Saint Phnx Tickets
St Phnx - a real band of brothers
It's all about family for Scottish rock duo St Phnx. Brothers Stevie and Al Jukes may hate vowels - as the spelling of the band's name implies - but they clearly love their music. The pair, who hail from Wishaw on the outskirts of Glasgow, are forging their musical careers in their own unique way. You can buy or sell St Phnx tickets at StubHub.
A rousing chorus of approval from St Phnx
If big pop hooks with hip hop drums, huge guitars and rousing, memorable choruses float your musical boat, then St Phnx are the boys for you. An early version of their song King made its way onto the end credits of ITV's Europa League football final coverage. If that gives you the impression St Phnx are playing the corporate game, think again. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Jukes and drummer Al are determined to remain independent and stay true to their gritty industrial urban roots. Their home city of Glasgow is an important part of their identity- "a working-class city, like Manchester and Liverpool," Stevie said in an interview with Idol magazine. "A lot of our lyrics are for the masses. . . it's very much people-orientated music." Described as "ambitious and enigmatic", the brothers grew up playing in local bands from their early teens, before branching out on their own as a duo.

St Phnx and their musical influences
St Phnx cite a number of musical influences. Their style comes from a mix of Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Kasabian, Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors, while Coldplay and U2 are the major models for their melodies, while the drums are inspired by the likes of Kanye West. Appropriately enough, they mention Oasis and Kings of Leon as other bands that involve family members, describing their own working relationship as brothers as "cut-throat and honest". They credit Noel Gallagher when they speak of the importance of getting the crowd-pleasing chorus right and making their songs memorable. As for other influences, a lot comes from observing the outside world. Their song Reload was apparently inspired by watching televised news items about recurring wars and realising that, as a society, we just "reload" and make the same mistakes. Early in their career, they made great use of media like Spotify and YouTube to build up a following. After their live debut at Glasgow's Nice 'N' Sleazy venue, the buzz surrounding St Phnx grew.
