Manchester five-piece Pondarosa - formed of James Millington (vocals), Lawrence Aspin (lead guitar), Joe Anderson (rhythm guitar), Adam Ghidouche (drums) and George Shillcock (bass) - draw upon jangling guitars and anthemic choruses to forge a timeless sound which is creating a buzz around the city.
Having established an effortless brand of live energy, Pondarosa have gone on to play to sellout crowds across Manchester in support of other hotly tipped bands like Lynchs, Jekyll and We Are Parkas - most recently delivering a highly praised set for This Feeling at Jimmy’s. A festival debut at Sheffield’s Tramlines Fringe also helped to strengthen the band’s already solid links in Yorkshire.
March 2019 saw the release of Pondarosa's debut single, Crystalline, a showcase of their penchant for wide-open choruses and dazzlingly effective guitar work - lovingly crafted at Whitewood Recording Studio in Liverpool.
