The Reads hail from the borderlands of North Wales & the North West of England. Their debut album ‘Stories from the Border’ (2011) and their follow-up ‘Lost at Sea’ (2014) gained the band a loyal fan base across Wales and the North West as well as national radio plays on BBC Radio 2, XFM and Amazing Radio. They have been ‘Artist of the Week’ on BBC Radio Wales several times. They have recently finished recording their third album and are excited to share the fruits of their labour when the album is released later this year.
