Stables + support
We´re pleased to bring Stables back to Forest Folk and Roots. Formed in January 2016 during late night drinks between Matthew and Daniel in London. Matthew was working on a new project idea at the time and, after playing through what was to become their first single, ´Steam´, at 5 am, the duo was born, and quickly went public four months later.
Their debut album ´Beyond Brushes´ was released to critical acclaim just nine months after, in August 2016, and was championed by the likes of BBC´s Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and BBC6 Recommends amongst others, soon establishing them firmly on the circuit, with a growing fan base.
Just a month after the release Matthew and Daniel embarked on their first UK headline tour, followed by a small French headline. Stables put emphasis on ´energy´ when playing live; switching instruments and producing the sound of a full band, with big harmonies and varied styles.
Matthew says; ´I always wanted to create a simple sound that could then be taken further when needed, from a small folk club, to a large festival stage´. Stables have gone on to tour the UK further, performing at major festivals including Glastonbury Festival and several European, headline tours.
Stables´ second album, ´Reverie´, was released in February 2018 with a launch at St Pancras Old Church. ´We´re incredibly proud of this record and can´t wait for people to hear it´. Matthew calls it an ´almost break up album´ that he wrote whilst in a ´period of relationship unrest, which resolved during the process´. ´This is the album we always wanted to release when we first imagined Stables. We love our debut, but this feels like the sound we always set out to produce´.
