New Delhi Freight Train

New Delhi Freight Train are a Country/Rock band who are blowing away everyone who see's them, their current set includes classic Country/Rock tracks from the likes of steve Earle (the band have even been known to throw in some early Presley classics, done in the bands own powerful style, of course!) to brilliant original material penned by the bands chief songwriters Ben Smith and Jim Batty and also original material by bassist Gerry Riley.

The band are brilliant in a live situation and recently had a UK newspaper hail them as possibly the next big Country/Rock supergroup, strong words...indeed.

The band recorded a bunch of songsin with engineer Ashley Hannes (pictured below/left) for their first full album release, New Delhi Freight Train have previously released a highly acclaimed album, it was before the full line-up was completed and included all acoustic songs performed by Singer Ben and Guitarist Jim.

The 1st album was released at the end of 2000.

The band have also recorded a live album @ The Robin in Brierley Hill, west midlands but the album sadly has yet to see the light of day.
