Sweet Sweet Lies are singers, songwriters and guitarists Dominic Von Trapp and Michael Hayes, ably assisted by Ken Box (piano), Deano Harrington (bass), Dan Brown (drums) and Kris Jones (trumpet).
The band were quickly recognized in Brighton as ones to watch, with word spreading and leading to invites to Glastonbury, The Isle Of Wight Festival as well as The Big Chill enrapturing crowds with their unique blend of melodic accessibility and onstage intensity.

What stands out about Sweet Sweet Lies is the stark contrast between the harmony-laden acoustic warmth of the music and the blood, guts and bitter truths of the lyrics, leading to comparisons with Ray Davies and the dark drama of Nick Cave’s tales.

This band is one of the most exciting acts for 2011…
