Welshly Arms Top 5 Influences Playlist

US alternative rock outfit Welshly Arms create ballsy, foot stomping indie rock anthems with hints of gospel and blues as evident in their platinum selling single Legendary taken from the acclaimed debut album No Place is Home. Fresh off a series of European summer festival appearances, the Cleveland based six piece return to the UK this November with The Glorious Sons for a mini UK tour culminating at the Scala in London on 7th November.

Stevie wonder – We can work it out

I always loved how Stevie could turn a phrase with his just his hands. Here he takes such a different approach on one of the biggest songs in rock history. 

Gary Clark Jr – Don’t owe you a thang

I remember Gary’s first e.p. Came out around the same time we were recording

The Box Tops – The letter

We love this song so much that we covered it and added it to our live set. 

Tom Waits – Ol’ 55

Hard to pick just one song off this record but this one stands out for the amazing harmonies. We’re a band of six and harmonies make up a lot of our sound.

X Ambassadors – Boom

We met these guys on tour last summer and were blown away by quality of their live production. Couldn’t stop listening to this record the whole way home.
