Formed in County Down, Northern Ireland by brothers Ken (vocals/guitar) and Carl Papenfus (drums) and Darren Campbell (bass), Relish have released two highly regarded albums to date working with such acclaimed producers as John Leckie (Radiohead/The Stone Roses) and Al Clay (Stereophonics).
Championed by the likes of Paul Weller, U2’s Larry Mullen, Queen guitarist Brian May and Radio 1 and 2, Relish once again hit the ground running with their most recent singles ‘Something To Believe In’ and ‘Connected’ the former staying in the top 40 of the Irish airplay charts for 8 weeks whilst Connected gained UK exposure with an A listing on London's Total Rock Radio and live sessions on BBC London and Kerrang Radio. Both tracks were A-listed on all major stations in their home of N Ireland.

"Connected is rock n roll for the masses make no mistake about that, because every song could be a single… " – Music Review (2011)
