Biography

Formed in the West Country in January 2007 Port Erin have extensively toured the U.K. including shows at Glastonbury Festival (2010, 2011, 2013), live sessions for BBC Introducing and support slots with acts such as Red Snapper, Nick Harper, Paul Heaton (The Beautiful South) and The Redwalls (USA).

During their formative years Port Erin released The Weight Of This EP (2007), The Deads EP (2008) and the debut LP I’ll Be On The Common (2009), all of which received airplay on BBC Introducing shows across the UK and generated positive reviews. During these years the band’s constant writing and touring developed their unique sound, with no limitations on genre or style the music slowly started to pave it’s way for itself.

Their second LP, Wheel Inside A Wheel, was recorded and co-produced with Marco Migliari in The Wood Room at Real World Studios. It was released and launched on October 5th 2012 at Sound Knowledge record store, Marlborough, Wiltshire, followed by extensive UK touring. The band enjoyed airplay of album tracks on BBC Introducing In The West and BBC 6 Music as well as local and global acclaim.

In May 2013 Port Erin recorded their follow up EP Threee. It was again recorded and co-produced with Marco Migliari at Real World Studios. Threee was released and launched on Saturday 29th June 2013 at the band’s Glastonbury Festival 2013 performance at The Avalon Cafe, Field of Avalon.

2013 has seen the band record over 60 hours of improvised music. The jamming sessions have been whittled down to 17 songs which is being shaped as the backbone for their third LP. Port Erin will be touring this new material sporadically during this Autumn and Winter.
