The duo Stables

Forest Folk and Roots Friday 22nd February

Stables is coming back to Forest Folk and Roots. If you missed them last time put the date in your diary as you’ll be in for treat.

Formed in January 2016 as a side project to their other musical outings, Matthew (Keston Cobblers Club) and Dan’s debut album ‘Beyond Brushes’ was released to critical acclaim just nine months later 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.

Stables put emphasis on ‘energy’ when playing live; switching instruments and producing the sound of a full band, with big harmonies and varied styles – alt-folk at its very best with a sound some say, reminiscent at times of Paul Simon.

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.”

The duo have toured extensively both in the UK and Europe taking in small clubs and festivals along the way.

‘Cracking Stuff!’ – Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music
