Gretsch Guitars are pleased to welcome Jack Edwards from UK based rock band Piston into the Gretsch artist roster.

Piston are set to release their eponymous debut album on Friday 13th September with a UK tour to follow where Jack will be sporting his Billy Duffy Signature White Falcon Gretsch guitar.

I am so excited to be associated with Gretsch Guitars,” Says Edwards.

“When I was 11, the first band I saw live was The Cult,” says Jack. Billy Duffy left me speechless. I swore blind that one day I would own that very guitar and bring it back into the world of new rock with cranked up amplifiers, effects and aggressive playing. I’m honoured to be an official Gretsch artist. It’s a childhood dream come true.”

Piston are a British five-piece rock ‘n’ roll engine made up of four members from the Midlands greased with a vocal roar from the south; which, when put together and fired up produce a no-nonsense sound not to be reckoned with!

Piston will release their long awaited self-titled debut album on Friday 13th September 2019.  The album is self-released with distribution by Music Glue.

Piston’s latest single “Rainmaker” is getting airplay on Planet Rock. Previous single “One More Day” was played on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show with Johnnie Walker.  Both singles were remixed by Grammy Award nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon).

The five piece rock and roll band from Cannock, Staffordshire, recently won a competition on Planet Rock to play the Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair at Mote Park in Maidstone on Sunday July 21st.   The band tour the UK with Collateral in September, followed by an October Roadstars UK tour with Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones and Gorilla Riot.
