The Tea Street Band made many friends in their career. Singles ‘Disco Lights’ and ‘Lost For Words’ made the playlist at XFM and were chosen by Huw Stephens as BBC Intro Single of the week. These plaudits are richly deserved for this four piece from Liverpool.
Recent shows have been ticket only and have caused twitter storms and sweaty dancefloors. The last year has seen the band touring with Inspiral Carpets, Jimi Goodwin (Doves) and playing shows with The Charlatans. They have also played the main stage at a host of British Festivals after the release of their debut self-titled album in 2014 on Liverpools, Baltic Records.
Twitter has been key to the band communicating with their fans. Along the way the lads have received praise from Lennox Lewis and seen their videos played on Channel 4. All from the magic of the bands relentless conversations!
The band are Timo Tierney, Nick Otaegui, Lee Smith and Dom Allen. Together they have toured the world this year. Their shows in New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Seoul and across Europe have seen them build a fanbase across the globe. Having extensively toured the UK, building fans along the way from Janice Long on Radio 2 to John Kennedy of XFM. They have picked up plays along the way from Dave Monks, Jo Good, Clint Boon and Rob Da Bank. The Tea Street Band cross over genres and have the spirit of the dancefloor. Some of their songs are becoming anthems across Merseyside and perhaps only a matter of time before the ears of the rest will be singing their songs…
