The five-piece have become widely celebrated and much loved in their home city of Liverpool, where they easily command sell out status at the 02 Academy. Their almost insanely melodic song craft has made them the modern-day exponents of the Mersey sound, a rich tradition stretching back to the days when the Beatles swept the city, and then the world, before them.
What’s fascinating about The Hummingbirds’ sound is that it delivers a 21st century take on that heritage, and sprinkles it with elements of Americana and other influences. Think of the hooks of the Fab Four of ‘64, the harmonies of the Hollies circa Sorry Suzanne and the jangling guitar landscapes of early Eagles, and you’re somewhere near. Yet, after honing their style on stage and in the studio, the group they sound like most is The Hummingbirds. Sponsored by Hobgoblin Music
