JOINING Mancunian favourites The Travelling Band for a special show in Winchester this month is Ryan Butterworth.

Born and raised on the coast of Bournemouth, Ryan has been making waves throughout his burgeoning career.

With a bittersweet tone that’s not too unlike fellow singer-songwriters Ben Howard and David Gray, the former Bournemouth University student is picking up a loyal following of supporters wherever he goes.

Citing inspirations to his bleak folktronica such as Radiohead, Patrick Wolf and Mike Kinsella, his sound has seen the 21-year-old earn high praise from the likes of BBC South Introducing and airplay on Forest FM.

Track ‘Oceans’ demonstrates the youthful enchantment that earned plaudits with newspapers Bournemouth Echo and Basingstoke Gazette whilst ‘Bright Eyes’, a crushing piece of melodic pop, is an anthem for the everyday man.

He will be taking to Winchester’s The Railway Inn on Friday October 21.

Headlining is The Travelling Band – the UK’s most exciting Americana outfit. Hailed by Uncut Magazine for their “sparkling harmonies and big, rolling melodies”, the five-piece have become a palpable fixture on Europe’s festival circuit – a just reward for the former winners of Glastonbury Festival New Talent Award.

Tickets for the show are £10 on the door or if you are interested in a guest-list spot that will knock the ticket price down to £8, email clive@quenchedmusic.com.

COMMON PEOPLE, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
AS THE final stragglers danced their way from the Common People main stage, the filthy sounds of favourite headliner Sean Paul still ringing around the ears, it was time for the organisers to reflect on how successful this year’s festival was. 40,000 flocked to Southampton’s Common in anticipation of yet another Bank Holiday jaunt on […]
SIMPLE MINDS, MAYFLOWER THEATRE, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
IN SIMPLE terms the word ‘acoustic’ means not having electrical amplification. But as Glaswegian new-wave act Simple Minds triumphantly demonstrated to a packed house at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre, definitions are subjective. You would be forgiven for expecting longstanding Minds members Jim Kerr, the idyllic vocalist and endearing frontman since the group first formed in 1977, […]
CARELESS PEOPLE, CHARLOTTE OC, ALBUM, RECORDED
FOR SOMETIME, Charlotte Mary O’Connor – aka Charlotte OC – has been the electro-soulstress on the cusp of brilliance. Her 2013 track ‘Colour My Heart’ remains one of the darkened pop classics that finally distanced her from the bratty pop career Sony had once dreamt she would have. And in the four-years since, critics, fans […]
AETHERLIGHT, MT WOLF, ALBUM, RECORDED
NOT SINCE Sigur Rós landed in 1997 with their maiden release ‘Von’, has a debut album created such an anthemic buzz that every shard of the body quakes in sorrow, ectascy and electricity. And within minutes of London trio Mt Wolf’s ‘Aetherlight’ the very nature of the listener’s spirituality and existence is bought to question. […]
FEEDER, GUILDHALL, SOUTHAMPTON, LIVE
FOR quarter of a century, Newport alternative rockers Feeder have adorned playlist after playlist collated by exasperated teenagers, angry at something that they don’t really understand. Their songs have continually found relevance across generations of fans with the likes of smash hit ‘Buck Rodgers’ and ‘Just the Way I’m Feeling’ firm favourites, whether it be […]
