Not many bands can claim living DNA of their chief influences within their sound, but Held By Trees are one. Debut album, ‘Solace’ features contributions from no less than eight Talk Talk/Mark Hollis alumni, as well as veterans of Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, and Blur. Wide critical acclaim followed, and support from BBC 6 Music and Radio 3.

Held By Trees’ live iteration features guitar legend Robbie McIntosh (McCartney, The Pretenders, John Mayer, Talk Talk), Laurence Pendrous on keyboards (Mark Hollis, Anja Garbarek), Paul Beavis on drums (The Waterboys, Andy Fairweather-Low and the Low Riders, Bill Wyman), Andy Panayi on flute, clarinet and sax (Ronnie Scott, McCartney, Hollis). This line-up found themselves at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in late 2022 recording two new EPs, one of live tracks from Solace and one of new music called Eventide, both released in August 2023. Held By Trees are currently recording their second album, and collaborating with vocalists for a series of singles.
