Society are a three piece band from West Sussex whose music ranges across country-soul, indie and folk-rock. Their album Songs from the Brickhouse was released in 2009. You can hear clear influences of West Coast Country Rock and after hearing the track Back in the Woods The Band’s classic The Weight springs imediately to mind.
The three part harmonies of Matt Wise (guitar), Ben Lancaster (bass) and F.Scott Kenny (percussion) come into a life of their own setting them apart from other acts that take influence from those classic years of the past.
Since forming in 2004 Society have supported many great visiting artistes when they toured the UK, opening for notable musicians and performers such as Eve Selis, Deadstring Brothers, Corb Lund, Luke Doucet and The Wailin’ Jennys.
