The Robbie Boyd Band are a talented group of people consisting of Robbie Boyd, Adam Fletcher, Mared Evans, Mike Newman, Huw Beynon, Simon Fitzpatrick, and Russel Smith. I previously witnessed this group perform a short set as part of The Station Sessions last year.
They have achieved a lot in their first year, having supported the Kooks at Harvest at Jimmy’s Festival in front of 3,000 people, Johnny Flynn at Get Loaded in the Park and the Delays at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. They have already played gigs in Italy, France, Austria and soon to be in Germany.
BBC Radio 2 have shown strong support for Robbie’s songs, including the highly acclaimed “Oh Alaska”, which has also made the final of the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville. The band recently performed a live session for Jo Good’s Late Show on BBC London Radio.
Robbie’s charming songwriting and distinctive vocals combine with colourful arrangements and nostalgic harmonies, provided by an eclectic mix of talented musicians, to produce an exciting contemporary Folk-Pop sound. Robbie’s catchy songs will get you singing along to their irresistible choruses and are sure to have a lasting effect on you.
Promising energetic and uplifting live performances, The Robbie Boyd Band are generating plenty of buzz around their hometown London circuit and far beyond, with 7,000+ Facebook fans and 350,000+ views on their Youtube channel.
23rd April sees the release of the debut single I Won’t Let You Go on the Tawny Owl Records label. I must admit this is one fantastic song which is pure folk. I see them as another Mumford & Sons. The vocals/ harmonies are really tight. You can watch the video below. The debut EP Autumn’s Flown is released 4th June.
