Today’s blog feature is about a welsh based band called Courteous Thief. Courteous Thief formed in 2009 as a recording project around the song writing talents of Gary Roberts. Anyone who has joined in the conversations during various #MusicHourUK twitter hours will know that I am a big fan of their work.
Over the years I have had hundreds of bands send me their EPs and albums and every now and then you discover something special that makes you sit up and take notice, a moment where even the hairs on the back of your neck sit up too. When I first listened to their music, I was some what surprised to discover that the band was unsigned.
So what is the song I like of theirs the most? I hear you ask. It is simply, Eyes Wide Open. Take a few moments to listen to this little gem and you will not be disappointed.
Eyes Wide Open was released back in 2011, yet in 2016 – the song still has the same relevance it did back then.
The lads have gone on to record more songs and released their latest album called ‘Beyond These Walls’ which was released in July 2016. Take a listen to their Once Burnt single and you will not be disappointed.
