This dynamic band oozes talent and as yet to hit the big time, we are delighted to get them on board for this years festival during a break from their European tour. Prepare to be drawn to your feet!
Fine Lines is a six piece roots infused Americana band based in Cheshire, England. Started by singer-songwriter David Boardman in 2016, the band has been building a growing reputation with fans of authentic live music up and down the country. Their debut album ‘Hour Of Need’ received universally glowing reviews on its release in May 2017 and they have been performing to increasingly more appreciative audiences ever since. Indeed, since their inception, the band has shared a stage with folk rock giants Merry Hell, Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast, Razorlight, John Power (Cast) and Miles Hunt (Wonderstuff).
Their new album ‘Gaslight Roses’, which also includes new single ‘On the Town’, was mostly written by the emerging songwriting partnership of Boardman and Radcliffe. Boardman’s yearning melodies perfectly complimenting Radcliffe’s nuanced, observational lyrics.
‘Gaslight Roses’ is out now on Parade Recordings.
