Having recently unveiled their debut track Let’s Turn This Back Around, Far From Saints have announced details of their debut live show at London’s EartH Theatre on 5ht June. Let’s Turn This Back Around made an instant impact for Far From Saints, leading to the song receiving its first play from “Whispering” Bob Harris at Radio 2 and then being named as Jo Whiley’s Infatuation.
Now Far From Saints – Kelly Jones of Stereophonics with Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker from The Wind And The Wave – have announced details of their debut live show, at London’s EartH Theatre on June 5th.In addition to the London headline show, Far From Saints will also be hitting the festival circuit this summer – expect more details to be confirmed soon. Jones says, “Like starting over… our first show at EartH Theatre will be a brand new and exciting experience that we can’t wait to share with you all. We’ve got a great band, half Welsh and half American revving up to play the new album in its entirety with some extras here n’ there!”
The trio first experimented with playing music together when The Wind And The Wave opened for Kelly Jones on his UK solo tour in 2019. They would spend their downtime jamming and writing songs together, and they would team up during Kelly’s set to perform a rapturously received cover of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty’s ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’.

After the three songwriters merged their influences, they created a fervent mix of Americana, folk, rock and country influences which very naturally complemented the alchemy and beautiful harmonies crafted by the two vocalists. Those songs were captured organically in two recording sessions spanning just nine days, with the trio producing the project themselves before calling upon the Grammy-nominated Al Clay (Blur, Pixies) for mixing duties. Despite coming together so quickly, their upcoming debut album was held back after the pandemic left Far From Saints an ocean apart. Still captivatingly fresh, the album is now ready to be shared with the world and will be released early this summer.
Tickets for Far From Saints’ EarTH show go on sale HERE from 9am this Friday, February 17th.
