Formed in the West Midlands of England, Rumours of Spring play a mix of Acoustic music in the Modern Folk genre that draws on a wide range of influences and a keen listener will find Folk, Rock, Blues and even the odd bit of Jazz finding its way into their sound.

The band was founded in 2012 following a semi-impromptu recording session between three friends over a beer or two. The group hit the ground running and haven’t slowed down since. The line-up that became Rumours of Spring began in February 2013 and they did their first performance at a music festival in Southampton on the 2nd of February. Those first few months quickly built into bookings to play across the UK, even doing some showcase performances and a few live radio sets. In addition to this, they performed in support of Dave McPherson (InMe) and The Levellers.

After the usual unavoidable delays, the anticipated release of the band’s 2013 album ‘After The Rain’ was announced on the 6th of September 2013 and the first radio broadcast of a track from that album was on BBC Introducing the very next day with three more over the following few months. very successful 2013 wound up with a short run of gigs spanning the UK, christened the ‘Not On’ Tour.

2014 was filled with as much excitement and musical madness with a second CD’s worth of songs being written and worked on, currently being recorded with a release date of Autumn 2016, numerous festival bookings and a support with the Folk giants Oysterband. The year ended with a bang, quite literally, as a fairly major car accident put an end to the good run of gigging and put the band effectively on hold. 

2015 was spent finding their feet again and getting back into it with plenty of gigs, including a support slot with Mad Dog Mcrae

So now in 2016, the band is looking to build back up to their previous heights, get their second CD released and see where the wind takes them…
