Captain Accident is a reggae / ska / soul artist from Cardiff, Wales. With 2 self-produced albums, several UK & European tours, major support slots and many high-profile festival appearances, Captain Accident is becoming harder and harder to ignore.
In early 2009, Captain Accident was converted from a bedroom project to a live act, much to the delight of Cardiff’s unsuspecting open mic nights and local gigs. He quickly recruited some of the city’s most talented Musicians and formed the ultimate backing band – “The Disasters”.
In July 2010, Captain Accident released his debut album ‘Pick up the Microphone’ through Trench Foot Records. The album was entirely self-produced over a period of six months, and received great reviews from all over the country, as well as regular airplay from various high profile DJs, including reggae legend, David Rodigan!
Having reached a much wider audience in 2012, through intensive touring of the UK and Europe, as well as featuring on Jaya The Cat’s most recent album “The New International Sound of Hedonism” alongside Itch Fox, formerly of The King Blues, Captain Accident’s eagerly anticipated second album "Slippin Up" was self-produced and self-released in July 2013. The release of this album helped to further broaden the awareness of the project throughout the UK and even further afield, evidenced in a number successful UK & European Tours, a continually growing fanbase, increased national & international airplay and a nomination as "one to watch" at the official European Urban Music Awards 2013.
Since then, Captain Accident has been touring relentlessly around the UK and Mainland Europe, writing and recording for various upcoming releases in the pipeline. Captain Accident & The Disasters have been lucky enough to share a stage with such artists as Toots & The Maytals, Less Than Jake, Aswad, The Skints, Prince Fatty & Horseman, Pama International, Mad Professor, Bad Manners, The Toasters, Sonic Boom Six, Neville Staple, Fishbone, The Wurzels, and countless others. Since their emergence on the reggae scene, they have become a staple part of the UK festival circuit, having appeared at Glastonbury Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair as well as several others.
