Danny George Wilson (solo)
Danny & The Champions of the World is a Folk Rock, Rock, Soul band that was formed in London during the summer of 2007 by Danny George Wilson.
The band was formed following the dissolution of Grand Drive in which Danny performed with his brother Julian Wilson. They recorded originally as an impromptu demo session at a farm within the grounds of the Truck Festival. The demo and overall success of the recorded sound prompted Danny to form Danny & the Champions of the World and record their first self-titled album on Loose Music in 2008.
Critics and fans noted a distinct departure from the music of Grand Drive; instead making references to a more Alt Country sound.Danny & The Champions of the World recorded their second album 'Streets of Our Time' in 2010. Danny & The Champions of the World recorded the album whilst on tour with The Magic Numbers and The Drive By Truckers'. Streets of Our Time was met with much critical acclaim and marked an end to Wilson's folk infused leanings.
In February 2011 Danny George Wilson signed a worldwide publishing/ production deal with Southern Crossroads Music and went into the studio to record 'Hearts & Arrows'. The album was mixed by Ted Hutt at his King Size Studios based in Los Angeles. Danny George Wilson recorded 'Tougher Than The Rest' for a Limited Edition Bruce Springsteen tribute 7" EP for Record Store Day, alongside fellow contributors The Magic Numbers, Willie Nile and Billy Franks.
Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou
Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou returned with their new album Quality First, Last & Forever! last June on Heavenly Recordings, the follow up to their entrancing self-titled 2010 debut. Since then, they have continued to capture hearts across the nation with tours of village halls and tin tabernacles around the country. Their recent show at The Social was described by the NME as having "so much harmony here that you forget about how discordant everything else is outside the beautiful world they have built". Produced by Richard Causon with Adem and Dan Carey lending their mixing and production talents, the new record is a defiant leap forward for Trevor & Hannah-Lou, who have penned a modern folk-pop masterpiece.
