New Old World Short Info

BIO
New Old World are an upcoming Folk-Rock band based in Kent, making rapid progress and a dominant name for themselves in the local music scene as a band ‘going to go far’. The band originally consists of the five multi-instrumentalists, however they are occasionally joined by a brass section also. So far as well as beginning to establish a fan base in their local areas, New Old World have performed at numerous venues –both headlining and supporting- pubs, festivals and radio stations. In 2014 they performed on a Glastonbury Stage at a concert in Rochester Castle Gardens to a couple of thousand people, were recorded (under their old band name) on the largest YouTube channel in SE England for upcoming musicians, had reg-ular publicity in local media and online, toured across South England with a wide range of support acts including Sasha McVeigh, Gentlemen of Few & Dan Clews, have been played several times on BBC Radio (including a live performance and interview) and also performed at local music events alongside Jamie Johnson (from TV’s ‘The Voice’). Not only that, but they released their debut EP: ‘Live Fast, Make it Last’ in December and is already selling well. They are touring the EP in the summer of 2015, backed by their promoter manager Marc Carey, signed booking agency, personal sound engineer Keith Nickson from Audio Live De-sign and their growing and loyal fan-base, before heading back into the studio to record and release their full album signed to a record label in 2016.
