Here are some highlights…
Liam Short’s and James Knight’s harmonies blend impeccably and beautifully throughout their songs. They exude a quiet confidence as well as an unabashed humility as they engage with each other and the audience.
Accompanying themselves on guitar, cajon and percussion, their flawless performance drew me into a joyful musical escape.
Their lifelong friendship is evident through their musical connection and gentle banter. Their feel good rapport is the perfect tonic for the hardships of life.
The dynamic duo ended their set with 2 original songs, the highlights of the evening. The rhythmic “What I Want” showcases Absent Average’s clean vocals. They deliver with their 18 year old energy as well as an “old soul” kind of passion. “Swings and Roundabouts” ebbs and flows with a mature musicality, flawless diction and their signature harmonies.
I can’t wait to hear more from Absent Average who are anything but average. catch them if you can.

We played the MEN Diary Party on the 23rd of September. We loved every second of it, especially since we got to share the stage with X-Factor’s very own YES LAD, as well as the always riveting Rockaoke!
Last saturday we played our regular “last saturday of the month” gig at The Bridge in High Green. It’s a great local gig and we have a lot of fun playing it. Even though our set was interrupted this time by two really long fights on the TV. Thankfully so such trouble at the bar.
Here’s a short film of us playing “Black & Gold”.
We’ll be playing at The Bridge on most last saturdays of the month throughout 2016. Onstage around 8pm through til midnight (and maybe beyond).

See the facebook event for more details.
Play It Forward hand picks the freshest talent and brings them together to create something really exciting. The artists names are put into envelopes and pulled out at random, this then forms the running order of the night. Each artist then takes to the stage to perform three tracks of their own choice. They then join forces with the artist before and after them to collaborate on a track. No interruptions, no ‘get yourself to the bar’ breaks, just pure non-stop music.
We have some news…
Listen out on BBC Radio Sheffield on Saturday night (19/09/2015) as our new song What I Want will be played between 8pm and 10pm!

We had a fantastic time performing at the Penistone Show, thank you for the lovely support and kind words. We also had our first radio interview after the gig which was really cool! x
