We are very excited to announce we have been asked back to GREENBELT FESTIVAL. We will be playing on the Saturday afternoon in the Performance Cafe. It is a very exciting festival with some amazing people playing! The festival happens from August 23rd to the 26th and is held at Cheltenham Racecourse.
We are very excited to share with you the special track we have recorded with Jess Morgan. This special live version of the Huey Lewis and the News classic song ‘The Power of Love’ is released to celebrate Record Store Day 2013. The song originally comes from the Back the Future soundtrack, a film that we and Jess list as one of our favourites. The song was arranged and recorded (along with much tea drinking!) during few creative hours in Rachel’s lounge one Saturday afternoon a couple of weeks ago. You can download the song for FREE by popping your email address in the box and clicking submit. Please share it!

We are pleased to announce that on Friday 3rd May we are going to be supporting POLLY PAULUSMA at HOT NUMBERS in Cambridge. This is to celebrate our signing to Polly’s WILD SOUND label and to also record live tracks which will be featured on our Lantern EP being released this summer. More details to follow shortly.
We are very excited to announce that we have partnered with WILD SOUND RECORDINGS! Below is the official press release:
Wild Sound is delighted to announce partnering with Stylusboy for the production, release and worldwide digital distribution of their music.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Polly Paulusma, founder and CEO of Wild Sound, said: “At Wild Sound we are over the moon that Stylusboy is joining our growing stable of acoustic, roots and folk music. Ever since we first heard Stylusboy back in 2011, we’ve been watching them develop into one of the finest acts right now on the acoustic folk scene. And through talks it’s become clear they have the commitment and can-do indie spirit we so admire here at Wild Sound. We can’t wait to hear the fruits of their studio labour. Collaborating with an act like Stylusboy is a huge honour for us, and we welcome them with open arms to the growing Wild Sound family.”
Steve Jones, on behalf of Stylusboy, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Wild Sound to release our music. We have been fans of Polly’s work for a long time and hugely respect her. Working with Wild Sound is going to allow us to continue our creative DIY approach and grow our audience further.”
Stylusboy’s third EP ‘Lantern’ is scheduled for release on Wild Sound in summer 2013, with the debut album following hot on its heels later in the year.
We are really pleased to announce that on Friday 22nd March we are playing a special showcase event for ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE at LEAMINGTON LAMP.
