About Stereophonics

Stereophonics are a Welsh rock band that formed in 1992 in the village of Cwmaman in Cynon Valley. The band consists of Kelly Jones (lead vocals and guitar), Richard Jones (bass guitar and backing vocals), Adam Zindani (guitar and backing vocals) and Jamie Morrison (drums). The group previously included drummer Stuart Cable, who was sacked in 2003 replaced by Javier Weyler who also left in 2012. Stereophonics have released ten studio albums, including six UK number one albums and one number one single, 2005’s Dakota“. A successful compilation album, Decade in the Sun, was released in November 2008 and charted at number two in the United Kingdom.

Described as “classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals,” the band have a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and “British traditional rock”. Stereophonics' debut album, Word Gets Around, was released in August 1997 and charted at number six in the UK, aided by some successful singles. However, the band would not properly break the mainstream until the release of Performance and Cocktails in 1999 and have since achieved a total of ten top-ten singles. Having sold around 10 million copies worldwide, Stereophonics are one of the most successful Welsh rock acts. Upon the release of Pull the Pin (2007), they became the eighth group in chart history to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums.
