MANCHESTER, THE CASTLE HOTEL
18TH MARCH 2015
Fresh off the back of their debut EP Oceans, acoustic duo Seafret announce a very special headline show at The Castle Hotel on Wednesday 18th March.
Meeting at an open mic night, the two had distinctly different levels of experience. Though a few years younger, Harry Draper was an experienced local musician; Jack Sedman, meanwhile, had quite literally only just discovered his voice. Retaining their love of open mics, the duo appears determined to win over fans one step at a time. “You get up and if you win one person over, that’s one more person,” Jack explains. “It’s all part of it.” Honing their craft by playing along to their parents’ John Martyn and Tom Waits records, Seafret’s youth allows them to bring something fresh, something unheard.
Having supported Hozier and soon to be warming up for George Ezra at a special BRIT’s week event, the guys have gained support from the likes of Clash, Radio 1 and XFM. Honest and captivating, Seafret’s material has a beautifully contagious feel. Writing about life as it evolves around them, the two have a rare observational eye. With the release of their new record Oceans this week, taken from their debut EP the track has already received over 100k streams and reached #1 on the Hype Machine Charts. The song was also awarded the BBC Radio 1 Track of the Day and has been added to the stations In New Music We Trust playlist.
Tickets for his forthcoming show are on sale now and will be available at www.gigsandtours.com
