The following bands played in 2019, bands for next year will be announced in 2020:
Ivor Novello award-winning, Brit Award-nominated band The Feeling first burst onto the scene in 2006 with their debut Top 10 UK hit ‘Sewn’. The band’s debut album, Twelve Stops And Home, followed in June 2006. It was a huge success, selling 1.5 million copies worldwide (with platinum sales of over 900,000 in Britain).
Along with ‘Sewn’, the album also included the bona fide hit singles ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Never Be Lonely’ and ‘Love It When You Call’. Accompanying airplay made them the most played act on British radio that year, receiving 97,436 spins (or 267 a day). In due course, the band won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year.
Having originally honed their skills as a covers band playing in French ski resorts, The Feeling also quickly established a reputation as a fantastic live act, something they’ve since demonstrated everywhere from Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage to the Queen’s back garden to Wembley Stadium.
In 2008 the band released their Number One second album ‘Join With Us’, which bagged them another big hit in ‘I Thought It Was Over’. Further albums followed in 2011 (Together We Were Made), 2013 (Boy Cried Wolf) and 2016 (The Feeling) all of which spawned more radio hits and further adoration from their ever-loyal fanbase.
The best live band in the UK are back!
Morganway are a six-piece from East Anglia founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Throughout their early years the boys played in various bands but struggled to find a box to fit into. Too rock for folk, too pop for indie, too indie for country, or so it seemed. Choosing to follow their instincts rather than convention, they became Morganway and suddenly people started listening.
Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matt Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting. They've built this into a live show that in one moment is classic rock and the next mystical folk, catching the attention of Whispering Bob Harris and many others in the rising British Americana scene. Their collective obsession with ‘70s West Coast rock is also met with a love of Brit Rock, folk and modern Americana.
Little Sister are a four piece band from London equipped with an eclectic arsenal of songs from ballads to hooky, anthemic, alternative pop. During summer 2019 they have released four singles all self produced by lead singer Tom Farrer and guitarist Simon Bloor in the lead up to their debut EP out soon.
