Hello there music lovers!

Let me introduce you to Basic Needs, a band that was born out of a "basic need" to create and record music. Founded in 2016 by talented musicians Txetxu, Shane, and Juan in Spain, the band was later joined by bassist Arcadio, completing their line-up.

From the start, the band's chemistry was undeniable, with their jam sessions producing solid songs that caught the attention of audiences. With two lead singers - Txetxu and Shane - Basic Needs stood out from other local bands, and their unique sound quickly gained momentum and support from fans and the press.

The band's lead guitarist, Juan Mayor, delivers killer classic rock riffs that never fail to impress live audiences. Meanwhile, Arcadio's bass lines, influenced by his virtuoso classical guitar playing, are impeccable and add a unique flavor to the band's sound.

Basic Needs' debut EP, What If, was a major success in Spain, with the title track single making it to No. 3 on radio music charts for two weeks. This caught the attention of Midpoint Music Group, a UK record label, who quickly signed the band and booked them into the studio to record their debut album, As It Is.

As It Is was recorded in Galdar, Spain, at Jesiisma, and mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman at BernieGrundman Mastering in Hollywood, California. The result is an incredible album that showcases Basic Needs' raw talent and unique sound.

If you're a fan of great music, then As It Is is a must-listen. You can find it on all digital platforms. So what are you waiting for? Join the Basic Needs' fan club and get ready to rock!
