The Broken Saints - "The River"
The Broken Saints are an eclectic seven piece acoustic band with a Rock/Folk/Indie/Pop from Sheffield, England.
Originally formed as a two piece acoustic guitar duo and then very quickly a three piece, with the addition of Keyboard, the band has increased in the same way their popularity has grown over the past year. Now standing at seven members, The Broken Saints can boast four fantastic singers and have based their sound on exploiting the harmonies that are created. Heavily influenced by Neil Young, The Last Bison and The Avett Brothers, The Broken Saints are an exciting and uplifting live band which grab your attention and your appeal.
No strangers to the Sheffield music scene, Ryan Wilson (Lead Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) and John Slater (Acoustic Guitar) often crossed paths when called upon for numerous one-off music projects. Ryan, with his distinctive soulful voice, began writing material for a string of solo spots at the Sheffield Tramlines festival in 2012. John accepted Ryan's offer of sharing the stage with him and over the course of several rehearsals, beers and half marathons the two naturally began to collaborate as more dates were added. The boys decided 2013 was right to create something a little more permanent and so the The Broken Saints acoustic duo came to be.
In April 2013, The Broken Saints began recording their first album and enlisted the help of long time friend and keyboard player, Steven Kay to play on some of the tracks. The results and chemistry were too good to release after just a couple of recording sessions and so John and Ryan asked Steve to join the band full time. During the rest of 2013, the band was increased to add drums/bass/fiddle for one off gigs such as their album launch and festivals appearances at Y Not, Sheffield Tramlines and Live in Barnsley. The success and sound born from these gigs encouraged the original members to write with a full band in mind and this has transferred to the second album, Life Sentences which was released in May 2016.
Life Sentences by The Broken Saints is available on CD, at Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and many more online music sites.
