Wings of Pegasus
My vision, 'Wings of Pegasus' has been in full effect for roughly 5 years, and in that time we were voted '3rd best' unsigned band in the country. I've played online to 17 different countries at the same time, amassed over 100,000 twitter followers including celebrities and radio dj's, I also wrote/self produced the album. I've spent countless hours trying to get my music on radio or reviewed in mainstream media but this is where the invisible walls come in. I've realised that the fans are the most important people to impress as they pay the bills. Not a dj or music industry player. If the opportunity came around to get airplay then of course I would take it, but not at the expense of hours of wasted time when I could have been making music for those that want it.
Over the years I've been depressed at the fact that whoever I'm trying to contact never replies or 'aren't available', whether it be another band, dj or record label. So, any and every message I get, I reply to. Over the years I've written a fair few messages, and considering every new follower gets a personally typed message from me, that's over 100,000 of them right there. Feel free to follow and test this statement! :)
I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and chasing the dream for almost 15. In late 2016 I decided to bring the dream to me by setting up an account on Patreon, so now my music and everything I do is financed by my amazing fans. If I can keep spreading the word and people keep liking the music I make, my goal is to do music full time, tour the world and ultimately take over the world. Musically.
That’s Metal (To My Ears) is a rollocking anethemic shout-along fest in the style mixing a spot NWOBHM-style influences with the big sounding “hair metal” type of stuff which came along in the early 1980s. Positively modern retro. It’s punchy, powerful, loud, monster riff, melodic, catchy as anything and a killer solo all packed in to around three and a half minutes. Breathless stuff.

To be fair Persistence isn't "good", it's mighty fine, damn good. Persistence persists in being a joyous journey from inception to conception! (http://www.seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=17659)
I’d defy any rock fan not to like this album. Very infectious. Man, it’s so catchy that if Persistence could be used as fish bait those aquatic lifeforms wouldn’t stand a chance. They’d be out of the water and in to the net before the first chord of Percy Johnson was over. Humane fishing too – no hooks required other than those in the songs……..!

Wings of Pegasus blew us away with their Persistence album back in the summer. At last, here is a serious up-and-coming rock band proud of their classic rock roots. Echoes of Deep Purple and Aerosmith (when they were good) abound and there’s even a touch of theatre in the music. Wings of Pegasus pack great riffs, great melodies and an immense sense of fun into their music. There is real musicianship and songwriting skill in evidence here and they are the perfect antidote to some of the overwrought bands out there at the moment.
Wings of Pegasus are led by the multi-tasking Fil Henley who does just about everything on the Persistence album. The fine, uncluttered production is a testimony to Fil’s talents and all the more remarkable when you consider that he taught himself production techniques for the album. Check out Wings of Pegasus at their Reverbnation Page and hear one of the best new rock bands out there. (RatedSound.com)
