"BBC Introducing The Lounge Crusade"

As the 1980's pop song said 'the only way is up', Lincolnshire collective The Lounge Crusade are on a mission to prove that.
Formed just a few months ago the band have notched up achievement after achievement.
With an impressive set list and an all-together harmonious sound, the band has also seen success at a national battle of the bands competition.
The band performed one of the most impressive sessions we've seen.
The band comprise of Chris Pearson, Jason Parker, Steven Esberger, brothers Nathan and Joel Berger.

Formed in the summer of 2009, the band knuckled down in practice rooms and in recording studios to produce the songs heard on the show: "I met Nathan when I was born," laughs Joel regarding the bands formation, and through the local music site Lincoln Bands the five-piece met up, "and it went from there."
Keyboard is at the forefront of The Lounge Crusade sound, for that reason their music is akin to the likes of Scouting For Girls. However for an act that has been together for such a sort time, their music is very accomplished showing a band that has the potential to go far. This has come from the bands critical approach to the song writing process: "Even months after a song's been written it changes," said vocalist Nathan, "it adds more texture to it, and it becomes more intricate."
It's the Lounge Crusade's intricate song writing that has seen them so far, and it looks as though it could take them even further: "We've been in a competition called live and unsigned," said Joel, "we're in the area final, if we get through that we can play at the O2 Arena which would be quite a nice possibility."
To get this far is an impressive feat and BBC Lincolnshire Introducing will be sure to follow their progress. - BBC

Bio

We’re Nathan, Joel, Stephen, Jason and Nick, five lads from Lincoln, England.

We're five friends with a die-hard passion for making music. Expressing ourselves in the only way we know how.
We've done things we're proud of, laughed, cried, drunk too much and woken up in hospital. Our experiences shape our music and our songs are heartfelt.

We craft our songs in a small Lounge with a small PA,
If you love life, diversity, passion and a late night sing a long in a local pub with good friends, real ale and an open fire then you've already met The Lounge Crusade.
In the 2 years we've been together, we've had the time of our lives. Our music has already seen us play some of the UK's top music venues including headline spots at Liverpool's Cavern and London's Monto Water Rats. We've supported the likes of Tynchy Stryder, Juan Zelada, The 22-20s and Chris Helme (Seahorses), playing gigs in mainland Europe as well as the UK. Our debut EP was recorded at the legendary Chapel Studios with producer Jim Spencer (Oasis, Charlatans, New Order).

For us it's not about ticking boxes on a musical to-do list, it's about living the moment and connecting with the people who make the effort to come and share the night with us.

In the short time we've been together, the feedback from the growing number of people who get what we do has been amazing.
If you want other people's opinions of our music, google us and you'll find them. Reviews are great and if you want to read poignantly written musical critiques and biographies then there are many about. But If you want to know where we've been, who we are and where we're going, put our music on your musical playing device, close your eyes, sit back and let us take you there.

There's nothing better than chasing your dream, so a BIG thank you to all of you who have supported us and continue to do so.
