Second Hand Arms Dealer are a hugely driven, diverse and talented band from Bristol. Formed in 2017 from an established band, Goodnight Lois, we truly believe we have the recipe for producing and delivering groundbreaking music and we look pretty damn cool in doing it.
Drawing from multiple different influences means the range of music is vast. From Rage Against The Machine to Ben Howard there are no limitations to the sound we produce.
We are comprised of: Sam Schofield on Drums. Jordan Shortman on Guitar and Joe Spurrell on Bass and vocals. Schofield adds flavour to his drums with counter rhythms which play with and taunt the listener. Shortman juxtaposes heavy and thundering chorus riffs with beautifully crafted verse melodies running through his intricate pedal board to create a sonic wonder. While Spurrell connects the two with sporadic and funky bass lines, while drawing the listener close with his soft voice only to unleash the full power of his blues rock inspired, angst driven, edge of your seat vocals.
