Starsailor are one of our second stage, the WONDERS OF THE AGE stage, headliners at HOPE & GLORY this summer.
Early singles Fever and Good Souls quickly cemented Starsailor as a band that were here to stay. As an early NME review had said that once seen live, ” here was a band who were genuinely special, blessed with a singer whose voice thrummed like an emotional telegraph wire, that swerved the pitfalls of indie melancholia and were clearly in love with rock ‘n’ roll and all its possibilities.”
Critical acclaim, supports with Manic Street Preachers and Doves, the single Alcoholic and a Number 2 album all followed.
Second album Silence Is Easy spawned the single of the same name as well as Poor Misguided Fool and Four To The Floor – still all firm fan favourites paved the way to replacing Amy Winehouse as support to the Rolling Stones and next album On The Outside.
A Greatest Hits album has since followed including all the band’s hit singles to date, tours of the U.S.A and now having sold over 3 million albums, they headline the Wonders Of The Age stage at HOPE & GLORY before James take to the Great Exhibition stage.
