Sheffield songwriting collective BUFFALO SKINNERS, influenced by 60’s rock n roll, folk, blues and “whatever else we’ve been listening to recently”, are Kieran Thorpe (Fender Rhodes), James Nicholls (violin), Peter Seccombe (guitar), Miles Stapleton (drums) and Robbie Thompson (bass); sharing a passion for songwriting and singing in harmony.
Over the past six years the boys have shared highs and lows, personal space, and an ex-postal van across England, America and France.
Most importantly they have shared their songs, with anyone willing to listen. Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Janice Long and Dermot O’Leary have all played tracks from the first two albums on BBC radio.
Subsequently endless festival appearances followed including Glastonbury, Kendal Calling, BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Deer Shed, Tramlines, Camp Bestival…
July 15 sees the release of third album ‘Cease Your Dreaming’ (Loose Chat Records) produced by critically-acclaimed Mercury Award nominee Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley, Slow Club, Kylie Minogue).
HOLY MOLY & THE CRACKERS, a young gypsy folk-rock band, (“Punky, fiddle-flying, Cajun-dancing, raucous hoedownS with huge energy” – Supajam) have already drawn in the accolades and crowds at Hop Farm Festival (Dylan, Patti Smith, Ray Davis) and had debut album (First Avenue) tracks featured in Maverick, No Depression and played by Mike Harding as well by Amazing and BBC Intro. Check out A PUNK CALLED PETER!
