The Martin Harley band are an internationally acclaimed 3 piece act. Their 'British Americana' sound, influenced by Delta Blues and Gypsy Swing has produced a road worn style of song writing. Performances at Glastonbury's Acoustic and Avalon stages have cemented their popularity as part of UK's acoustic scene and the home grown, hard touring approach they've employed over the last eight years has built them a strong fan base worldwide.
The band itself has endured some personnel shifts during its lifespan, but has now evolved into the powerhouse trio of Martin Harley (vocals, guitar, Weissenborn), Pete Swatton (drums, percussion, balalaika, backing vocals) and Jay Carter (double bass, guitar, backing vocals).

With gritty sonic depth, Irish songwriter Marc O’Reilly attacks his muse with a bipolar verve that swings from reflection to sheer riotous joy. Backed by the tightest band in Christendom, rare and beautiful songs slam into wild blues fragments and effortlessly back to clean vocal harmonies.
Marc has toured all over Europe including appearances at major festivals like Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Beautiful Days, Boardmasters, Shambala and Dranouter. He has also played in the US appearing at the Live in the Vineyard Festival in Napa, California.
His alter-ego side project with his brother Pierre, the electro-pop duo ‘R’, recently receieved excellent radio support for their debut single ‘Change’ from tastemakers such as Steve Lamacq (BBC 6music), Janice Long (BBC Radio 2) and Paul Mcloone (Today FM) and reached Number 1 on the Amazing Radio Chart.
As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, Marc has also provided vocals on 3 tracks for the new album by MOBO winning act Karios 4tet which was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, has received 4 star reviews from Mojo, The Independent and Guardian and has led to the recording of a live BBC Maida Vale session for the Jamie Cullum Show on BBC Radio 2.
