The fresh face of rock’n’roll for the 21st Century, this Greater Manchester four piece continue to surprise and captivate with every radio-storming single and riot-inducing gig fixture.
But life it seems, is not always so linear. Shortly after their triumphant Reading & Leeds shows, the band were dealt a devastating and derailing blow as Jordan lost his father in a short-lived battle with cancer. Throughout history many a band has fallen apart over less. Yet driven with a overwhelming sense of determination, grit and love for the lost Jordan drew inspiration from the experience to create something hopeful, optimistic and as such conjured his most poignant work yet: 110 Ways To Make Things Better. A timeless and endearing tribute to Jordan’s father Kevin.
In 2017, the band hurtled through sets at major festivals such as Tramlines, Dot To Dot, Live At Leeds and Isle Of Wight; had a blast on the road with newfound touring buddies The Sherlocks including an incredible performance to a 2500 capacity crowd at Manchester Academy; bothered the airwaves once more with the unleashing of rowdy fan-favourite R.O.S.I.E (as produced by David Rahad-Jones) which tallied up plays on BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 6Music, and Radio X-Posure Playlist as well as being made Mark Richardson’s Record Of The Week on Virgin Radio ; bowled fans new and old over with a 16 date sell-out UK winter headline tour; plus, to cap it off the band were even granted the honour of illuminating the Bolton Christmas Lights.
As testament to the adversity they had faced and their stoic ability to rise above, Jordan Allen’s 110 Ways to Make Things Better was voted by the public as the #1 anthem of Virgin Radio’s Freshfest as picked from 1000’s of entries.
