Last of the Barstools are a London based indie/folk band who write character based songs, rich with harmonies and delicate instrumentation. Their lyrics, both poignant and cinematic have vocal lines shared by chief songwriter Mark Kavanagh and partner Laura Davies, which are swapped throughout, allowing the characters and each story to unfold.
They're debut EP Stories from Somewhere is available on www.lastofthebarstools.com.
Like the EP recordings their live arrangements are diverse and imaginative, drawing influences from Leanard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen to Bright Eyes and The National and all that’s in between. Their unpredictable and creative live shows have received some wonderful reviews in recent months and they have amassed a passionate and growing fan base in a remarkably short period of time.
