Frànçois came to Bristol from France in September 2003. He drew a picture and put a note in a window announcing his arrival, and asking people to make music with him. He started going to car-boot sales to find some instruments he could use. Overnight, Frànçois won the hearts out of this town. In 2005, he brought together some of the best musicians in Bristol to form his backing band, The Atlas Mountains. Featuring members of Crescent, Movietone, Arctic Circle, Headfall, Ladybird and more, The Atlas Mountains provided the perfect backing for Frànçois' second dreamlike record, The People to Forget.
'luscious, harmony-driven melodies, lilting mandolins and energetically warm tunes, all thrown together to create a beautiful heart-warming racket.'
Sparkwood&21 are four friends who came together one warm, drunken summer's evening, to keep themselves immersed in music. Fast forward to today and they've made a small but treasured dent in the affections of a whole bunch of new friends and acquaintances across the UK and beyond.
Their debut album, ‘By the Waters Edge’ is self-released in late September.
