The Line Up
The Heavy North –
Five-piece garage/blues rock band The Heavy North released debut singles ‘Don’t You Wait For Me’ and ‘The Night Don’t Give No Love’ in November 2018 followed by live shows in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Blackpool.
The band’s third single ‘Some Good Lovin’ was released in June 2019 ahead of a festival debut at the Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) and a live session and interview on BBC Introducing Merseyside.
Following a sold-out headline show at Jimmy’s Liverpool in September 2019, The Heavy North released their fourth single ‘As Long As You’re Here With Me’ in December 2019 and played a handful of shows supporting Temples, Saint Agnes and Cut Glass Kings on UK tour dates prior to the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.
In support of the ‘Lying To Yourself’ release, the band played an exclusive lockdown session for BBC Radio Wales with Janice Long and were also recognised as the most-watched artist at the first ever Liverpool Digital Music Festival streamed online in May 2020.
On Friday 4th September 2020 the band released ‘Bring Me Love’ – the follow-up single to ‘Lying To Yourself’ – and announced that both singles would feature on The Heavy North’s debut vinyl EP ‘Dive Bar Blues’ scheduled for release on Friday 4th December 2020 and available on limited edition, hand-numbered 12” vinyl (300 copies).
The Heavy North returned in April 2021 with the release of their first single from their debut album, ‘Darkness In Your Eyes’.
Hushtones’ take on pop music has been described as punchy and powerful with nods to Fleetwood Mac and Sunflower Bean, nostalgic feels, soaring melodies and a smooth blend of female and male voices.
Martha Goddard and Mick Campbell met years ago when they were both treading the murky waters of the Liverpool hospitality scene. Mick in the kitchen and Martha waitressing. The pair began writing songs together and Mick enlisted the help of old school friend Caitlin McPaul to join in on bass and backing vocals.
They started playing in their local bar where they discovered the bar’s manager Abe Tesfachristos was a skilled drummer who had fallen out of the game – Abe joined the party. Finally Joe Dillon jumped in on guitar and backing vocals and things started to take shape.
