Pace are an Alt-Rock four piece from London who’ve been steadily building a reputation for their uplifting live performances and richly textured songs, layering vintage piano sounds with ambient guitars, they convey a feeling of understated emotion through their music and memorable lyrics.Their punchy melodies have resulted in a growing fan base and recognition from the likes of CLASH magazine and PRS for Music as well as BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music radio stations.
Lead singer Jamie Ley has a distinctive baritone and he’s joined by Tillie Russell (vocals and bass), Danilo Rodrigues (drums) and Michael Sheppard (guitar), whose varied but complementary tastes have helped shape their signature sound. After a string of studio sessions with renowned producer Brett Shaw (Florence & the Machine, FOALS), Pace are about to release their new single ‘Boatman’s Weather’.
Rich with emotion, dark and beautifully uplifting, ‘Boatman’s Weather’ is a reflective look at the more simple times of yesteryear. Lead singer Jamie Ley’s voice is powerful throughout
while the soaring instrumentals ebb and flow like the tide but with a storm brewing in the background. ‘Boatman’s Weather’ has a raw intense feel about it forcing the listener to confront their truths head on.
