Halloe Away were formed in October 2010, when college friends Alex and Joe decided to bring a fresh approach to a music scene heavily dominated by punk/screamo bands, with a new take to the acoustic/folk genre, drawing comparisons to Mumford and Sons & Noah and the Whale.
After playing some highly successful gigs local, they decided to embark on a bigger sound, getting Chris in on Bass, just in time to see Halloe Away earn 2nd place in Selby Battle of the Bands competition; taking reviews such as “acoustic troubadours – Halloe Away – gave a masterclass in how to work a crowd, with a perfectly compiled collection of infectious sing-alongs.” And “Halloe Away are becoming ever popular after their success and overwhelming audience popularity”
This new line-up has seen Halloe Away go from strength to strength. The band recently played on the main stage at Harrogate’s CultureShock festival, and supported Glastonbury new comer Sea of Beas in York, and the Scottish/Canadian super-group The Burns Unit, on their respective UK tours.
Halloe Away are about to begin recording for their upcoming EP, and continue to impress audiences with relentless gigs across the Yorkshire area. Make sure you catch them at a venue near you!
