Biography

Formed in the autumn of 2009, Goodnight Lenin’s songs are reminiscent of the singer songwriters of the 1960s & 1970s, whilst still being relevant to the modern day listener. Inspired by Dylan, Young and Simon & Garfunkel, they constantly strive to deliver honest, experience based lyrics that flow along into their carefully crafted sound that seamlessly crosses genres.

In the beginning, Goodnight Lenin remained undiscovered until a video from a low key gig played in a friend’s kitchen surfaced online. Shortly afterwards they were booked to headline the Lunar Stage at Moseley Folk Festival where they performed immediately before another of their great inspirations - Donovan.

The aptly named ‘Kitchen Tour’ was to continue throughout the start of 2010, whilst also playing shows with First Aid Kit, Darwin Deez, The Features and opening British Sea Power’s festival ‘Sing From Ye Hillsides’ as well playing a packed out set at Bestival.

With press and word of mouth rapidly drawing attention to the band, they entered the studio to record their first single ‘Crook in the Creek’ which was released through Static Caravan Recordings in August 2010. With the single released, they were blessed enough to receive their inaugural radio play recently on Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour, BBC Radio 6 Music as well as receiving regular radio play from XFM and BBC Radio 2. They rounded of the year with a special hometown show at St Paul’s Church which, similar to their single launch, sold out well in advance.
