Blue Raincoat Songs have signed the Manchester five piece, Cabbage who are regularly pegged as the most exciting band in the UK right now. Through relentless dedication and hard graft they’ve self-released 4 EPs culminating in ‘Young, Dumb And Full Of…’ and have just embarked on their busiest tour schedule yet.
The band consists of Lee Broadbent (lead vocals), Joe Martin (vocals, guitar), Eoghan Clifford (guitar), Stephan Evans (bass) & Asa Morley (drums). Having been included in the longlist for BBC Sound of 2017 alongside artists such as Anderson .Paak, Rag’N’Bone Man, RAYE & Nadia Rose we know they’ll reach new heights upon the release of their debut album.
