about

Praised in major publications from The Guardian to Shindig! and Classic Rock Magazine, Bath’s rock upstarts Ulysses deliver quirky pop delights and to die for big riffs with what is fast becoming Ulysses’ own distinct sound – a nether land between psych, glam and rock, guitar stroking and pop sheen. 
Having toured with Rival Sons, Purson and members of The Black Crowes, and with new 2016 album 'Law And Order' made with producer Steve Evans (Robert Plant / Siouxsie / Goldfrapp), it seems that Ulysses have unknowingly brought their cheeky influences (Syd Barrett, psych-era Stones, The Cars, Thin Lizzy, Hot Chocolate, Supergrass, Sailor, Alvin Stardust and Paul McCartney & Wings) to the heart of the new rock elite.

 

Vocals / Guitars - Luke Smyth
