“Morganway deliver beautiful harmonies that bring alt-country right to the forefront of the americana and country scene.” – Maverick Magazine
Morganway’s fiery brand of alt-country is all driving riffs, charismatic five-part harmonies, emotional songwriting and compelling live performances. Straight out of North Norfolk’s rural outback, the five-piece was started by twins Callum (acoustic guitar, lead vocals) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar), and features Yve Mary B (lead vocals), Matt Brocklehurst (keyboard) and Simon Tinmouth (drums). The band’s distinctive Americana glow wears its heart on music that’s raw, melodic, sincere, full of energy and yearning for the open road. 2017 has seen Morganway release their second EP “The Hurricane” which has received rave reviews and radio play with Chris Country & BBC Introducing.
After a quick session with none other than Radio 2’s Bob Harris in the spring, the band returned to the studio to start work on there debut album set for release next year. This summer sees the band playing festivals across the UK, including Cambridge Folk Festival, Secret Garden Party and The Grand Prix at Silverstone. So what better way to finish off the summer, than a hometown show at one of Norwich’s top venues, that will showcase the band’s best live performance to date … Definitely one not to be missed.
Combining roots Americana, retro infused Indie and Folk, Hot Raisin will transport you to a place of dreamy melodies and arrangements that are good for the soul. The five piece band from the East Coast of the UK originally formed as an acoustic duo in 2009 by it’s founding members and childhood friends Tory Cobb (Lead Vocals & Acoustic Guitar) and Mary Podd (Lead Guitar). Playing at venues and festivals in the UK and overseas, the duo are always exploring and trying to find new ways to expand their sound. In 2016 a chance presented itself in the form of Norwich based friends Luke Fox (Guitar), Tom Harvey (Bass) and Daryl Blyth (Drums). With the guys already massive fans of the girls’ work (and vice versa) they were soon performing as a 5 piece playing venues, bars and festivals in the UK. 2017 saw the band enter the studio to record their first full band E.P. The much anticipated four track E.P entitled “Whiskey Ginger” is the perfect introduction to the band showcasing their laid back vibes and upbeat charm.
