the album ONLY HUMAN out now

VEGA have developed into one of the best rock bands in Britain, and with ‘Only Human’ comes their strongest album to date

A stunning effort. They may be Only Human, but their music is divine

“Yet another all killer no filler album chock-full of their distinct brand of modern-tinged Melodic Rock

“Nick Workman is a quality vocalist and he brings a touch of class to their melodic rock delivery

 ‘Only Human’ is the fifth album by UK melodic rock stalwarts VEGA and was released in May 2018.  Self-produced by the group and mixed by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem), the twelve songs included on it have seen VEGA take their song writing and musicianship to the next level. Having played their own UK headlining tour to promote the album plus selected festivals over the summer months, the band kick-off 2019 with a set of dates supporting Skid Row plus two further festival slots (see itinerary above).


Nick Workman: lead vocals, backing vocals, acoustic guitar
Tom Martin: bass guitar
Marcus Thurston: lead guitar
James Martin: keyboards
Mikey Kew: guitar, backing vocals

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
