The Lost Notes
The Lost Notes write songs about things that matter. Like the perils of one night stands and plastic surgery, the plight of bankers, greaseballs, snakes, Greco-Roman health and safety failings, mules, mermaids and the downright miserable.
Formed in 2014, The Lost Notes are a 5-piece band based in Moseley, Birmingham, UK. A place where politics, drunkenness, misery and glee abound. It makes for a great night out. They write songs for chin-strokers, foot-stompers, head-nodders and those who like to partake in the dark art of inarticulate dancing and hollering. It happens. And they love it. All delivered in glorious 3 part harmonies and all on their debut album: “Run Free Right Now” available direct from www.thelostnotes.co.uk/shop or Amazon, iTunes, Deezer, Spotify etc.
The band are: Ben Mills: vocals, guitar, harmonica; Oli Jobes: lead guitar, vocals; Lucy Mills: vocals; Silas Wood: double bass; Max Tomlinson: drums.
Maverick Country Music Magazine – Dec 2017 - Review of Debut Album Run Free Right Now
**** [4/5 star grading]: “Sublime…fearless and entertaining; Extremely clever song-writing and wonderful guitar playing”
Mike Davies Alternative Roots Music, BRUM Radio 03.12.17.
“Launch Night of the Debut Album Run Free Right Now was one of the best gigs I have seen all year. They are an amazing live band! They are really really good so if you get the chance to see them you should. They do a wide spectrum of music from RnB, blues, country, folk. Excellent! They are such fun!... Green Grass is one of my favourite songs of the year.”
FATEA Magazine – Dec 2017 - Review of Debut Album Run Free Right Now
“An assured debut from the Moseley based country-pop band, stalwarts of the Birmingham live circuit, with a large and loyal fan base. Live shows are up-tempo joyous events, the love of the music and trust and affection between band members showing clearly through.
The eleven original tracks (by Ben, Oli or both) are a quintessentially English take on country folk, sharing the melodic and commercial sensibilities of Hank Williams with the quirky Brit-pop of the Kinks, and more than a dash of hot club era gypsy swing… a band that are highly recommended live.”
James Fagan – Sheffield Live – Thank Goodness it’s folk – Nov 2017:
“Absolutely brilliant… Great harmony singers who have the crowds jumping!”
Birmingham Mail, Glee Club gig Review
"One of Birmingham's finest emerging bands, this Moseley based quintet fuse bluegrass, folk, jazz, blues and pop to produce a sound as compelling as it is entertaining… Their catchy songs are so addictively good they’ll have you singing along by the time they’ve got to the first chorus."
Moseley Folk Festival Review – Birmingham Mail
“A highlight…were Moseley band The Lost Notes. They…drew a huge crowd for their fast-paced set that was high on fun and audience engagement.”
