London’s Most Electrifying Groove Rock Duo
The Purple Lights fuse authentic roots reggae beats into psychedelic gritty grooves, combining a powerful message, delivered in a bright package.
Rob and Akeba form the Purple Lights, a duo with a difference. Rob Fincham a Suffolk boy, grew up on a diet of Johnny Cash, AC/DC & Black Sabbath, before starting his musical career as a singer songwriter.
Akeba Fridye, an East end Londoner is of different stock. Immersed in reggae music from an early age, he also takes influence from the streets of Hackney, witnessing the rise of grime music and taking inspiration from the DIY ethic.
Their juxtaposition of complimentary but unlikely blends gives the Purple Lights a truly unique sound. Incorporating pedals, loops, synths, voice effects and above all their talent, charisma and energy that has given them a strong reputation among London’s music scene.
