the floodgates1Tunbridge Wells new acoustic folk-rock trio The Floodgates – Martin Stenning, Tim Fullbrook, Alex Wane – release their debut single ‘You’ on October 13th, which follows the charming and fresh ‘God Knows’ EP (out now).

The trio mentions Mumford & Sons, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Buckley and Tom Odell as their influences…At just 17 years old and still at school, Martin Stenning on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, writes songs from the red walls of his bedroom with all the conviction of any Dylan number. Humbly, he says “I only started dabbling with the idea of songwriting at the beginning of 2013 and alongside Tim we started with a few cover videos on YouTube.”

Check them out at their single launch show with indie-folk outfit Feldspar at Tunbridge Wells Forum on 4 October. Tickets Here
