BIOGRAPHY Firewoodisland started its life as a solo project for Norwegian student Stian Vedøy - while he was studying for his Masters in Music Production in Cardiff - became a coming together of fellow like-minded musicians. A regional win in Norway’s Bandwagon Battle of the Bands in 2013 saw the project become a full band and their debut EP ‘ILD’ followed.
Their second EP, ‘Dome’ - set for release on 22nd April - is the next instalment of the 5 piece’s own brand of pop music. The 5 tracks are a collection of stories from different realms of the imagination, all tied together with cerebral lyrics, tight harmonies, soaring melodies and a Norwegian effortlessness.
The now Bristol-based Firewoodisland are Stian Vedøy (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Abi Eleri (vocals, percussion, samples), Steve Allen (drums), Rowan Blake Talbot (bass) and Dylan Jones (trumpet, keyboards, guitar).
