The Underground Owls

The Underground owls was originally formed in 2015 by friends Harry Denness (gtr/vocals) and Harry Easterby (gtr) in the Driffield area of East Yorkshire, England. This duo started playing gigs in local pubs around their area and quickly developed a following. The two Harrys and saxophonist, Joe Ingram all went to Driffield school together, and when the band was augmented by two other musicians when they all met at East Riding College Music Academy in Hull in September 2016 (Luke Bushby on vocals and bass and Owen Green who eventually joined them on drums), the band immediately moulded together into a very exciting band; with the facility to produce excellent cover material or original material upon request. After a month of rehearsing, the band had amazingly rehearsed 30 songs, and did their first gig at the Bay Horse in Kilham, East Yorkshire in November 2016. Back in January 2017, Martin Jones, course leader at the music academy set a competition to find an original song to celebrate Hull’s City of Culture in collaboration with St Stephens (local shopping centre). The band won this, and on the strength of a broadcast of their song, and interviews on BBC Radio Humberside’s Breakfast Show; and in particular to the amazing response the band received from listeners who demanded it be played again, record label ERC Academy Records has just signed them and their single ‘City of culture’ is now available on all major platforms such as iTunes and Spotify etc. Future plans include touring and further recordings such as EP, album etc. The Underground Owls are quickly building a huge following on the regional scene. The only way is up, and that is the direction they are going in.
