Stornoway Biography - Ab-Zorbing Their Influences
Brian Briggs and Jonathan Quin first met during Fresher's Week at Oxford University. Realising they shared similar tastes in music, the duo recruiting the Steadman brothers on drums and bass to form the band. Deciding to perform under the moniker of a remote Scottish town used in all weather reports and shipping forecasts, the group hit the headlines when fan and radio presenter Tim Bearder locked himself in his studio and played the group's songs back to back for an hour. He may have been sacked but the band went from strength to strength, releasing their debut single 'Zorbing' in 2009. This was followed by a string of festival appearances - including no less than six sets at Glastonbury - and a head-turning slot on TV show Later... with Jools Holland. Consequently, when their debut album Beachcomber's Windowsill hit shelves the following year, they crashed the UK Top 20.
Known for their stripped-back sessions and emotionally powerful ballads, this group have become a must-see act on the UK touring circuit. Their feel-good pop has seen them amass a nationwide fanbase hanging on their every softly sung word. Their most recent release, Tales from Terra Firma, sees the group touring the UK once again with their much admired sound.
