Keeping up with the Beyond the Woods acts!

As the weather brightens (and then darkens again), and covid restrictions are lifted, what have the Beyond the Woods acts been getting up to?

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks for Alfie Templeman, with the release of his new mini album ‘Forever Isn’t Long Enough’ on May 7th, already on course for the Top 40 on the Official Albums Chart (fingers crossed!). He also announced dates for a US tour, supporting Chloe Moriondo, and has a socially-distanced show coming up on May 20th.

Master Peace has been keeping busy with an NME Home Sessions video! Alongside his guitarist, Ricki, he performed PNE, Overdrive and PDA against a pastel sky. Watch here:

Baby Queen has been all over BBC Radio 1 lately – Greg James is a big fan! Dover Beach was the Tune of the Week back at the end of April, and more recently has been added to the Radio 1 Playlist, alongside the likes of Wolf Alice, Little Simz, Coldplay and Billie Eilish.

Much to the excitement of his local fans, Joesef announced a gig in his hometown of Glasgow. The Barrowland show sold out just one day after general release… and, of course, you can see him live at Beyond the Woods in August!

Luz released a beautiful acoustic version of her latest song, Counting Houses. Give it a listen!

By her own admission, the last twelve months have been full of standout moments for the 19-year-old Irish, half Argentinian musician. Luz’s first two singles released earlier this year, have been streamed collectively more than 9 million times across DSPs; she’s received praise and support from almost all of her favourite musicians inc. Ed Sheeran, Sigrid, Julia Michaels, Lewis Capaldi, Dermot Kennedy and Niall Horan and she’s only just turned nineteen. 

During isolation Luz covered Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now on TikTok. Her piano version of this cover has now amassed over 7,500,000 views and led to Dua Lipa reacting to the cover as part of a HouseParty takeover in May, declaring “I love this so much”.
