About The Event
Award-winning Sheffield songwriter Lauren Housley has unveiled her new
band project – Lauren Housley & The Northern Cowboys.
Joined by musicians Thomas Dibb and Mark Lewis, this latest project sees
the Yorkshire musician create uplifting, bold and classic soul inspired
music that would be as at home on the iconic Stax Records roster as it
would be the stages of the South Yorkshire social clubs she grew up
The singer-songwriter and mother of two has already made her mark in the
world of Americana with three independent albums and two BBC Radio
playlisted singles, earning her the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist
of The Year award at 2022’s Americana Music Awards UK.
Housley’s innate talent of writing beautiful, engaging songs, was born
from the intuitive craft of earthy storytelling and delivered with an
emotive knock out vocal performance at their core. After sharing bills
with the likes of Van Morrison, Jack Soveretti and First Aid Kit,
Housley decided to go all-in on her live show, adding the core members
of The Northern Cowboys, before the project snowballed into her main
recording and live project.
