Turin Brakes will celebrate their Bluesfest debut in 2017, showcasing the band’s latest work from their seventh studio album Lost Property released in January 2016. One of the finest indie bands of the last decade Turin Brakes are still going strong after 16 years.
Formed in Balham, South West London, in 1999 by childhood friends Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian (now joined by long term collaborators Rob Allum & Eddie Myer). Having sold over a million records to date, the band have enjoyed both critical acclaim and commercial success o with their song Pain Killer (Summer Rain) getting to number 5 on the UK charts.
Turin Brakes reputation as a fearsome live act able to hold any size crowd with sheer chutzpah is a testament to their longevity.
