INTRODUCING THE BAND
THE STORY SO FAR
Outlander is a Pop-Country band hailing from the North East of England, and are one of the bands leading the new wave of Country Music in England. Forming in 2015, the band has become one of the most anticipated and talked about acts.
The four guys started their musical and creative relationship 4 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2015 that their musical journey truly started when they formed Outlander. In Outlander, the guys wanted to make country music that was fun and easily accessible, for both the old-school country fans, as well as those into the new wave of country music. Taking cues from American acts such as Sam Hunt, Hunter Hayes, Old Dominion, and Brett Eldredge, the band blends Pop and Rock hooks with Country instrumentation. Within the first eight months, the band was recognised by the British CMA for their work and were awarded the coveted title of Horizon Act of the Year 2015, previously won by The Shires the year before.
Outlander is no stranger to playing large events having kicked off 2016 by playing two dates at the Country to Country (C2C) Music Festival at the O2 Arena, London. In June, the band had the pleasure of supporting Simply Red at The Emirates International Stadium in County Durham and performed at the brand new Buckle & Boots Festival in Stockport, alongside American artist Phil Vassar and UK duo Ward Thomas. The rest of the year saw the band perform at some of the North East’s largest events, including The Tall Ships Regatta in Blyth (Northumberland’s biggest event).
This year the band are taking their music to a much wider audience with a number of festivals lined up around the UK, including a slot at Weyfest alongside world renowned acts such as Jools Holland & His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, Alison Moyet and the Buzzcocks. Outlander will also be closing this year's British CMA Awards in October.
The band's latest single 'Old School' was written, recorded and produced entirely by the band. Award-winning DJ Brian Clough (CMA's Broadcaster of the Year 2009) hailed it as "an absolutely belter of a song... the best of British contemporary country music".
The band would also like to welcome Lowri Dowell, who has joined Outlander on the drums.
