Fool's Gold - Gasoline and Matches
Our next LCM featured band Gasoline & Matches started the year with their debut single and our LCM #SongOfTheDay ‘Fool’s Gold’ topping the UK iTunes Country Chart, a headlining performance at The Hard Rock Café in London and a five date Californian tour.. Gasoline & Matches are already proving why they were named as Lyrics Magazine’s ‘Artists to Watch’ in 2018. Sally Rea Morris and Steve Marks deliver a unique blend of Fleetwood Mac-esque harmonies, Brad Paisley-infused guitar solos and energetic live performances.
The duo initially met through their mutual love of country music back in 2011 when their paths first crossed in a guitar shop in Birmingham. Shortly after meeting, Sally was due to move to America, so they decided to write, record and perform just a handful of shows together before she left. The undeniable chemistry both on stage and in the studio was a sure sign this would likely be just the start of their journey but an ocean apart, their story was put on hold. Upon Sally’s return in 2015, it was a matter of weeks before the duo reconnected and formed Gasoline & Matches. The more recent addition of Daniel James Henry Wilkes on bass, Ben Marshall on keys & banjo and James 'Beef' Randall on drums for their studio & live performances allowed the band’s sound to develop and really start bringing the songs alive.
Making appearances at 2 of the UK’s premier country festivals, Buckle & Boots and FSA Fest, and with a British Country Music Association nomination for Duo Of The Year 2017, this explosive duo are about to set the UK Country scene alight!
