Led by siblings Helen and Joe Hammill, Teesside’s Cattle & Cane are capable of shifting even the hardest of hearts with their perfect soaring harmonies. After spending 2017 sharing stages with the likes of Tom Odell, Brian Wilson and The Head & The Heart, not to mention performing countless sold-out headline dates across the UK, Cattle & Cane have been making quite a name for themselves with their magical live shows. Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and mastered by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, New Order) at Abbey Road Studios in London, sophomore album ‘Mirrors’ (May 2017) effortlessly showcased Cattle & Cane’s stunning song-writing and saw the band nominated in three categories in the 2018 Unsigned Music Awards at The Great Escape in Brighton. The album also hit the top 20 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart thanks, in part, to a successful PledgeMusic campaign which reached an impressive 280% of its original target. Elton John declared his love for ‘Mirrors’ opener ‘Love On Your Hands‘ on Beats 1 and ‘7 Hours’ picked up numerous radio-plays from long time fan Dermot O’Leary, who previously showcased the band on his ‘Saturday Sessions’ compilation following a live session on BBC Radio 2. Additional airplay came from the likes of Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Gary Crowley on BBC London and John Kennedy on Radio X, to name but a few. Over on Spotify, ‘7 Hours’ passed the 1 million streams milestone in less than 6 months and ‘Love On Your Hands’ featured on the prestigious New Music Friday UK playlist. Meanwhile, ‘Fool For You’ earned the band a live session on Vintage TV and was added to the BT TV music playlist, as well as featuring on Sunday Brunch, Made In Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex.
