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.

IN WRITE, HAPPYNESS, ALBUM, REVIEW
IT’S been three-years since alternative outfit Happyness became our favourite dejected youngsters with 2014’s ‘Weird Little Sister’, and now as the Londoners return with ‘In Write’ the adolescent euphoria has become mature beauty.
