Cattle & Cane
Teesside siblings Cattle & Cane take to our stage this November.
Cattle & Cane release their brand new album Navigator on Friday 8th November 2019 via Believe. Produced by Pete Hammerton (The Shires, Wandering Hearts, Tom Gregory), sibling duo Joe and Helen Hammill display a confidence and maturity that sees their soaring harmonies and timeless song-writing come to the fore.
The first single taken from the album, Mexico, is set for release in June and has already received support from BBC Radio 2, including a live session on the Saturday Afternoon show.
Sold-out signs are commonplace at their own headline gigs, including huge statement dates in their native North East at Sage Gateshead and Middlesbrough Town Hall, where a crowd of over 1,200 witnessed a magical performance alongside the Northern Orchestra last June.
Helen and Joe have also appeared at acclaimed international tastemaker events Canadian Music Week and Reeperbahn Festival, as well as some of the UK’s finest boutique and inner-city showcases like Tramlines, Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City, Black Deer, Cornbury and Deer Shed.
With blogs such as Clash, Impose, Bitter Sweet Symphonies, Louder Than War, Wolf In A Suit, Queen Beetch and Gigsoup singing their praises, not to mention Music Week, the Independent, Metro and Record of the Day, Cattle & Cane are on the tip of respected tastemakers tongues.
They’ve received airplay from such luminaries as Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, Elton John on Beats 1, Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music, Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Gary Crowley on BBC London and John Kennedy on Radio X, as well as the BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio teams.
Joe and Helen have accumulated millions of Spotify streams, thanks in part to playlists like New Music Friday UK, Your Coffee Break, Fresh Folk, Your Office Stereo and Feelgood Pop.
Over on TV, their music has featured on shows including Sunday Brunch, Made In Chelsea, The Only Way Is Essex, Avenida Brasil and MTV’s Catfish, as well as on BT TV Music and Vintage TV.
The band’s last album Mirrors received prestigious PRS Momentum funding and hit number 2 in the Indie Breakers chart, number 19 in the Independent Album Chart and number 28 in the Vinyl Album Chart.
