Finn Richards and Max Morrow met at school in Warrington, forming their first real band in 2015. The boys performed under various pseudonyms until 2020, when they settled on the name The Raymonds.  As the band started to look to perform more regularly, they needed a more a permanent bass player and Evan O'Toole joined in early 2021, With the band now successfully playing across the North West, a final line up change mid-way through 2023 saw the addition of Alex Waterhouse on drums.


The Raymonds released their first single ‘Nights with you’ in July 2022. The band were then invited to record and produce at the world-famous Motor House Studios Liverpool for their second single ‘Follow your nose’, which saw its release in January 2023 and track three “You online?” which is due for launch later in 2023. With a plethora of tracks already written and featuring as part of their live sets, 2024 looks bright for the they continue to write, produce and perform at ever more prestigious venues and alongside more established artists.


The Raymonds were voted ‘Rising Act of 2022’ by 5,000+ members of the public at the North Wests WAM Music awards and reached the final three alongside The Crawlers in the category of ‘Song of the Year 2022’ narrowly missing out to eventual winners The K’s with their single ‘Hometown’.


There’s a feeling of mania, like the type ‘The Monkeys’ used to bring…of screaming crowds and hysteria type energies’.

Quirky but with a crispness, catchy hooks, spidery riffs, clever beats. There’s real direction…think ‘Vampire Weekend’ meets ‘The Snuts’. New Sound Generation Magazine


The Raymonds have played sel out headline dates across some of the North West’s most iconic larger and more intimate city centre music venues, as well as being booked onto the region’s festival scene. This has included supporting slots at Manchester’s Club Academy for The Zangwills and NatureTV at Manchester’s Castle Hotel to name but a few.. The band also recently played and interviewed live on the popular music television station Scruff of the NeckTV


‘Definitely go see this band live! Excellent set, as ever. A joy to listen to – that’s what this whole sound is…joyful’.

A real late 60s, early 70s feel to the performance – very retro and the energy of an early 90s ‘Kula Shaker’, too. The sound is very polished, very well crafted and very well executed.
