A unique blend of British and American Blues Rock. A hard-hitting, energetic Blues band from Kent, UK.
Formed in late 2013, long-term friends Lauren, Rob and Ben brought to bear the foundations for Flawless Carbon. Joined by Rich and Dan shortly after, the Flawless Carbon sound quickly took shape.

Variety is the spice of life, and FC have it in abundance. Blues, Folk, R'n'B and Pop play a large part in the background of FC's sound and history. Fused with influences from John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, Maroon 5 and Black Stone Cherry, FC's unique take on British Blues Rock has them standing out of the crowd.

Currently working the local circuit around the South East of England, Flawless Carbon are quickly gathering attention from the UK Music industry. Their first EP is expected in late Summer 2014, with tours lining up for early 2015.

Power, Passion and Performance. You'll want to see them live.
