The Pinstripe Pigeon Band

What began as a modest, yet ambitious studio project, quickly developed into a live band releasing 8 well-received EPs throughout 2015-17. Their latest material showcases intelligent pop with jazz and folk influences. Their debut album, 'As If We've Had Enough' was released in February 2018. With diligent songwriting, the lyrics lovingly articulate personal experiences while finding humour in political and social despair. Collectively, the band soak up songcraft and live influences from Fleetwood Mac, First Aid Kit, The Band, The Beatles, Ryan Adams, Motown, The E Street Band and Paul Simon.

 

The energised live show is where it really comes alive with rousing intent, hitting a resonant chord with each new audience. The band grabbed the attention of local media with BBC Introducing Lancashire showcasing a live radio session and BBC Cumbria playing a live recording of the group at Carlisle Music City. Some intensifying sets at The Ferret, 53 Degrees and Night & Day left a lasting impression in Preston and Manchester, and they smashed it at Kendal Calling's Woodland Stage with new fans, feeding from the electric and infectious atmosphere, calling it one of the festival's highlights.

 

In the Press: “Set to become the soundtrack to everyone’s summer” – Essentially Pop “The catchy melodies and vocals that can’t help but get stuck in your head” – The Examiner “Another strong release from the Pinstripe Pigeon Band, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear something by these guys making waves in the near future” – Pure M “Powerful music with angelic voices” – AXS “Add this to your list of things to obsess over. This song, is f***ing everything” - Syffal “Beautiful and heart-breaking...tight, groovy and offering something a little different...with a heap of energy and a slick delivery” -Tomatrax “...superbly soulful voices wash over like crystal clear waters on clean, golden sands” -Listen with Monger “The band has a clear talent for creating intelligent music with a spark of something different" -Gig Soup.
