Wilford Social

Wilford Social are an Indie folk band based in London.

Coming from the different backgrounds of rock and classical music they have found a shared love of artists like James Taylor and John Martyn to bands like Fleetwood Mac, the Beatles, and the Head and the Heart.
Harmony singing is a big part of the sound. The influence of the Beatles on the song writing is inspired by the strength of the melody against beautiful chord progressions and keeping the chord changes interesting. The backgrounds of the rhythm section in Brazilian music and flamenco influence the rhythms and grooves of the songs. Many of the lyrics are based on people they know and are often written from their perspective about their life experiences.

Wilford Social have played at venues around London. Last year they performed at Camp Bestival and this year are looking forward to returning to Towersey Festival.
