Bio

Narrow Plains are a unsigned, three piece, acoustic-based,folk/rock band based in London, consisting of Charlie Ferriday (guitar/vocals), Stuart Connick (drums/back-up vocals) and Roger Connick (bass/back-up vocals). Their sound has been described as powerful heartfelt vocals and original acoustic riffs supported by a highly unconventional and simplistic,percussion set-up (with the cajon featuring instead of a bass drum) and mellow, fluent bass.
They all went to the same school in Caterham (Surrey, UK). However, they played in different rock and punk bands at that stage. Charlie performed while at university as a singer/songwriter. Charlie and Stuart also played together occasionally as a two-piece, acoustic band. Roger joined in February 2012 and the band decided to focus solely on original, acoustic-based material. They self produced their debut EP, called "Somewhere in Between" and have also self produced a number of videos of their songs since. All of these have been released straight to YouTube and they are gaining a fast growing on-line following.
They all believe passionately in live music. Over the last eighteen months or so, they have regularly performed at diverse gigs, mostly in London at a number of prestigious venues such as the 02 Academy2 Islington, 100 Club, Proud Camden, Barfly and even a one-off gig at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.
They have written and performed a large number of new songs since the release of the EP and they are aiming to have completed recording of their debut album by early 2014.
