“the songwriter’s finest solo moment to date” CLASH

Lloyd will be performing songs from his new EP ‘Dreamland’, which features tracks produced by Hugo White from The Maccabees as well as Jamie T. The EP is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings and reached Number 12 in the iTunes Pop Chart.

“…his lo-fi melancholy is decidedly unpolished, and it’s all the better for its roughness” Pigeons & Planes

The single ‘Pilgrims’ is currently playlisted at Radio X after bagging the Shock Of The New daytime slot and has had further plays on 6Music thanks to Steve Lamacq and Dermot O’Leary’s Radio 2 show. The video which features British Actor Douglas Booth premiered on VEVO clocking up an impressive 37,000 views.
