A very special show tonight as Cornwall Sound Lounge bids farewell to RSAB after 12 years of having the privilege of hanging out with, promoting and supporting local bands and musicians of all genres. Some of those locals have gone on to tour with or support household names at the highest level, many have been picked up by BBC 6 Music and Radios 1 & 2, but we are proud to have brought them to you first! Wire Daisies, The Sea, Kezia are all names from way back, most recently King Creature,The Rezner, The Velvet Hands, Blue River,Sam Richardson and many more have all received our support before the big stations picked them up. This passsion for the local scene will not end as Sheila V continues to promote and support the local music scene and our fabulous venues on social media - Twitter @SheilaVanloo and Facebook 'Vanloo's Reviews'. Tonight we celebrate 12 years with not one, but two top Cornish bands in the room (it could get messy!)
Always a treat to welcome Blue River to the Lounge. The guys stormed through 2019 picking up fans of all stripes, including Huw Stephens, Janice Long and Tom Robinson, but you heard them on Cornwall Sound Lounge first! With another new single about to break our surf punk rockers have their sights on an even busier 2020.
Award winning Hanterhir make a very welcome return to the Lounge tonight, their epic last album The Saving of Cadan received great reviews and they've been busy working on a new album. Tonight they have news of their participation in Record Store Day 2020 which is this weekend! To celebrate RSD this multi talented band are releasing covers of songs by David Bowie and Sonic Youth and you can hear both tracks tonight.
