Dark, mellow, passionate and most of all sincere. Everything you ever need to know about My Last Mistake is all right there in that sentence. With heart felt lyrics and a voice unlike anyone else, singer/song writer Leah Newcombe is a writer beyond all others, I mean seriously good. And if you love Dashboard Confessional, Counting Crows and Damien Rice, and the mellower sounds of the Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins and many more, you'll definitely love them.

If you don't believe us, then surely 1.75 million hits and 4.4 million plays on their myspace profile speaks for itself. Awe inspiring Friday Night Headliners.

First ot the stage were My Last Mistake, whose vocals provided by Leah Newcombe absolutely blew us away…With a beautifully dark and mellow voice she's accompanied by Richard Norton on second guitar and also the recent addition of a cellist. The band performed several of their own tracks, The Story of Us... standing out highly. (Supporting Newton Faulkner @ The Water Rats, London). -

My Last Mistake bring back something that has been missing from music for a while, now; a woman whose powerful renderings are straight from the soul. She shuns the dance loop for the effects of two acoustic instruments and rejects mike effects in order to show off a dreamy voice, and comes out on top because of it. -

Leah Newcombe is ‘My Last Mistake’ and the name that pretty soon enough will be joined in the hall of fame of the most creative and successful emotional writers ever (mark my words).

Hailing from the glorious United Kingdome and without any label (though be sure this beauty is looking for one), she stands on her feet alone only equipped by her guitar and her unstable sense of sadness and joy at the same time, which is transparent in her music. This is what makes her a unique creator of her kind. -

My Last Mistake are an unquenchable sound, so heart wrenchingly laid open and bare there’s no denying the emotion that escapes through their sound.” -

"Sad, Beautiful Day EP" is a finely crafted 5 track ep that delights im expressions of melancholia. It's dark without being morbid. My Last Mistake have produced and ep that is both delicate in sound, but strong in substance. Care and thought have gone right through this release from the songs to the packaging -

...Their sound however could not be less emo- more a kind of indie though, without listening to it, it is very hard to describe as it seems to almost defy most standard genre types
It gets high reccomendations from me and remains to this date a constant companion in my car CD player. The best advice I could give is that you check them out on MYSPACE.....
Pleasing to the eye, pleasant to the ear.....MY LAST MISTAKE have become one of my favourite bands - -


"Breathe For Me EP" (2009)
"From The Bottom Of My Empty Heart" (20008)* Recorded by Julius Butty (Alexisonfire,City & Colour, Protest The Hero)
"Sad, Beautiful Day EP" (2006)



Please let me introduce My Last Mistake; an acoustic/alt three-piece signed to Universal Publishing. With over 4.7 million plays on their Myspace page within two years alone, and their debut album recorded by award winning producer Julius “Juice” Butty (Alexisonfire, City & Colour, Protest The Hero), this band is surely one to watch.

Described as “Acoustic/Alternative/Americana”, they have performed live across the UK, supporting numerous number one selling artists including Newton Faulkner, Josh Kelley, Joshua Radin and Dave McPherson (of InMe) to name a few, and are set to embark upon their first international tour in the upcoming months; performing in Europe in March/April, and the US and Canada in August 2010.

To date, My Last Mistake have sold over 5,000 physical copies of their debut album and have recently self-released their new EP entitled “Breathe For Me” (dedicated in loving memory to the brother of Leah Newcombe, the lead singer of the band). When asked about her thoughts on the record this is what Leah replied:

“The past few months have been the hardest for all of us, but we think this EP defines us as a band and shows the emotional turmoil we’ve had to face, continue to face, and try to take in each and every day.

But I think the main point is this - If you want to hear something real, something honest, and something pure of emotion - that isn’t generic or pigeon holed- you should listen to this”.
