The members of Viola Beach - Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe, and Jack Dakin - were scheduled to perform at SXSW this year as part of the BBC Introducing and PRS showcase. Their tragic car accident in the early morning of Saturday has left families and friends stunned and in mourning. Their manager, Craig Tarry, was known well by my friend and Amazing Radio host, Shell Zenner, and she had interviewed Viola Beach in the first week of January, having attended their gigs over the past year. A portion of that interview is used with permission in this podcast, and many thanks and hugs go out to her. You can listen to the full interview with Shell Zenner and Viola Beach here.
Buy Viola Beach “Swings and Waterslides” on iTunes.
