Product Description

James met up with Toby Jepson (Little Angels) in March 2012 after a friend had recommended they might work well together. Jepson had no idea of James' past but they clicked - personally and musically. James ad the bones of several songs and an idea of the sound he wanted – one of the first tracks to emerge being album track Kingdoms (which James had been playing with for a while). The writing process was quick and the pair soon laid down instrumentation at Vale Studios with Jepson producing (credits include The Answer, Saxon and The Virgin Marys) and Steve Harris (Foo Fighters, U2) as engineer. James plays all the piano on the album. Vocals were recorded in five days at Jepson's studio in Scarborough.

I am not the worlds biggest bike racing fan, but do follow it somewhat, so I was fully aware of who Mr Toseland was, so when I heard he was releasing an EP last year and that Toby Jepson of Little Angels was involved, my interest was piqued.
I bought the Life is beautiful EP after hearing and enjoying the video to the title track, and found that the 3 other songs on the EP were as good or dare I say it, better.
So when the pledge campaign was announced for the full album I did no hesitate to pledge. And then even booked a ticket to see them live. What I can say after getting this album a few days before general release is that the album expands on the EP as it includes all of the tracks from the EP, with the only change being that the piano based demo of Renegade is replaced on the album by the full on rocked out electric version.
Unsurprisingly with Jepson producing and co-writing most if not all of the songs, there are a few Little Angels influences here and there, but these are so small that you certainly wouldnt say this was an LA inspired band.
At times James reminds me of Danny Vaughn of Tyketto, at other times Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge/Slash, but at no point does he sound exactly like these guys.
The album is a classic rock album with a modern touch here and there, and should certainly appeal to people who have a penchant for big arena style rock of the 80s.
The songs are catchy as hell, and go from full on rockers to heart felt ballads.
If you check out the three videos on youtube (Life is beautiful, Renegade and Crash landing) and like them, then you will like the rest of the album as well.
Great debut, and I look forward to seeing them again live as well.

The first time I heard Toseland's musical talents was on the much loved digital radio station Planet Rock in mid-2013. For a while I sat there, listening to the song 'Life Is Beautiful' thinking to myself "Where the hell do I know that name?" It then dawned on me; this was the same Toseland as British world superbike champion and former MotoGP racer James Toseland. A well known sports personality turned musician... What could possibly go wrong? Could it turn into a "Waddle & Hoddle"? Thankfully not!

Toseland's first album release does not disappoint. It is a nice slice of good old rock music, perfectly paced to nod along to with pint in hand or jump around like a lunatic to. It's got the catchy guitar licks, infectious drum beats which will get you tapping along with your fingers or air-drumming along. Those sing along chorus sections with the gang-vocal backups and plenty of attitude to match. On the whole it is a nice kick back to the 70's style rock sounds we all love but with a more modern twist. What it might lack in rawness in some parts, it more than makes up for it with the energy and the passion it delivers.

"Renegade" is 11 tracks long and it weighs in at roughly 45 minutes long. No song is longer than 4:30 so listening to it doesn't feel like a task. Everything is straight to the point, there's no big dramatic build ups (though sometimes, dragging it out for that special moment in the song is worth the extra minute or two in length!) and it does have some variety to it too - it's got a ballad in there which wouldn't be out of place on a dodgy 80's AOR album and its even got a more modern rock styled song in there too.

I heard the Renegade single on planet rock last year & was pretty impressed & came to this band on the strength of that rather than on Mr Toselands previous fame but being aware of who He Is too.

The album sounds big & fresh with great production & a nice British rock vibe (co written with Toby Jepson of Little Angels).
surprisingly the is no filler songs on here & everything sounds like they mean it - all played with excellent musicianship
& Jame's vocals are spot on,you can hear influence,but He's his own man on here.

I saw the band a couple of nights ago at the Zephyr Lounge in Leamington Spa & really enjoyed the live energy of the band (different line up to the album band) & was impressed how it came across.

I Had a very brief chat with James after the show & He's a nice guy, go support Him & his band folks ,so refreshing to see an honest UK band enjoying what they do.

Right from the first song the energy and passion of this album sums Toseland up. I didn't know the band till a month ago now im searching gig dates to catch them as soon as I can. Jame's voice is fantastic throughout and the guitar and bass lines blend seamlessly to make this a brilliant listen on a long drive with the volume wound right up !! 5 stars from me guys.

the talented one, i love eighties rock and this is as good as it was back in the day.I would imagine a live set from this band well worth a visit. As i am 63 yrs now i will skip that and settle for the album. Good luck in your new venture.

Some great tracks and a first shot at a rock career after the successful one he had with bikes (Super and MotoGP) - Well done James.
