Narrow Plains Q&A

Your name: 
Charlie Ferriday.

Where are you from? 
London, UK.

Name of band: 
Narrow Plains.

Who else is in your band? 
Stuart and Roger Connick.

How would you describe yourselves and your music? 
We are a trio and normally call our sound “acoustic indie”. We write and record our own, original songs that are acoustic-based but owe a lot to the indie tradition.

Who are your main influences musically? 
Many and varied but particularly Goo Goo Dolls, Ben Howard, Bon Iver, Mumford, Newton Faulkener.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Write and record the best songs that we can and share them with as many like-minded people as possible.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Winning “Hard Rock Rising” at Hard Rock Café in London. Tough competition with a lot of great acts competing.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Losing my voice when half way through a set – tried to get the crowd to sing along instead but it really didn’t work out too well!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Probably “So Rewind” – it’s a very popular song live and was one of the first songs that we all wrote together. It was a more ambitious song as it changes tempo, includes a samba beat and features some vocal harmonies.

Where can we listen to it? 
On most music media but here’s a link to Soundcloud: 

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
We have a new album coming out on January 22nd 2016 – it will feature 12 of our own compositions and is being released through Smart Indie.
