Over the last 10 years, Keston Cobblers Club have been steadily building a name for themselves. Their debut album ‘One, For Words’ launched in 2012, released independently, followed by two EPs, ‘A Scene of Plenty’ and 2014’s ‘A Pocket Guide to Escaping’. Then in 2015 came ‘Wildfire’ the album which won them huge praise everywhere from BBC Legends such as Steve Lamacq, Dermot O’Leary, Edith Bowman and Bob Harris, MOJO Magazine, The Guardian, The Independent and The Financial Times to Songlines, fRoots and Clash as well as a Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 6. Their last two albums, ‘Almost Home’ and ‘Siren’, further increased their following, with great industry praise from such as Zoe Ball and Lauren Laverne, supported by multiple European headline tours and crescendoing with a 10 year anniversary SOLD OUT tour. “We can’t believe it’s been ten years” says Tom, “we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved. Cobblers was originally formed for fun amongst good friends, so when it took off and we began performing full time in 2013, it rather took us by surprise. We’ve now had some time to really reflect on this period and are so grateful for the experiences and opportunities we’ve had so far. This album is the next chapter.”

Their live shows are displays of genuine warmth and dazzling musicianship, honed over years of playing some of the UK’s biggest festivals, includingGlastonbury, Bestival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness and Green Man; they even run their own festival – Camp Wildfire. Burberry asked the band to perform at their Menswear SS2016 event to a VIP audience and, after a triumphant UK and European tour in 2015/16, including sell-out dates at London’s Scala and Union Chapel, the band were invited to open for folk royalty Bellowhead on their farewell tour in 2015, as well as for pop legends Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot on their entire UK arena tour in 2021.

All focus is now on Alchemy, which will be supported by a UK tour, kicking off in Nottingham on the 21st April. There’s also another European tour in the works, and a busy summer of festivals.
