The Dunwells head out on tour this month. The tour began in York last night, and will take in a show at London’s Water Rats, before finishing up in their hometown of Leeds on 28th Feb with a gig at The Wardrobe.
The four-piece, made up of brothers Joseph and David Dunwell and friends Robert Clayton and Adam Taylor, released the ‘Show Me Emotion’ EP in September last year. Produced by Steve Harris (Kodaline, Kaiser Chiefs) the EP features an incredibly emotional set of songs, with heartfelt lyrics and four part harmonies to melt even the hardest of hearts.
They were drawn together by their shared love of bands like Bon Iver, Elbow and Damien Rice and have been making music together since they first met in school.

With one album under their belt, and several rounds of successful touring in the US and UK, the February tour will see the band showcasing songs from their brand new EP ‘Lucky Ones’, due for release in May.
Across the tour, the band are recording a song a night in each dressing room for what they have coined the #backstagesessions. Check out new song ‘Animal’ from York here: http://youtu.be/PILfCZK1PIY
