Biography

‘It is nigh on impossible to adequately describe Cakehole Presley. They are a remarkable band, one of that rare breed that combine songwriting and style to produce a sound totally unique and yet universally life affirming. Irresistibly infectious, there is a vein of wit and wisdom that runs through their songs that can catapult you up then plunge you down, but never lets go and compels you to dance your little socks off. This is truly an impressive and highly enjoyable band. With a debut CD recently launched Cakehole Presley are a band going places’ Chapel-cottage.com re: Raglan Festival
