Cable Street Collective

London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album. Their first new release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown, of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.

Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned below.

In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively – playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet.

“Their music grooves like a bastard.” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music & BBC Introducing)

“Such a great live band.” – John Kennedy (RadioX Xposure)

“Music that makes you want to dance your ‘beep’ off” – Amy Lamé (BBC 6 Music)

“Spicy indie pop with a tropical feel.” – CLASH Magazine

Quick response to my queries and a really friendly tone from the off. There was no sense of pressure to go ahead and make the booking so I was able to investigate my options before confirming - though, granted, this booking has been made 2 years in advance! I've got all the info I need, including technical and other requirements for the artiste, a clear schedule for payments to be made and I feel confident that things will continue to be handled well.
