We play songs. Some are ours. Some are other peoples’.
So, the official PR bit…
Hatching in 2009, DodoBones have since been attracting attention with raw and heartfelt lyrics, and seducing vocals that coarse and delicately line the pulsing and gritty sound of acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion.
The band, who’s music has been described as ‘wood rock’ (sparked by their combination of natural acoustic instruments and powerhouse performances) features Robbyn Snow on lead vocals, Stephen Patmore on guitar and spoken word, Ian Newman on double bassist and Mark Gordon on acoustic drums.
DodoBones third studio album ‘Distracted’ can be found at gigs or on iTunes / Spotify, they’ve just released a covers album ‘Aversion’ which can be bought at gigs, and they are currently recording their fourth originals album, to be released in 2018.

Proud of Hemel Hempstead’s Music & Arts: The band also host their own nights in their home town, and are pioneering the recent push in their borough, to revitalise the currently unloved music and arts scene, for which they are receiving support from websites, local shops, venues, event organiser, radio stations and, most importantly, the local artists and punters.
Charites: Regularly play charity events for local organisations such as Rennie Grove, including a 12 hour Gig-a-Thon, which raised almost £2,000 for Save the Children, and in 2013, released a Christmas single with local band, The Caution Horses, raising money for Shelter.
