Over the last 10 years, Keston Cobblers Club have been steadily building a name for themselves. Their debut album One, For Words launched in 2012, released independently, followed by two EPs, A Scene of Plenty and 2014’s A Pocket Guide to Escaping. Then in 2015 came Wildfire the album which won them huge praise everywhere from BBC Legends such as Steve Lamacq, Dermot O’Leary, Edith Bowman and Bob Harris, MOJO Magazine, The Guardian, The Independent and The Financial Times to Songlines, fRoots and Clash as well as a Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 6. Their last two albums, Almost Home and Siren, further increased their following, with great industry praise from such as Zoe Ball and Lauren Laverne, supported by multiple European headline tours and crescendoing with a 10 year anniversary SOLD OUT tour, including London’s Islington Assembly Hall.
Their live shows are displays of genuine warmth and dazzling musicianship, honed over years of playing some of the UK’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Bestival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness and Green Man; they even ran their own festival to launch an album – Camp Wildfire. Burberry asked the band to perform at their Menswear SS2016 event to a VIP audience and, after a triumphant UK and European tour in 2015/16, including sell-out dates at London’s Scala and Union Chapel, the band were invited to open for folk royalty Bellowhead on their farewell tour in 2015, as well as for pop legends Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot on their entire UK arena tour in 2021.
Their new album, Alchemy, is released 22nd April 2022.
