Its clear to see why these guys are in such high demand
As we begin to look towards the upcoming Summer, my attention is drawn towards a popular act “Priddice Brothers Band”. They are a Somerset based band who are trying to highlight the stigma of men’s mental health through the power of music, which is a really great thing to do! Music is often described as the greatest healer, and as we’ve seen over the course of history, is also something that brings people from all walks of life together.
Quick backstory about Craig & Alex from the band:
Craig and Alex Priddice are a well established act on the local scene having played most of the local venues. Career highlights include performing at Glastonbury Festival many times and GODNEY Gathering 2016. They have performed at the prestigious venues 'Cheese and Grain',' Louisiana', 'Fleece', 'Ashton Gate' and at 'The Thekla'. They have played for Michael Eavis and have supported Toploader, John Bramwell (I am Kloot), Beans On Toast, Lonely Tourist, Gaz Brookfield and Nick Parker to sell out crowds. They are regular support for many tribute bands including Oas-is, BLURD and Ultimate Coldplay.
As you can see, there’s a real music pedigree here. A high demand act who have recorded their latest E.P “All Will Be Revealed” in none other than Abbey Road Studios. That’s not something that’s easy to do, only prestigious artists get that opportunity. Fair play guys!
Their latest release “Son Of The Sea” is a really indie and upbeat acoustic number. It’s got a bit of everything really. It’s not a heavy song that makes you want to go crazy and dance, it’s more of a chilled out, toe tapping, swaying in a festival tent kind of vibe. It’s something different to what I usually listen to, but it’s an easy to listen to song, and one that you can welcome with open arms. I think this is the reason why these guys have had the success that they’ve enjoyed. Not everything has to be a big sing along hit to be successful.
I did also have a listen to one of songs by Craig & Alex Priddice, called Stones. Which again was a similar kind of song. As I’ve said, you don’t need a massive singalong chorus with lots of production to make a good and meaningful song.
I think the guys are great, their message and what they stand for is wonderful, and to top it off, they’ve got some really great songs that are meaningful and relatable. Just what you want from an artist.
Keep up the good work chaps
