Playmaker are a four piece band with the classic line up of bass, drums, two guitars and two vocals. They mix tunes with power chords and deliver with exactly the right amount of attitude to create an eclectic sound, which is both unique and instantly addictive.
The band released their 'Arizona' single through small Indie label Pale Fox – it topped the Storm Radio listeners chart for 5 weeks running. It was also played by Steve Lamacq and Clare Sturgess on XFM. On hearing the single, Crowded House manager Grant Thomas immediately licensed the single via Pale Fox for release in Australia on his Indie label Little Big Music.
Their last album, The Girl Who Thought She Could Fly, was released in 2015 and topped the Loud Up Track Of The Week Chart.
In 2016 and 2017 the band appeared at the Hanwell Hootie, one of the UK's best independent music festivals, as well as playing regular gigs around London at venues such as the famous The Hope & Anchor.
Playmaker released a new album, The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life, in early 2018. The band have been gigging around London through the year to promote the new album.
