Black Water Fiend
Black Water Fiend are a heavy rock band based in Coventry, England, consisting of Danny Starkey (Vocals/Bass) Sam Martin (Guitar) Kurt Sidwell (Drums) & Rhys Scott (Bass)
BWF was formed as a trio in 2018 originally as a university project but very quickly became a serious hitter on the local music scene.
The band travelled the country bringing their raw energy driven shows with them and making it their goal to connect with their audience.
To fill out their sound live a dedicated bass player was added making BWF a four piece.
Their last several singles have gained major radio airplay globally including national UK radio stations Planet Rock, Kerrang! & the BBC.
With a dedicated and loyal following we have headlined some of the best venues in the UK as well as securing festival slots at home and abroad.
