    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.
