An up-and-coming teenage trio are taking the local music scene by storm, snapping up a record deal and receiving attention from the BBC just five months after forming.

Singer and guitarist Kieran Campbell, 18, bassist Oliver Blackwell, 15, and drummer Michael Davies, 16, are all from the Louth and Horncastle area, and they are together known 
as The Theory.

The punk band, inspired by artists such as Green Day, 
The Clash and Slipknot, are already half way through writing their debut 
album - due for release next spring - and a big tour is already in the pipeline for 
next August.

Michael has only been in the band for a month, replacing the previous drummer, but the trio immediately gelled and have been going from 
strength to strength.

The band have recently been snapped up by record label The Cheeky Seal and they also received an email saying that the BBC Introducing 
team had listened to one of 
their tracks - heightening the possibility that their music could soon be hitting 
the airwaves.

Kieran, who works at a local care home, told the Leader: “We hope to play a gig in Louth as part of our tour next 
August, and we also hope to perform in places such as Sheffield and Manchester.

“We’ll do a few acoustic 
gigs soon too, later this year.”

Any local acoustic bands who are interested in supporting The Theory at their upcoming gigs can contact the band at kierancampbell007@hotmail.co.uk.

Kieran is also running a side project called ‘Criminal With Protection of the Law’, an upcoming acoustic compilation album. Contact him if you have a recorded track that you wish to be considered for inclusion.
