Absent Average are…

…Liam and James, a singing/songwriting duo from High Green, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

The boys are lifelong friends having met aged 4 at primary school. Both now 18 years of age, they sing beautifully together and accompany themselves on guitar, cajon and percussion. They have learned their craft busking on the streets of Sheffield and are now starting to make a name for themselves on the pub & club circuit.

Their live set is mainly contemporary covers of artists like Ed Sheeran, Passenger, Taylor Swift – classics from the Beatles, Jacksons and James Brown – and a few of their own original songs.

They released their first original song, “What I Want”, in august 2015 on Soundcloud.
