About Fine Lines
Championed by Tom Robinson on BBC 6Music “They play like they mean it!” Fine Lines is a seven piece British band that plays exquisite roots-infused Americana.
Started by singer-songwriter David Boardman in 2016, the band has build a deserved reputation with fans of authentic live music up and down the country. Its debut album ‘Hour Of Need’ received universally glowing reviews on its release in May 2017 and they have been performing to increasingly more appreciative audiences ever since including appearances with Texas, Razorlight, folk rock giants Merry Hell, John Power (Cast) and Miles Hunt (Wonderstuff).
Their sound has echoes of Dylan & the Band, Mercury-era Rod Stewart and Bruce Springsteen whilst maintaining a unique quality that is singularly their own. Centred around the twin vocals of Boardman and Zoe Blythe, the sound is perfectly complimented by the fine playing of musicians Gary O’Brien (piano and Hammond organ), Emily Doggett (fiddle), Chris Lee (pedal steel), Jim Broughton (bass) and BBC radio & TV presenter Mark Radcliffe (drums).
Their new album ‘Gaslight Roses’, which also includes new single ‘On the Town’, was mostly written by the songwriting partnership of Boardman and Radcliffe. Boardman’s yearning melodies perfectly complimenting Radcliffe’s nuanced, observational lyrics. ‘Gaslight Roses’ is out now on Parade Recordings.
