THE CADBURY SISTERS
We are hugely honoured to be welcoming back The Cadbury Sisters to Songs of Praise, after they proved to be one of 2014's highlights. Not only are we privileged to be opening their tour, we will be the first people to get a glimpse of their new sound!
The Cadbury Sisters are an alternative-pop trio who are set to release their brilliant second EP ‘Sarah’ in June 2015 via Fear of Fiction Records. Recorded at the legendary RAK Studios in London and coming exactly one year after their debut EP ‘Close’, the new release is an exciting departure from the melancholic vocal harmonies that defined that record. Expect to hear a broad spectrum of sonic influences, ranging from Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush to Bat For Lashes and First Aid Kit, boldly displayed alongside lyrics that disclose the siblings closely shared personal experiences and melodies that echo their pop-songwriting sensibilities.
At the end of May the three sisters head out on a 17 date UK headline tour including special shows at London St Pancras Old Church on June 10th and an EP launch at the Lantern, in their hometown of Bristol, on June 17th. Following that the band has a busy summer of festivals ahead, including their debut performances at Glastonbury.

George Wilding is an English singer songwriter. Born in 1996, he now lives in Avebury, Wiltshire.
He taught himself to play the guitar after his younger brother started having lessons, and was writing his own songs by the age of twelve. He had shown no particular interest in music in his formative years other than a tendency to hum words rather than speak them.
Shying away from talent shows, he preferred instead to gain experience performing at local open mic slots where he has developed a loyal following. He describes his songs as abstract stories.
He caught the eye of local musician Nick Harper who asked him to perform at his charity gig Avebury Rocks in 2011 for the Love, Hope and Strength Foundation. Along with Nick, he is the only performer to have played each year since, supporting acts such as Newton Falkner and The Levellers.
George has had multiple plays of his music on BBC Radio 2
