Barnesy + The Broxton Hundred + Paradise Circus
2014 saw Barnesy make huge strides in the right direction. Having teamed up with Joe Dwyer and Joe Andrews at Mis-Management in March, Barnesy shared the stage with the likes of both John Lennon McCullagh and James Walsh (Starsailor). May saw Barnesy head over to Ibiza to play at the Ocean Beach Club opening parties – so impressed was co-owner Wayne Lineker he tweeted about his performance to his 117k followers and personally invited him back to play in September. June saw an appearance at the Lunar Festival to rave reviews, and August saw the Birmingham troubadour perform a much-anticipated set at Moseley Folk Festival.
Barnesy is currently recording in the studio following the release of his single ‘Blue Flashing Lights’, mastered by the legendary Pete Maher.

Plus support from THE BROXTON HUNDRED
Formed in early 2012 The Broxton Hundred take their inspiration from 1960’s pop, 1980’s electronica and the rebirth of guitar led indie music from the early 1990’s. From these inspirations, they have developed their own sound of psychedelic guitars over a loose and funky rhythm section, making their songs instantly danceable.
An impressive list of gigs since their formation including successful appearances at both The North Descends and BWM festivals, in-store gigs at Pretty Green Manchester & Covent Garden and a headline slot at the O2 Academy Islington have helped them to refine their sound. The band have also been featured on Fred Perry SubCulture as well as being championed as “New Artist Of The Day” by Louder Than War.
The Broxton Hundred released their debut EP Higher Surroundings in 2012 to great acclaim. The singles ‘Circles/Time’ and ‘Different Beat’ followed in 2013 & 2014 respectively. The latest EP Last To Know was released in June 2015 and is available now.
