Woodburner is proud to present:
THE MEDLARS Album LAUNCH
The Medlars are a seven piece contemporary folk band based in London. Their music is raw and rhythmically driven with orchestral and psychedelic undertones, layering melodies and harmonies to illuminate their political and socially conscious messages.
They formed after meeting at university in 2016 through Jimmy Grayburn, who at the time was performing as a solo artist. His lyrics tackle issues around environmentalism, homelessness and austerity cuts and are accompanied by the Medlars’ unique and frank sound. The band’s influences include Johnny Flynn, Nic Jones, Chris Wood and Cocos Lovers.
We are excited to present the launch of their highly anticipated debut record, which is released through Pear O’Legs Records having been recorded at the acclaimed Soup Studios. Expect the full 7-piece band in attendance with all the vibes.
APPLE OF MY EYE
Apple of my Eye are the uproarious troubadours of London's modern folk scene. Their music blends traditional English folk with modern songwriting, using vocal harmonies and traditional instruments. They play regularly around London are fast becoming regular highlights of the folk festivals including Secret Garden, Wilderness and headline slots at Stainsby and Exilefestivals. Their new album The Beast Below was released on 19 September 2016.
