The new young blood of the London Folk scene, The Medlars are a seven piece psychedelic folk rock band with ‘acid-sharp observational lyrics’ FolkWords. They formed in early 2016 through Jimmy Grayburn, who at the time was performing as a solo artist. His lyrics tackle issues around environmentalism, homelessness and austerity cuts and are accompanied by the Medlars’ unique and frank sound.
Their debut album ‘The Medlars’ was released in May 2017.
…an intense, elevating listening experience. The album is as intricate as it is diverse; as entertaining as it is thought-provoking… An album to treasure and a band to watch out for. - Folk Music Radio
