The Hanging Stars

The Hanging Stars launch their brilliant new single Honeywater at SJQ. Blending folk pastoralism with swampy 60s Americana, The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town. The album was recorded between LA, Nashville and Walthamstow, with each of these vastly different places leaving an indelible mark on the songs.

The band is made up of songwriter, singer and guitarist Richard Olson (The See See, Eighteenth Day of May), Sam Ferman on bass, Paulie Cobra on drums, Patrick Ralla (The Alan Tyler Show) on banjo, guitar, keyboards and assorted instruments, with pedal steel courtesy of Joe Harvey White. The Hanging Stars place themselves firmly as part of a long folk tradition encompassing European and North American influences – as a continuation rather than a pastiche of these styles. This is the sound of a band really coming in to their own, fully formed and in no doubt of their vision.
