Meadowlark brings their folk and electronic sounds to Newcastle’s The Cluny 2 this month with their debut album, ‘Postcards.’
YouTube star, Kate McGill, and previous rock band member and director, Dan Broadley, formed Meadowlark on 22nd March 2013 and a short time later, the band released their first EP ‘Three, Six, Five’.
McGill has covered many artists on YouTube, earning over 10 million views, and has even released her own solo debut album (2010). She has had tracks played on BBC Radio 2 and has worked on writing material in Los Angeles.
The Welsh singer also beat 2,000 other competitors in 2010 to win Tesco Entertainments 1 click 2 Fame competition, winning £100,000.
Broadley also brings an incredible amount of talent to the band, having previously been in multiple rock bands. He’s also directed music videos with Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis and Mallory Knox.
Weeks after meeting in Bristol to form the band, the duo was asked to support successful recording artists Bastille on tour.
The band has gone from strength-to-strength, with their track ‘Eyes Wide’ being added to BBC Radio 1’s Introducing Playlist, XFM’s Evening Playlist and it featured in Hype Machines Top 20.
The band has played some iconic gigs since forming, including Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 Show, Glastonbury’s Introducing Stage, The Great Escape, MAMA Festival in Paris, Dot to Dot and they have appeared on episodes of both Vampire Diaries and Made In Chelsea.
Meadowlark will perform tracks from their highly-anticipated album, ‘Postcards’, at The Cluny 2, Newcastle on Friday 7th October in what is a show not to be missed. Tickets, priced at £8.00 in advance, are available from thecluny.com.
