Back to the Point is an English Pop Punk/Punk Rock band from Ipswich, UK that formed in 2008. The band consists of lead vocalist and bassist Sam Trenter, guitarist and backing vocalist Lewis Whymark and drummer Nathan Garwood.

Starting at the young age of eleven, the band were always keen to get to work on their own material. This led to the completion their first song, ‘Number’ back in 2009 when the three school-boys were only twelve.

Influenced by such artists as the Ramones, the Clash, Blink-182 and Green Day, Back to the Point were inspired to bring the same energy and boldness to their own tracks, and it wasn’t long before the band started churning out songs by the dozen. This led to the band working with recording engineer Craig Shimmon to record a live 3-track EP in the autumn of 2011, which was titled after the main track ‘You’re Home’.

Playing on the bill for such concerts and festivals as Ipswich Music Day for the last three years, Martlesham Music on the Green, Jam at the New Wolsey Studio and Alive and V-Dubbin, Back to the Point have gained quite a name for themselves in and around Ipswich. They’ve featured on interviews, radio performances and air-play for such local stations as ICR, IO Radio and EAR Podcasts.

The band have been known many accomplishments, one of which being when they were crowned winners of the Suffolk One Battle of the Bands competition, with a unanimous decision from the judges.

During the band's sixth year, we saw the release of their second EP, recorded by Ian Crow at Amblin Man Studio’s in Otley. "We really looked forward to getting this one out there" said lead vocalist Sam Trenter. "We've learnt so much during our time in the studio and the tracks on this C.D are the proof!". The EP, 'Break the Rules' is available now.

In May 2014, Back to the Point entered the Rock the House band competition with their track 'Runaway', and were put forward for the finals by their local MP Daniel Poulter. They then went on to be in the final ten bands, and performed at the Bedford in London to industry judges as part of the final, marking the furthest distance from Ipswich they've been asked to perform to date.

During the summer of 2015, Back to the Point recorded their homemade album, Homespun, featuring popular tracks such as House in Rome, Let Her Go and Do You Remember. The finished album is avaliable to listen to on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Music.
