Narrow Plains are an acoustic-indie band based in London, consisting of Charlie Ferriday (guitar/vocals), Roger Connick (bass/back-up vocals), Edd Simpson (guitar/keys) and Stuart Connick (drums/back-up vocals).  

Narrow Plains formed in early 2012 after writing and self-recording their debut EP “Somewhere In Between” at minimal cost but to some considerable critical acclaim. As one early review noted, “the passion and fury that spawns this type of intense creation is evident in both the lyrics and sound” (Kei Hendrix, Bandmark). After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from the EP, the band decided to gig at any and every location available to them in and around their native London. They have performed at prestigious venues such as the 02 Academy Islington, 100 Club, Barfly, and Cavern Club in Liverpool and an increasing number of festivals. They have also played gigs in the USA.

The band released another self-produced, original double A single, “So Rewind”/ “Keep You Anyway in 2014 which gained them considerable praise, including being picked by BBC Introducing South as their “track of the day”.  The single also attracted the interest of Smart Indie records, who promptly signed the band and commissioned them to produce a full-length album.

In 2015, the band won the Hard Rock Rising competition at The Hard Rock Café in London. They have also received international acclaim and were winning finalists in the 2014 Canadian “Live In Your City” contest of Uprise.FM. They were also selected as Judges Pick by a prestigious panel of music experts in the USA-based Bands4Good online talent contest, winning a recording retreat with the legendary John Davenport in his North Carolina studio. The band used their time with John to record a live version of their song, “Choices” that propelled them to top of the Reverbnation indie charts. 

Having spent over a year recording their debut album, the band have now released the first single from the record “I Should Have Known”. The album is now available on pre-order and will be available for down load on February 14th 2016. Physical copies will be available from the 22nd January 2016.
