Peace     Gave them their first outdoor festival booking

The BBC's Sound Of 2013, chart history & Reading + Leeds festivals

Peace started off life as November & The Criminal playing their first sets around Worcester City Centre. After Andy O'Hare, a resident reviewer on my radio show, tipped me off about this group - I got them in for a live session and then I booked them for Nozstock. The band would later feature in our top ten picks of 2010 - and three years later, after signing a deal with Columbia, would make it into the BBC Music Sound Of... list.
