Biography
The Distance blends raw ability, head-bobbing grooves, strange time signatures and challenging lyrics. The band’s sound is a cross between Nirvana, The Beatles and Radiohead – with the odd look in by U2 and Jeff Buckley. Underpinning this diversity is soaring vocals, intelligent arrangements, and progressive song-writing. The band formed in late 2001. Si and Jon had already been writing songs for several years, and invited Paul to complete the line-up. The trio rehearsed and gigged hard, and in early 2003 released their self-financed and produced debut album “Here You Are”.
The record found its way onto Elbow’s tour bus, and was followed up by a phone call the next day. Elbow then introduced the band to Skinny Dog records, the Manchester label set up by Elbow and I am Kloot. The Distance have since been invited to appear with the two bands on a compilation album due to be released on the label later this year. Bookings so far include The Underworld (Camden), The Sugarmill (Stoke-on-Trent) and The Late Room (Manchester). Contact: Stevey Leonard on (01782) 662354 / 07779 540888 / thedistance@email.com
