About Relish

Formed in County Down, Northern Ireland by brothers Ken (vocals/guitar) and Carl Papenfus (drums) and Darren Campbell (bass), Relish have released two highly regarded albums to date working with such acclaimed producers as John Leckie (Radiohead/The Stone Roses) and Al Clay (Stereophonics). From 4 chart-topping Irish singles, to topping the Japanese most played list and even having the unlikely request from Westlife to cover their single ‘Rainbow Zephyr' reworked as ‘Hey Whatever' which was a UK Top 5 and international hit past Relish releases have proven gold and platinum selling albums.

Now with third album ‘Connected' released in Oct 2011, the band have returned with an album filled with glorious melodies in the style that Relish are known for and only Relish can do whilst managing to remain unique in their delivery of a modern blend of rock & pop.

Relish has been hailed by some of the greatest contributors to music of our time. Champions include Brian May, Paul Weller, and U2's Larry Mullen among a host of world-renowned musicians. This album is most definitely their greatest work to date.

‘They are one of those bands who seem to be able to do everything without compromising, power, melody, class, focus. They've got it all. Potentially world class.'
Classic Rock Magazine (2011)

Connected is rock n roll for the masses make no mistake about that, because every song could be a single... Music Review (2011)

"It feels magical to be back with a new album, possibly the best album we have ever written," says Relish lead singer Ken Papenfus. "The band has a renewed spirit and enthusiasm and it really couldn't be better right now."

After having set up their own label Zephyr Sounds as a new home for forthcoming Relish releases, Ken and Carl secured a global licensing label deal with US label Rock Ridge Music, home to Sister Hazel and more. Relish are now distributed worldwide through ADA / Warner's.

"There were people in Indonesia, Canada, Japan, South Africa etc. who couldn't find Relish's previous albums, a situation that haunted us. Now there won't be anywhere or anyone who won't be able to find us if they look hard enough" said Darren.

Championed by the likes of Paul Weller, U2's Larry Mullen, Queen guitarist Brian May and Radio 1 and 2, Relish once again hit the ground running with their most recent singles ‘Something To Believe In' and ‘Connected' the former staying in the top 40 of the Irish airplay charts for 8 weeks whilst Connected gained UK exposure with an A listing on London's Total Rock Radio and live sessions on BBC London and Kerrang Radio. Both tracks were A-listed on all major stations in their home of N Ireland.
