As the drummer for early UK indie heroes, The Crocketts and The Crimea, Owen Hopkin was one of the UK's first C & C endorsers. Ten years on, and having been pulled out of retirement by Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones, he's now back behind his C & C Antique White Marine Pearl kit with Far From Saints. The group released their debut album, Far From Saints, June 16th.
The band is a collaboration between Kelly and Austin, Texas natives Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker of The Wind And The Wave.
In addition to a top ten debut album; their UK summer tour (including the Glastonbury and Latitude festivals); stadium shows with Kings of Leon; and TV & radio appearances, the schedule for 2023 and 2024 will continue with European and US headline tours.
"When you get the call, having the right equipment is as important as the ability and attitude. I'm proud to sit behind my C & C kit, proud to hear them sing on stage, and proud to be a part of the family. They're made with love, and that's how I aspire to play them."
