DISCOVER BIRMINGHAM: GEORGE PANNELL+ ROBERT CRAIG OULTON + THE PINES + LAUREN HOYLE

George Pannell is an exciting young musician from Birmingham. His dreamy indie-pop sound incorporates influences from fellow Brummies JAWS and Swim Deep, as well as the likes of The Stone Roses and Nirvana.

George has already played all around Birmingham over the last 6 months, including support slots at the O2 Academy.

Now backed by a full band, he plans to release his debut EP over the summer, which will contain tracks with a slightly heavier, more grungy feel to them than his first two singles ‘The Truth’ and ‘Royal Affair’.

After wowing with his debut ‘April Showers’ and follow ups ‘Bad Tastes’ and ‘Hell Knows’, Robert Craig Oulton is back with ‘Pretend I was Dreaming’

After playing in various bands throughout his early teens, Robert started writing his own songs; taking inspiration from songwriters spanning from Neil Young and Joni Mitchell to Justin Vernon, whilst picking up influences from alt-country outfits such as Pavement and Wilco on the way. After becoming a firm favourite on the Birmingham scene from supports with Pinegrove, Magic Potion, and Breathe Panel, “Pretend I Was Dreaming” signifies the start of a new chapter for Oulton.

When asked to describe his latest effort, Oulton had this to say: “Dare I say it, this is my second album period, forget that I haven’t done album one, it has that feeling.”
