A STOURBRIDGE musician has switched scenes - ditching his heavy metal band for a more chilled out country act which he's bringing to town for a gig at the River Rooms.

Singer/guitarist Kristian Chambers, of Godsize, is now fronting new band God's Country which will be headlining an evening of country music at the Mill Race Lane venue this Friday (January 31).

Also comprising Kris's old Godsize bandmate Dan Kendrick on bass, Neil Shilvock, of GD, on drums, plus lead guitarist/vocalist Robert Sandall, of Foney Folk, God's Country formed in 2011 after meeting at The Maverick in Amblecote.

They then spent next couple of years perfecting an extensive set list of country music from the 1950s to the present day before heading out on the road for a series of shows in 2013.

Now with a maturing sound, original material on the cards and the recent addition of Foney Folk fiddle player Roy Sandall to the line-up - the band say they are looking forward to "exciting times" ahead.

The Stourbridge gig will feature support from bluegrass outfit The Troublesome Trio and Kristian, who has one last Godsize outing planned for October 19 at the River Rooms, will also be DJing country songs past and present.

He said: "If this night goes well I will look to put a regular country night on."

Admission is free before 10pm.
