Hobson are a Leeds based 7 piece indie/rock band with too many influences to name. Their songs are a salute to old school bands and songwriting with a few twists and quirks thrown in.
After a couple of early versions of 2 of the album tracks were played on BBC Introducing, the band decided to invest in some real studio time to produce Falling As We Fly, an eclectic mix of genre bending tracks with that definitive Hobson sound.
Acoustic & melodic guitars from Chris and Adam, bright brassy tones from Zena and Leigh, driving drum and bass from Sandi and Chris, all brought together with harmonies and that sweet lead vocal from Kelly.
From the ‘in your face’ opening track ‘Shake Your Head’ to the subtle aching ‘Siren’ this album is a testament to the band’s skill, creativity and ability to create a unique sound and original music that feels like an old friend.
‘I cannot even begin to express how proud and privileged I feel to be on this journey with such talented individuals. I can’t wait for everyone to listen to the album and I’d like to thank everyone who has followed us over the years and for your ongoing support. May the journey continue!’ – Kelly Hezelgrave, Lead singer
‘Me and Kell have been writing music together since we were kids and being part of Hobson and recording this album has been the best part of the whole journey. I’m so excited to share what I think is a solid debut, that is the result of the hard work of some really cool people’ – Chris Ferguson, Guitarist
‘What a song and what a voice!’ – Alan Raw BBC Introducing on ‘Had it up to here’.
The band will be touring several HMV stores around the UK to promote their album after its release.
Join Hobson & guests at their album launch party @ Oporto, Leeds Sunday 6pm 17/9/23, Tickets are £7 from Skiddle
