    Led by siblings Helen and Joe Hammill, Teesside's Cattle & Cane are capable of shifting even the hardest of hearts with their perfect soaring harmonies. After spending 2017 sharing stages with the likes of Tom Odell, Brian Wilson and The Head & The Heart, not to mention performing countless sold-out headline dates across the UK, Cattle & Cane have been making quite a name for themselves with their magical live shows.

    "Growing up, I remember listening to lots of 70s stuff like Gerry Rafferty, Steely Dan, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and still love all that stuff now - they make the perfect road-trip soundtrack for the van when we're on tour" explains Joe.

    "My favourite era is the 60s - I love Bridget Bardot, Pattie Boyd, Jane Birkin, the Supremes and anyone that wore their hair big and skirts short! They look so glamourous, yet effortless" adds Helen.

    Although the 60s and 70s influences help add a sepia tinted, timeless quality to Cattle & Cane's music, sophomore album 'Mirrors' (May 2017) certainly has its heart and soul firmly in the present.

    Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and mastered by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, New Order) at Abbey Road Studios in London, 'Mirrors' helped the band pick up nominations in three categories at the 2018 Unsigned Music Awards at The Great Escape. The album also hit the top 20 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart thanks, in part, to a successful Pledge Music campaign which reached an impressive 280% of its original target.

    Elton John declared his love for 'Mirrors' opener 'Love On Your Hands' on Beats 1 and '7 Hours' picked up numerous radio-plays from long time fan Dermot O'Leary, who previously showcased the band on his 'Saturday Sessions' compilation following a live session on BBC Radio 2.
    Additional airplay came from the likes of Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Gary Crowley on BBC London and John Kennedy on Radio X, to name but a few.

    Over on Spotify, '7 Hours' passed the 1 million streams milestone in less than 6 months and 'Love On Your Hands' featured on the prestigious New Music Friday UK playlist. Meanwhile, 'Fool For You' earned the band a live session on Vintage TV and was added to the BT TV music playlist, as well as featuring on 'Sunday Brunch', 'Made In Chelsea' and 'The Only Way Is Essex'.

    With extensive support from BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music and Amazing Radio, Cattle & Cane have also been heavily championed by the BBC Introducing team and previously performed on their stages at T In The Park and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park. Furthermore, they were the BBC Introducing Artist Of The Week on the Georgey Tonight show with tracks syndicated across all 40 BBC regional stations.

    The band finished 2017 with a run of 11 consecutive sold-out headline shows across the UK and announced their biggest ever headline gig at the 1,400 capacity Middlesbrough Town Hall with the Northern Orchestra in June 2018.

    Having appeared at acclaimed tastemaker events such as Reeperbahn Festival, Live At Leeds and Evolution Emerging, as well as at some of the UK's finest boutique and inner city festivals including Cornbury, Deer Shed, Liverpool Sound City, Tramlines, Twisterella, Liverpool Sound City, Stockton Calling and Bingley Music Live, Cattle & Cane are equally at home on a festival stage or performing stripped back sets in weird and wonderful venues like delis, libraries and launderettes.
    Catch them on tour throughout 2018.

    "God, I love that!" - Elton John (Beats 1)

    "That was awesome!" - Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2)

    "Gorgeous, soaring, folk-pop anthems for passionate souls" - A Music Blog, Yea?

    "Cattle & Cane are waving the flag on folk-pop music in the UK at the moment" - 1883 Magazine

    "There's way more of a Fleetwood Mac influence than their earlier stuff and I love it" - The Independent

    "They're just going from strength to strength... check out their album 'Mirrors'" - Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6 Music)

    "The band's live show is magical... get ready to clap your hands and sing along - it's pretty much requisite at a Cattle & Cane show" - Metro

    Cattle & Cane: Christmas Tour Dates

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! 'Christmas with Cattle & Cane' has achieved legendary status on their native Teesside and this year, for the first time, the band of siblings are taking their festive show on the road with a short run of dates this December.

    2017 has been quite a year for Cattle & Cane. Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios in London, their sophomore album 'Mirrors' was released in May and saw the band hit the top 20 of the Official UK Independent Album Chart - thanks in part to a PledgeMusic campaign which reached over 280% of its target.

    Tracks from 'Mirrors' have picked up national radio plays from the likes of Elton John, Dermot O'Leary, Frank Skinner, Janice Long, Gary Crowley and Tom Robinson, as well as extensive support from Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing.

    The band also recorded a live session for Vintage TV and were added to the BT TV music playlist, as well as featuring on shows such as Sunday Brunch, Made In Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex. Further media support came with features in The Independent, Metro, Music Week, Record Of The Day, Clash, The Big Issue, UMA and many more as Cattle & Cane continue to pick up the kind of critical acclaim that most unsigned bands can only dream of.

    Over on Spotify, recent singles 'Love On Your Hands', '7 Hours' and 'Fool For You' have accumulated over 2 millions streams and featured in playlists such as New Music Friday, Your Coffee Break and Feelgood Pop along the way.

    It's on the live stage where Cattle & Cane really come into their own and having honed their craft this year by touring with The Head and The Heart and Jake Isaac, as well as supporting Tom Odell and Brian Wilson, it's been no surprise to see 'sold-out' signs pop-up on their own headline shows all over the UK.Tickets for the Christmas shows are on-sale now from their website.
