Approved: Stealing Sheep

CMU Approved

Former music students at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, where their project was given a kick start in a one-to-one songwriting session with one of the university’s co-founders Paul McCartney, Stealing Sheep have found themselves a fast-growing fanbase since the release of their debut EP, ‘With A Wand She Is A Poet’, in January.

The follow-up, ‘What If The Lights Went Out’, comes courtesy of Manchester indie label Red Deer Club, and features yet more of their gentle folk songs, created using a variety of unusual (and less unusual) instruments and disarming three-part harmonies. You can listen to the EP in full on their MySpace page, and check them out live at various shows, so long as you live no further south than Warwick.
