The Tea Street Band have made many friends in 2013. Their recent single Lost For Words made the playlist at XFM and was chosen by Huw Stephens as BBC Intro Single of the week. These plaudits are richly deserved for this five piece from Liverpool.
Recent shows have been ticket only and have caused twitter storms and sweaty dancefloors. This year has seen the band touring with Inspiral Carpets and playing shows with The Charlatans. They have also played the main stage at Festivals and are now geared up to release their first self titled album in 2014.
Twitter has been key to the band communicating with their fans. Along the way the lads have received praise from Lennox Lewis and seen their videos played on Channel 4. All from the magic of the bands relentless conversations!
The band are Timo Tierney, Nick Otaegui, James Albertina, Lee Smith and Dom Allen. Together they have toured the world this year. Their shows in New York, Sydney, Melbourne and the Republic of Ireland have seen them build a fanbase across the globe. Now the band are ready to extensively tour the UK in 2014. They are building fans across the way from Janice Long on Radio 2 to John Kennedy of XFM. They have picked up plays along the way from Dave Monks, Jo Good, Clint Boon and Rob Da Bank. The Tea Street Band cross over genres and have the spirit of the dancefloor. Some of their songs are becoming anthems across Merseyside and perhaps only a matter of time before the ears of the rest will be singing their songs…

“Think of The Charlatans meeting The Chemical Brothers and lap up the finest cuppa that clubbers can come across”
John Earls, Daily Star
“Think of 808 state having a meeting mid channel to hear some French electronic by Space Disco You need to check these out soon – Come on were British we love a cuppa”
Dave Monks, BBC Introducing
“A glacial slab of guitar-led house that flies us to an Ibizan terrace for cocktails with The Whitest Boy Alive and Aeroplane. It’s really quite beautiful”
Neil Condron, High Voltage
“A shared love of rave culture is present in their output – it’s soaring, distinctly Balearic and sounds as much European as it is rooted in English rock and roll”
Peter Guy, Liverpool Echo
“Their unique sound consisting of straight forward rock n roll combined with heavy drum and bass, techno and House music creates a fusion that can only be described as euphoric; carrying everyone along on the wave of euphoria sweat was dripping everywhere as the five guys sent the crowd delirious. No words can describe the effect this band has on a crowd, and to witness it is magic in action.”
