Rory Wynne recently released his debut EP ‘What Would Rory Wynne Do?’. The tracks were produced by The Coral’s James Skelly and Richard Turvey (Blossoms, Cabbage, She Drew the Gun) at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. James Skelly was quick to sign the 17-year-old to his label ‘Skeleton Key records’ after watching Rory support fellow hometown band ‘Blossoms’ at Stockport County Supporters Club.


The EP draws influence from some of Rory’s musical heroes including Nirvana, Beatles, Oasis and Aerosmith. Speaking of his musical heroes, Rory said ‘One of my biggest inspiration is Jack White, the way he keeps working on different projects and evolving, you always have to evolve or you’ll be forgotten’


A successful year to date, 2017 has already seen him opening for Blossoms on The VO5 NME Tour as well as their 8,000 capacity sold-out show at Castlefield Bowl in Manchester. He also supported Cabbage at their London Dingwalls and Manchester Academy 2 shows. The summer began with a headline show at The Deaf Institute in Manchester and sees Rory performing at major festivals across the UK
