CATTLE & CANE:
Consisting of siblings Joe, Helen, Fran and Vin Hammill, with family friend Tom Chapman on percussion, Sold My Soul is a faultless example of Cattle & Cane’s ability to shift even the hardest of hearts with their perfect, soaring harmonies.
As heard on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio and Channel 4's Sunday Brunch, Cattle & Cane have been heavily championed by the BBC Introducing team and performed at T In The Park and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park before they'd even released their debut single, I Will Rise - which has now had over 1.5 million streams online!
A live session on BBC Radio 2 for Dermot O’Leary followed and one of the tracks they performed has since been released on Dermot’s Saturday Sessions compilation, alongside such luminaries as Keane, The Stereophonics and The XX. Cattle & Cane’s music has also been featured on a variety of TV shows including Made In Chelsea, The Only Way Is Essex and MTV’s Catfish, as well as on popular Brazilian soap‐opera Avenida Brasil, where they were included on the show’s official soundtrack alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Adele and Paul McCartney.
While phrases such as “long--‐awaited” and “long--‐overdue” may have been mentioned in relation to ‘Home’ --‐ and there’s no denying that it’s been the best part of five years in the making the reality is that as plenty of new bands formed, built a buzz and then imploded without a trace, Cattle & Cane have been slowly but surely finding their sound, working on their song--‐writing and building a loyal and passionate following: a fan--‐base which helped propel ‘Home’ into the top 100 of the official mid--‐week album chart and the top 30 of the weekly independent album chart.
