'Local lads doing not so bad return to their favourite home city venue'
Port Erin released their second album 'Wheel Inside A Wheel' in October 2012. They finished off the year touring the album - and enjoyed airplay of album tracks on BBC Introducing in the West and BBC 6 Music as well as receiving top worldwide reviews.
In 2013 the band have been mainly focusing on writing new material - their busiest year yet in terms of the amount of time they've spent hidden away in the writing room.
Port Erin have expanded on their solid core three piece set up with new member Simon Williams on saxophone. There's been lots of experimenting with writing in different ways (recording live improvised shows and arranging songs from them after/writing and arranging in the studio as they record etc.)
This is a band the simply won't be constrained by genre or style, their music speaks for itself.
Drawing on influences such as Talking Heads, XTC, Syd Arthur, Talk Talk, Cowtown and Elbow the band's relentless touring and recording is beginning to make an impact in the West Country and beyond.
The band's highlight of 2013 was heading back to Real World Studios with producer Marco Migliari to record their latest E.P. 'THREEE.' Launched at Glastonbury Festival 2013 (where they played a total of three shows) it's already been given great reviews and airplay on BBC Introducing.
The band are also going to be releasing a live album at the beginning of 2014 which will be compiled from many different recordings captured over this year.
Their show at Chapel Arts Centre, Bath, Friday 20th December will see the band joined by more musicians onstage to create their largest scaled 'show' to date. It will be live recorded too in hope that what's set to be another special night will make it on 2014's live album.

Rivers Of England
We have recently signed a distribution deal with Songs And Whispers and Cargo Records. Mainly from Bath, we're a modern folk/nu-folk collective varying in size from 2 to 7 depending on our mood/gig. We particularly love layering up lush string arrangements, beefing it all up with the Hammond/Rhodes sound, plus double bass grooves to soundtrack the subjects of the micro and macrocosm - searching for a sane perspective and trying just to sound good in the process.
We've had some interesting experiences - supporting The Fall, amusing hospital visits on tour and being told that a surgeon likes to play us while cutting people up.
'Immersive, simple but impressive music that is somehow quintessentially English, there is something quite wholesome, refined and altogether rather sweet about this music and the vocals are completely lovely. Rare but nice to find something reminiscent of Yo La Tengo and Nick Drake all at once.'
