Biography

Manchester, United Kingdom (2006 – present)

The Travelling Band is an alternative folk band that formed in Manchester, UK, in 2006. The band consists of:
Adam Gorman: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Pump Organ, Accordion, Banjo, Harmonica, Percussion, Keys
Jo Dudderidge: Vocals, Keys, Acoustic Guitar, Synth, Percussion
Steve Mullen: Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Percussion
Chris Spencer: Bass
Nick Vaal: Drums, Percussion

The Travelling Band’s shimmering blend of cosmic-country-pop, understated psychedelia, vocal harmonies and nu-folk has made them one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene - “If you consider the term Mancunian Americana to be an oxymoron try listening to the Travelling Band. Brilliant.” Marc Riley BBC 6 Music.

A recording project in New York City in 2006 led a collective of like-minded souls to record what was to become ‘Under The Pavement’, their debut studio album. Released in 2008, the record was very well received by the UK media, gaining BBC Radio 6 ‘Album of The Day’, BBC Radio 2’s ‘Single of The Week’ and a featured song in the Ian Dury biopic ‘Sex Drugs & Rock n Roll’.

While, as The Sun says, “This debut blurs the folk/rock boundaries, delicately intertwining sensitive lyrics with accomplished folk vocals and jangly instrumental accompaniments to form a tapestry of glittering whimsy”, their 10 track second album demonstrates a giant leap forward for the band.
