Radio X. They have supported the likes of The Amazons, Skinner Brothers, Yonaka, Avalanche Party and The Blinders to name a few.

JW Paris has been described as sounding like ‘Joy Division’ and ‘where gritty meets swaggery’, by Chris Hawkins (6 Music) and ‘face-melting riff’s by Jack Saunders (Radio 1) 2022 looks to be an interstellar year for the trio with an 11 date UK Tour which started in February supporting Leave the Capital and then hitting the road as main support for The Skinner Brothers.

JW Paris’s new single Electric Candle Light will be released on 25th March 2022. Electric Candle Light is a futuristic-analogue-nostalgia fuelled track all about those nights where you seem to fall into a time-lapse and wish for those past better days. Electric Candle Light will be closely followed by a second single with an album ready and set for release in the Summer of 2022.

JW Paris sound has been developing from birth, with Aaron (Vocals/Bass) and Danny (Vocals/Guitar) knowing each other like brothers, as their Dad’s were in the band Choke throughout the 90’s who were signed to EMI. Aaron and Danny have gone from forming their sound in a 24 hour storage lock-up (then being kicked out) to anywhere now in London that will let them play loud. JW Paris have been taken even more forward with the arrival of Gemma behind the drums (Babyshambles).
