October Plays in Cornwall
Known purely by her first name, October began her recording career as a solo artist, playing all the instruments on her recordings. October produced her first music video with Whirlwind Films for her song Ulterior Motives. She is a regular on the festival scene and has played 9 stages at Glastonbury Festival in just three years as well as singing with the likes of the BBC Big Band and BBC Symphony Orchestra, and has toured extensively playing solo acoustic shows all over Australia and Europe.
October now plays as part of a talented 3 piece band collectively known as 'October', featuring Steve Wellbelove on drums, with Ben Hatwell and October alternately playing the electric, acoustic and bass guitars throughout their set. This tight little trio has developed a unique surfy pop/rock sound with memorable melodies that get the crowd involved. October fronts the band with her uniquely warm yet powerful vocal. Steve and Ben bring with them their experience of writing and touring with the likes of INXS, Scouting For Girls and The Kooks.
October’s music has become closely linked with the surf scene through playing festivals such as Boardmasters and Red Bull Break5, and has been featured in publications including 'Surf Girl' several times. October also writes music for film, with her new song 'Free Your Soul' featuring in the international surf movie 'Lost & Found'.
