Narrow Plains are an acoustic-Indie/Americana band based in London, consisting of Charlie Ferriday (guitar/vocals), Roger Connick (bass/back-up vocals), Edd Simpson (guitar/keys) and Stuart Connick (drums/back-up vocals).
Narrow Plains has recently signed with Spectra Music Group, the leading US independent record company, with a single and album to be released in early 2018.
The Self-Titled Album by Narrow Plains is in Pre-Release and most on the “Hush-Hush”, which has their fans nibbling at the bit in anticipation, but the forward release of the single, ”I Should’ve Known” is truly a key indicator of what’s in store. With passionate and powerful lyrics, and a down to earth sound, you would think this group was from the USA Southern and Mid-West Music Belt, and not part of the Brit Rock scene, in fact, for a UK Group to be part of the nominees at The Nashville Universe awards show is a huge feat. And well deserved.
Check for yourself what Narrow Plains has to offer in their UK vision of the “US Alt-Rock” Music Scene.
The hard driving vocals of Charlie Ferriday, fueled by the passions of band members Roger Connick, Stuart Connick and Edd Simpson make for a true A-Team, making music the way it should be done, with style.
About The Band
The band formed in early 2012 after writing and self-recording their debut EP “Somewhere In Between” at minimal cost but to some considerable critical acclaim. As one early review noted, “the passion and fury that spawns this type of intense creation is evident in both the lyrics and sound” (Kei Hendrix, Bandmark). After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from the EP, the band decided to gig at any and every location available to them in and around their native London. They have performed at prestigious venues such as the 02 Academy Islington, 100 Club, Barfly, and Cavern Club in Liverpool and an increasing number of festivals. They have also played gigs in the USA.
The band released another self-produced, original double A single, “So Rewind”/ “Keep You Anyway in 2014 which gained them considerable praise, including being picked by BBC Introducing South as their “track of the day”.
The band has numerous awards. In 2016, they were nominated in the UMAs (Unsigned Music Awards) in the folk/country category. In 2015, the band won the Hard Rock Rising competition at The Hard Rock Café in London. They have received international acclaim and were winning finalists in the 2014 Canadian “Live In Your City” contest of Uprise.FM. They were also selected as Judges Pick by a prestigious panel of music experts in the USA-based Bands4Good online talent contest, winning a recording retreat with the legendary John Davenport in his North Carolina studio. The band used their time with John to record a live version of their song, “Choices” that propelled them to top of the Reverbnation indie charts.
