The Lounge Crusade

The Lounge Crusade


We're a piano-led pop rock band from Lincoln, England, who write catchy songs to appeal to a wide range of music tastes. Inspirations such as The Doves, Vampire Weekend and Radiohead may give you an idea of how we sound. Then again you might be surprised.


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.
