LEADING LEEDS BANDS TO CATCH ASAP
With a laid-back feel and a style which drips quality from every note, this three-piece band comprising of Samuel Thornton (Vocals, Guitar and Sax), Matt Baxter (Vocals, Acoustic/Slide Guitar) and Adam Richards on Double Bass, are in a class of their own. Covering a diversity of styles from Johnny Cash, Bread, T.Rex and Ray Charles to their own compositions with a warm and easy flowing style, this is a band that needs to be on everyones “Must See” lists.
SANS CIRE (pronounced sarn-see'air) collaborated in late 2009, whilst studying in Leeds. Featuring: Angela Marie Gordon, Tom Battye, Tom Orton and Tim Bradshaw, alongside live percussion from Jack Foster the band are currently recording their first EP, due for release in early 2010. Whether their set is funky, lounge, trip-hop or jazz orientated, this exceptional band can carry it through with immense class. Definitely a band with a big future.
The band began as the songwriting project of Craig and Warren Steer, producing their debut recording "A Song for Gil" in Craig's spare room and a garage in Holmfirth. The band have continued gaining respect and a loyal following over the past few years with a sound very much of their own niche. With 3 albums under their belt and another 12-track CD planned for April this year, from such humble beginnings the band now look set to realise their potential and move onto bigger and better things in 2010.
