We caught up with Hometown Show at Victorious last year, and they were more than happy to create a tradition and come talk to us before heading onto the stage for their set. They have been busy in the year that has gone by, releasing their debut album Love, Liquor and Lonely Nights, playing at the O2 in London and taking on the task of curating and headlining the Real Ale Stage at Victorious.
The band is always fun to talk to and this was no exception. All four were present for the interview, so we were talking to Matthew Harrison, Josh Hibberd, Trevor Thwaites and Caz Batten. They spared us a few minutes outside the Real Ale Stage. (more…)
We were also lucky enough to catch up with The Paper Trains outside the Real Ale Stage on the Sunday. As with other bands it was a mad rush for them, not only were they appearing at Victorious, but they also had another show to attend to later the same day. The American Blues band is made up of three members; Nat Olden on vocals and guitar, Si Fisk on banjo and keyboard and JB on vocals, string and bass. They formed in 2011 and since then the Southampton based band has been developing their music, the culmination of which is due to be released this September.
We caught them just as they arrived at the festival and they were than happy to take on the questions and have a chat with us. They discussed who would headline if they were in charge of a festival, charity and an upcoming tour with a Musical Nourishment favourite. (more…)
