"Shinedown on Counterpoint"

During our journey across Europe we have had the pleasure of sharing the stage, each night with the U.K band Counterpoint and they could not have been more gracious and finer musicians and human beings. You can expect nothing less than big things for the future. - Brent Smith (Lead Vocals Shinedown)

"Counterpoint live review"

For openers Counterpoint this is an opportunity to thrust their heavy, ballsy home grown hard rock into several hundred captive faces, and this Reading mob do just that with an ardency that suggest, in their heads at least, they're actually headlining Download." - Kerrang live review by Paul Travers - Kerrang


Recorded 3 Track EP - 2009
Recorded 5 Track EP - 2009
Recorded full length Album "Alive" - 2011




Formed in October 2008 by Lead guitarist and singer James Bartlett. Counterpoint is hard rock band with a vintage modern flavour, made popular again by the influences of Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Nickleback and other American bands. Strong vocals, soaring guitar solos, driving bass lines and pounding drums delivered with a passion and professionalism executed live as well as in the studio.

At 18 years old, James has worked continuously from a young age to reach his goals. He has written all the music & lyrics for Counterpoint, recording & producing 2 E.Ps plus their full length Debut Album & tours with a permanent band of session musicians. James is highly driven to make Counterpoint succeed, with a strong business head, and mature musical development, resulting in a fast growing range of experiences and a very busy 2009/10.

To date Counterpoint has achieved over 3.8 million hits and over 34,000 followers through their online databases in just 20 months, leading to a successful European tour in November 2009 supporting Shinedown & SOiL. Current and previous online charts have shown Counterpoint consistently in top 20 featured Rock and metal charts.
