The Black Country Blokes consists of 4 regular guys, speaking about all issues related to being a man in today's society.
It is not just designed to focus on men's mental health and well-being, as it will also allow our mothers, sisters, daughters and female peers to understand us better. We are dedicated to keeping this 100% authentic and raw. We are not polished, perfect individuals and our views remain our own, but what we do want to do is, is remove the stigma and speak about the taboo subjects openly and honestly.
Furthermore, they want to empower people to be happy and fulfilled and to overcome their thoughts that could limit their potential in life.
The group consists of the following guys:
Kev Dillon, a head coach at the Lions Amateur Boxing club. Someone who has been boxing since the age of 3, but sadly lost his eyesight at a very young age leaving him with only 7% vision in his right eye. This is known as 3/60 vision. He has been a poster child for adversity, dealing with anxiety and depression for a lot of his life. However, he has never folded or let his circumstances stop him pursuing his goals. He is now a proud father, husband and respected coach helping 100s of boys, girls, men and women of all ages. Furthermore, Kev's vision of the BCB podcast was to have a show exposing all the struggles and the victories that men go through, to let those listening know that they are not alone.

Aren Deu is a proud husband who hosts the sister podcast Find Your Voice, an empowering self-help podcast, providing listeners with the tools to overcome their current, or past, circumstances and control their lives. This initially came about due to Aren struggling for over 20+ years with anxiety, causing him to miss opportunities, experiences and just suffered in silence. A similar vision to Kev and the other two hosts, Aren's focus is on making people find their happiness and fulfilment amid a fast-paced, social media-driven society. An ex-social worker, project manager, personal trainer and now successful property investor Aren's passions find in inspiring people to overcome their adversities and recognise that the only limits we hold are in our mind.

Lee Cadman is a father to Lilly-May, Alfie and Calla-Rose. Calla-Rose has a life-limiting disability, and since her diagnosis, Lee's life has never been the same. He is a proud husband and considers himself your everyday working man with the hopes of improving the lives of his own family and others. Sadly depression and anxiety have taken its toll on Lee, on many occasions, but he has found real power and resolve in talking. Talking has become Lee's medicine, and he always states that we should remember in our darkest moments you are not being buried you are being planted.
Craig Pinches is a writer, producer, performer and label owner. His background is rap, but if you explore the projects he’s been involved with, and you quickly realise you can’t do justice to his versatility by merely calling him a rapper. He has a passion for music and expression through the written and spoken word that projects through his performances. His music is not only a passion but a vehicle that enables him to help people in need through either positive lyrics or by broadcasting areas of concern within humanity.
