Cattle & Cane

Cattle & Cane

BandPopFolk

Their music is marked by a timeless quality; the band shifting even the hardest of hearts with their perfect, soaring harmonies. Think a folksy Beatles or a softer Fleetwood Mac.

Biography

Cattle & Cane are a real family affair, made up of four siblings. (Joe, Helen, Fran and Vin Hammill)

With BBC Radio 2 support from the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Janice Long, Cattle & Cane are set for a busy year.

Having supported Canadian band Half Moon Run on their UK tour (whose Communion label is home to Mumford & Sons), the Teesside outfit were selected to play at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park by a panel of judges that included Jamie Cullum, Steve Lamacq, Jo Whiley, and Bob Harris. Another UK tour with Goldheart Assembly awaits in October.

Lead singer, Joe Hammill, recently returned from Nashville, Tennessee where he was commissioned along with eleven other UK songwriters to collaborate with top US writers and participate in a series of creative events.

Lyrics

Belle

Written By: Joe Hammill

Your body is bruised, and you are alone,
You're in the cold with no way home, just don't let it show.
So take my hand , don't let go,
watch me burn, watch me fall, so far below.
Oh i can't see the world as you see it right now.
Cos everyone around you is thinking you're alright.
The smile once on your face has disappeared,
nowhere left to run for you my dear.
Cuts like a knife, right to the bone.
So stand tall on your own, just don't let it show.
Oh won't you see the world as i see it right now.
Cos everyone around me is thinking I'm alright.
I give myself to you and nothing less,
nothing in this world, for you, for me.
Oh yeh, my body is yours tonight (repeat)

Sold My Soul

Written By: Joe Hammill

Burning all your bridges to the ground
Forgetting all your omens lay them down
Calling in the darkness
But I can't see your face
I will stay here tonight
Praying for your grace

Cause I sold my soul to the devil I remember
Choking on that cold dark december
I would do it all again for you, for you

Burning all your bridges to the ground
Forgetting all your omens lay them down
Just to hear you breathing is all I need to hear
Don't you turn away dear
There's nothing left to hear

Cause I sold my soul to the devil I remember
Choking on that cold dark December
I would do it all again for you, for you

Coz I sold my soul to the devil I remember
Choking on that cold dark December
I would do it all again for you, for you

Where are we going there's no way of knowing
I'm kneeling and praying so scared to believe in
What you are saying and walking away
To a place I've been saving
Where no one can reach me

So where are we going there's no way of knowing
I'm kneeling and praying so scared to believe in
What you are saying and walking away
To a place my home

Coz I sold my soul to the devil I remember
Choking on that cold dark December
I would do it all again for you, for you

Cause I sold my soul to the devil I remember
Choking on that cold dark December
I would do it all again for you, for you
