the endgame / Bio

A four-piece female-fronted originals band from Durham UK whose style is difficult to categorise, although they have been described as ‘angst-ridden’, ‘seriously inventive’ and, at times, ‘ethereal’. Their music contains elements of indie, rock, blues and soul. Such diversity could be in danger of leading to a lack of individual identity, but not so with the endgame, whose stamp is unmistakeable throughout.

The band have played many gigs in the North of England, including arts centres, pubs, theatres and universities, as well as national music festivals. They have recorded several live sessions for BBC radio and Spark FM and had tracks selected for airplay on ‘BBC Introducing’ and BBC Radio Scotland, as well as being added to the playlist of various internet radio stations.

In the past the the endgame have supported a number of touring bands, including THE BLOCKHEADS, on the Northern leg of their UK tour, at The Arc in Stockton…

In January 2011 they released their first EP - ‘November’.

In April 2011 they released a ‘Bootleg video’ DVD, featuring performances from Durham Live Lounge, Spark TV and Thimbleberry Festival and in July 2011 they headlined at Washington Arts Centre and a one-day festival in Durham..

In 2012 the band recorded a track, to mark the first anniversary of the 2011 Japanese Tsunami disaster, with renowned producer Martin Neil, which was mixed and mastered in Los Angeles and appeared on a compilation album distributed worldwide. In 2013 Martin returned to the UK to produce a complete album – ‘Shifting Circles’ - for the endgame, recorded at Blast Studios, Newcastle-on-Tyne and the House on the Hill Studio, Durham. This project was also mixed and mastered in Los Angeles and appears on the Purple Note indie label.
